Can't you see, I love you,

Please don't break my heart in two.
           D/G     D                                  
That's not hard to do,
         Em7           A7    D  
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart.


VERSE 2:

And if you say “Goodbye”,
A7     D           D/G   D
Then I know that I would cry.
      D/G     D
Maybe I would die,
       Em7            A      D  D/G  D
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart.

It was always you from the start.

Treat me like you really should.
       D       D/G       D
'Cause I'm not made of wood,
      Em7           A7    D  D/G  D
And I don't have a wooden heart.

Zum Stadtele hinaus.
         D/G   D

Und du, mein schat, bleibst hier?

Stadtele hinaus,
        Em7         A7      D    D/G  D
Und du, mein schat, bleibst hier?

Wie du wirklich sollst,

'Cause I don't have a wooden heart.


CODA:(To the sound of the puppet’s father, tapping Elvis’ head and shoulders down and out)

Elvis: “Oh-oww, Oh-oww”

(The Puppet Theatre Curtain falls) 


[End]


Notes.
1.  Apologies, if I misheard something?  Feel free to simplify and adapt, as necessary.
2.  This movie has great memories for me, of long-lost family members and young friends.  
As it was the only Elvis movie that treated him, albeit within a fictional script, 
as part of his ‘own story’.  Not the unbelievable fictions of Hollywood and tinsel-town.
3. Google translate's and my bad 'best guess' at the German lyrics.  I look forward to corrections.

"Because I must, because I must,
Leave this city, leave this city.
And you, my treasure, remain here?

There's no strings upon this love of mine,
It was always you from the start.

Be good to me, Be good to me,
Be (good to) me, how you really should.
What you really should,
'Cause I don’t have a wooden heart!"
