– The song was revived by Presley in 1972 during his engagements at the Las Vegas Hilton in February 1972 and was used regularly in his live shows until mid-1973. It was performed live for the last time on January 26, 1974. The song is included in the 1972 documentary Elvis On Tour and his 1973 show broadcast via satellite, Aloha from Hawaii.

Lyric

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
Hey baby, I ain’t askin’ much of you
No no no no no no no no baby, I ain’t askin’ much of you
Just a big-a big-a big-a hunk o’ love will doDon’t be a stingy little mama
You’re ’bout to starve me half to death
Now you can spare a kiss or two and
Still have plenty left, no no no
Baby, I ain’t askin’ much of you
Just a big-a big-a big-a hunk o’ love will do(That’s right)You’re just a natural-born beehive
Filled with honey to the top
But I ain’t greedy baby
All I want is all you got, no no no
Baby, I ain’t askin’ much of you
Just a big-a big-a big-a hunk o’ love will do

(That’s right)

I got a wishbone in my pocket
I got a rabbit foot around my wrist
You know I’d have every thing my lucky charms could bring
If you’d give me just one sweet kiss, no no no no no no no
Baby, I ain’t askin’ much of you
Just a big-a hunk-a hunk-a hunk-a love will do

(That’s right)

Just a big-a big-a big-a hunk o’ love will do

(That’s right)

Just a big-a big-a big-a hunk o’ love will do

(That’s right)

Just a big-a big-a big-a hunk o’ love will do

(That’s right)
