Perkins released the song as a single on 6 January 1958, backed with Lend Me Your Comb – also recorded by The Beatles for the BBC in 1963.

Glad All Over is not to be confused with the Dave Clark Five’s song of the same name, which in January 1964 knocked I Want To Hold Your Hand off the number one spot in the UK singles chart.

The Beatles first recorded the song on 16 July 1963, for the 10th edition of the Pop Go The Beatles show. It was performed at the BBC Paris Studio, London, and first broadcast on 20 August. This version was later released on the Live At The BBC collection.

The second recording was just a few days later, on 30 July. The Beatles recorded six tracks for the Saturday Club programme at London’s Playhouse Theatre, which were first transmitted on 24 August. This version of Glad All Over is currently only available on bootleg recordings.

Lyrics

Ain’t no doubt about it this must be love
One little kiss from you
And I feel glad all over
Ooh baby
Hot dang dilly, it’s silly
But I’m glad all over

Yeah the goosepimples baby ’cause I feel so good
When you call me like you do
And I feel glad all over
Ooh mercy
I’m rock gone pappy and I’m happy
And I’m glad all over

Your touch goes through me like electric wire
Never thought I’d make love
It don’t take much looking to see what I’ve got
But it shows, yeah it shows

Come on honey bunny
Give me one more time
Every time you do
Well I feel glad all over
Ooh baby
Hot dang dilly, it’s silly
But I’m glad all over
Yeah!

Tried to tell you how I’m cooking inside
When we’re cheek to cheek
My temperature is low
Fever is high
I can’t speak
I’m too weak

Well come on honey bunny
Give me one more time
Every time you do
Well I feel glad all over
Ooh baby
Hot dang dilly, it’s silly
But I’m glad all over

Hot dang dilly, it’s silly
But I’m glad all over
Well, hot dang dilly, it’s silly
But I’m glad all over

    Another Carl Perkins classic, his last single for Sun Records. In common with other US artists (Holly, Cochran, Vincent, etc.), Carl was much more popular & appreciated in Britain than in the US.
