How to Sing Like Elvis Presley – “Love Me Tender” karaoke lyrics

How to sing like Elvis – “Love Me Tender”
This short clip is an excerpt from Sing Like The King: The Definitive Training DVD Series for Professional Elvis Tribute Artists. The full length singing lesson for LOVE ME TENDER is on the DVD “Sing Like the King: Volume 2: Ten Hits of the 1950’s.” Available at

Elvis Tribute Artist Hall of Famer Doug Church demonstrates the difference between singing with “no Elvis style” and then shows how to add the unique Elvis style, taking you note by note and rewriting all the lyrics with their phonetic pronunciations so you can learn to sound just like Elvis.

The full length DVD includes song charts, with detailed, in-depth instructions on how to sing the lyrics of ten different Elvis hits from the 1950’s. Other volumes cover different eras of Elvis Presley’s song catalog. With these videos, you’ll learn how to improve your vocals, and more importantly, how to sound more like Elvis.

While some Elvis tribute artists may hit all the right notes, they rarely learn the subtle nuances, precise pronunciations and exact mannerisms that help truly create the Elvis illusion. This is why we created the training video series “Sing Like The King.”

Your instructor and vocal coach is legendary Elvis tribute artist Doug Church, a former world-champion and veteran of the esteemed Legends in Concert tribute show. This video series is like taking a year of singing lessons from one of the most accomplished Elvis tribute artists in the world.

LOVE ME TENDER (song lyrics)

Love me tender,
Love me sweet,
Never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
And I love you so.

Love me tender,
Love me true,
All my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin I love you,
And I always will.

Love me tender,
Love me long,
Take me to your heart.
For it’s there that I belong,
And well never part.

Love me tender,
Love me dear,
Tell me you are mine.
Ill be yours through all the years,
Till the end of time.

(when at last my dreams come true
Darling this I know
Happiness will follow you
Everywhere you go).
