Don’t Ask Me Why – Elvis Presley

Do you know?

Don’t Ask Me Why” is a song first recorded by Elvis Presley as part of the soundtrack for his 1958 motion picture King Creole. It was written by Fred Wise (lyrics) and Ben Weisman (music). In 1958 the song was released on a single as a flipside to “Hard Headed Woman”, another song from the same movie. In the United States “Don’t Ask Me Why” peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, while “Hard Headed Woman” was number 1 for two weeks.

The song is a ballad in which the singer begs his lover not to ask him why he loves her so much. He says that he can’t explain it, but that he loves her more than words can say. The song is a beautiful and moving expression of love, and it has become one of Elvis’s most popular ballads.

Here are the lyrics of the song: “Don’t Ask Me Why”
(from “King Creole” soundtrack)


I’ll go on loving you
Don’t ask me why
Don’t know what else to do
Don’t ask me whyHow sad my heart would be
If you should go
Though you’re not good for me
I want you so

It’s not the kind
Of love I dream about
But it’s the kind
That I can’t live without

You’re all I’m longing for
Don’t say good-bye
I need you more and more
Don’t ask me why
I need you more and more
Don’t ask me why
