Facts:
  • Elvis Presley later recorded an equally strong version of this song; it reached #20 on the BILLBOARD charts in April 1956. (sav-man)
  • Perkins wrote the lyrics for this song on a paper sack (he later admitted that since his family was living in extreme poverty, they didn't have writing paper, because there was no necessity for it in their lives). (sav-man)
  • Perkins got the idea for a song when he saw a man chastise his girlfriend for stepping on his shoes (yes, they were indeed blue and made from suede). (sav-man)
  • Reached #2 on the BILLBOARD charts in March 1956 (it also crossed over to the Country charts, reaching #1). (sav-man)
  • This is one of the all-time definitive Rockabilly songs. (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Well, how come you say you will when you won't?
    Say you do, baby when you don't
    Let me know, honey, how you fell
    Tell the truth now, is love real?
    So, aw, aw

    Well, honey don't
    Well, honey don't
    Honey don't
    Honey don't
    Honey don't
    I say you will when you won't
    Aw, aw, honey don't

    Well, I love you, baby, and you ought to know
    I like the way that you wear your clothes
    Everything about you is so doggone sweet
    You got that sand all over your feet
    So, aw, aw

    Well, honey don't
    Honey don't
    Honey don't
    Honey don't
    Honey don't
    I say you will when you won't
    Aw, aw, honey don't

    I feel fine
    Ooo, oo, I say

    Well, sometimes I love you on a Saturday night
    Sunday morning, you don't look right
    You been out painting the town
    Uh huh, baby, you been slipping around
    So, aw, aw

    Well, honey don't
    I say, honey don't
    Honey don't
    Honey don't
    Honey don't
    I say you will when you won't
    Aw, aw, honey don't

    Well, honey don't
    Well, honey don't
    A little, little, honey don't
    I say, you will when you won't
    Aw, aw, honey don't
    (I B Emerson)
