Well it's one for the money, two for the show
Three to get ready, now go cat, go
But don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well you can knock me down, slap in my face
Slander my name all over the place
And do anything that you wanna do
But oh-oh honey lay off of my shoes
But don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well you can burn my house, steal my car
Drink my liquor from my ol' fruit jar
Do anything that you wanna do
But oh-oh honey lay off of my shoes
Now don't you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes
