All Shook Up Lyrics

Oh, well, a-bless my soul, but what's wrong with me?
I'm itchin' like a man on a fuzzy tree
My friends say I'm actin' wild as a bug
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm-mm, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, well, my hands are shaky, and my knees are weak
I can't seem to stand on my own two feet
Who do you thank when you have such luck?
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm-mm, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well, please, don't ask me what's upon my mind
I'm a little mixed up, but I feel fine
When I'm near the girl that I love best
My heart beats, so it scares me to death

When she touched my hand, what a chill I got
Her lips are like a volcano that's hot
I'm proud to say that she's my buttercup
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm-mm, yeah, yeah, yeah

My tongue gets tied when I try to speak
My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
There's only one cure for this body of mine
That's to have that girl that I love so fine

When she touched my hand, a-what a chill I got
Her lips are like a volcano that's hot
I'm proud to say that she's my buttercup
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm-mm, yeah, yeah, yeah

Mm-mm, yeah, yeah, I'm all shook up

All Shook Up Tips

This song I'm playing with a capo on the 2nd fret with drop d tuning. The original key is in A with a capo on the 1st fret which is technically A#, so a much higher key. But as I always say, the key don't matter if you can't sing it there, so find a spot that works for you.

The rhythm on this song is a steady up and down with a few shuffle strums to represent some drum rolls, but those are always optional.

There is no lead work in this song, just straight rhythm.

Some Elvis Trivia about All Shook Up

"All Shook Up" sold incredibly well upon its release. It became Elvis Presley's first single to sell over one million copies and achieve gold status. It also holds the record as the fastest-selling single in RCA Victor's history up to that time.

The idea for "All Shook Up" came to songwriter Otis Blackwell when he heard a phrase that a bus driver used. The driver said he was "all shook up" after a bumpy ride. Blackwell found the phrase intriguing and turned it into the song's memorable chorus.

Musically, "All Shook Up" was influenced by two earlier R&B songs: "That's All Right" by Arthur Crudup (which was also one of Elvis's early hits) and "My Baby Left Me" by Arthur Crudup. The rhythmic guitar and uptempo feel of these songs are echoed in "All Shook Up."

 "All Shook Up" dominated the charts when it was released. It simultaneously held the number one spot on three major Billboard charts in 1957: the Hot 100 singles chart, the country singles chart, and the R&B singles chart. This achievement showcased the widespread appeal of the song across different genres and audiences.

"All Shook Up" was not just a hit in the United States; it achieved significant success globally. The song topped the charts in the UK, Canada, Australia, and several other countries, further solidifying Elvis's status as an international superstar.

Despite its widespread popularity, "All Shook Up" faced some resistance from the BBC in the UK. The broadcaster initially banned the song from being played on their radio stations due to its suggestive lyrics. However, this ban was later lifted, and the song's popularity continued to soar.

"All Shook Up" remains a pivotal and much-loved song in Elvis Presley's discography. Its cultural impact and timeless appeal have made it a rock 'n' roll classic for generations of music lovers.
