Elvis Presley – Any Way You Want Me

Do you know?

Any Way You Want Me (That’s How I Will Be)” is a song written by Aaron Schroeder and Cliff Owens and originally recorded and released by Elvis Presley in 1956. It was a double A-side single with “Love Me Tender” and reached number one on the US Billboard’s Most Played in Jukeboxes chart.

The song is a ballad in which Elvis sings about his devotion to his lover and his willingness to be whatever she wants him to be. He compares himself to a mountain, a willow tree, a baby, and the raging sea, and says that he is “clay in your hands” to be molded as she pleases.

Elvis’s recording of “Any Way You Want Me” is a classic example of his early rock and roll style. It features a driving rhythm, soaring vocals, and a simple but effective arrangement. The song has been covered by many other artists over the years, but Elvis’s version remains the definitive one.

Here are the lyrics of the song: “Any Way You Want Me (That’s How I Will Be)”

I’ll be a strong as a mountain,
Or weak as a willow tree,
Anyway you want me,
That’s how I will be.I’ll be a tame as a baby,
Or wild as the raging sea,
Anyway you want me,
That’s how I will be.

In your hand my heart is clay,
To take a mold as you may.
I’m what you make me, you’ve only to take me,
And in your arms I will stay.

I’ll be a fool or a wise man,
My darling you hold the key,
Yes, anyway you want me,
That’s how I will be,
I will be.
