“Baby Let’s Play House” is a song written by Arthur Gunter and recorded by him in 1954 on the Excello Records label and covered by Elvis Presley the following year on Sun Records.
Elvis Presley version
Elvis’ version differs greatly from the original: Elvis started the song with the chorus, where Gunter began with the first verse, and he replaced Gunter’s line “You may get religion” with the words “You may have a Pink Cadillac”, referring to his custom-painted ’55 Cadillac auto that had also been serving as the band’s transportation at the time.
Baby Let’s Play House was on the fourth issue of a Presley record by Sun, and became the first song recorded by Elvis to appear on a national chart when it made #5 on the Billboard Country Singles chart in July 1955. Elvis’s version also starts out with Elvis introducing the lyric-stutter to the music pundits. These lyrics and melodies are not found in the original Arthur Gunter version.
