What's she really like
The girl that you see me with
What's she really like
The one I’m so dreamy with
Well, let me tell you she's wonderful
She's marvelous and she's mine

Told here that her lips, her lips are so thrillable
I can't describe her kiss in words of one syllable
She's even more than desirable
And what's moreable she's mine

What's she really like
The girl I go on about
What's she really like
The one I’m so mad about
All I can say, she's wonderful
She's marvelous and she's mine

You're asking if she loves me
Well, you don't know the half
You're wondering if she'll leave me
Ha, ha, ha, don't make me laugh

What's she really like
The girl I go on about
What's she really like
The one I’m so gone about

All I can say, she's wonderful
She's marvelous and she's mine
Recorded: 1960/04/28, first released on G.I. Blues

I'm not fond of the master. But I do like the so called club version found (I believe) on the FTD G.I. Blues release. 3 stars. As a whole, I do enjoy the G.I. Blues soundtrack.

GI Blues was not a pop album, it was a family musical, and a good one, bettered only by Blue Hawaii.
I always preferred the studio type albums, in fact I didn't buy GI Blues until the 1990's. With regards to 'What's she really like' I like it but don't often listen to it. 3 stars.

John Lennon's description of the post-army Elvis is accurate for the Elvis in GI Blues and Blue Hawaii. It's as though he was trying too hard to be clean-cut. I really can't get my head wrapped around the fact that the GI Blues soundtrack far out-sold Elvis is Back. Relative to later movie songs, "What's She Really Like?" is not bad.

The ladies would like to have The King sing this to them. I know I would.

A this point in his Hollywood career, Elvis was really into doing his best. And as such the G. I. Blues album stands as maybe the best of them all. As Pricilla once said: The movie songs were not really Elvis music. But, to me, I think he made many a poor movie song listenable, simply because it was him doing them. This song is far from the worst. It's like, sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't!

Love the slower outtakes, with the subtle and magnificent Elvis vibrato that no-one can match (Talk about her lips) … first heard a slower alternate version on Rare Elvis Vol 1, one of my very first outtake albums (late 80s - vinyl of course). Lyrics are a bit out… should be "She's even more than adorable" which rhymes with "moreable". It's the first song on my self made and titled "Elvis Dinner Party" album.

Elvis didn't like the songs available for GI Blues and this must be one of them. I love Elvis' singing and hard drums by DJ Fontana & Frank Bode on this one, but the song itself isn't good.

I thought the G.I. Blues album was pretty strong throughout, and this is one of the bright lights of the collection. Laid back, cool, and smooth reminiscent of Mr Dean Martin, makes this a very nice little song

The GI Blues version of Blue Suede Shoes is my favorite version ever.

Decent song, which reminds me of similar songs he did in the past or would in the future. "Shoppin' Around" was another good one RCA could have actually released as a single. "Didja Ever" and "Big Boots" are without a doubt the clunkers from the G.I. Blues soundtrack. The ultimate worst song on this album is "Blue Suede Shoes"; a song which shows just how bad Elvis had changed in delivering his vocal from the original back in 1956. "What's She Really Like".... good 4-Star Song.

At the time, a sort of new style for Elvis. Good song & performance.

Like this song very much and the soundtrack as well. Good performance in somewhat different style that proved he was growing as an overall performer. Three stars from me.

This is such a terrific song and it's from one of Elvis' very best movie soundtrack albums of the 1960's. The only song from "G.I. Blues" that I don't like is "Big Boots".

Breezy, yet solid track from the soundtrack LP and movie "G.I. Blues". Elvis shows he can sing pop as well as rock and roll and still make the song uniquely his. This is a case where Elvis took a good song (3 star song) and made it even better with his vocals (5 star vocals). 4 stars total.

Elvis does a good job with this Dean Martin style song. Nice & easy pop song. Outtakes are pretty good as well.
