This week Jim Adams has prompted us with Diamond/Emerald/Jade/Pearl/Ruby/Sapphire for this weeks Song Lyric Sunday. Happy Easter everyone! I chose Elvis this week as I haven’t given you my favorite entertainer in a while. Plus, I was looking for a song with sapphire in it as it is my birthstone.
“A House That Has Everything” was written by M. Arnold, J. Morrow & C. Martin for the movie “Clambake” starring Elvis Presley, Shelley Fabares, Will Hutchins and Bill Bixby. “Clambake” is a musical film released in December, 1967 in which Presley plays Scott Hayward, heir to an oil fortune who trades places with a water-ski instructor, Tom Wilson, played by Will Hutchins. Fabares is cast as a gold digger named Dianne Carter who is trying to impress a young wealthy playboy James J. Jamison III played by Bixby. Scott changes places to see if girls will like him for himself and not for his father’s money. The story takes place at a Miami hotel in Florida, however most of the film was shot in southern California.
"A House That Has Everything" (from "Clambake" soundtrack) I can see you now living like a queen In a house that has everything, everything but love Crystal chandeliers, chauffeured limousines Yes you'll really have everything, everything but love I see diamonds, sables, sapphires and pearls And as the picture clears Poor little rich girl sitting all alone Counting her treasures in tears Better just a shack where two people care Than a house that has everything, everything but love I see diamonds, sables, sapphires and pearls And as the picture clears Poor little rich girl sitting all alone Counting her treasures in tears Better just a shack where two people care Than a house that has everything, everything but love Than a house that has everything, everything but love Written by: Roy C. Bennett and Sid Tepper
