Allá en el rancho grande
Allá donde vívía
Habi'a una rancherita
Que alegre me decía
Que alegre me decía:
"Te voy hacer unos calzones
comos los que usa el ranchero
Los comenzo de lana
y los acabo de hierro."

There in the great ranch
There where she used to live
There used to be a cowgirl
Who joyfully used to tell me
Who joyfully used to tell me
"I'm going to make some trousers
like those which the cowboy wears
I'm starting them with wool
and I'm finishing them with iron."

All i can say is when Elvis is happy and joking around it make me feel so great i never get tired hearing Elvis like that he was incridible even when he was not serious.

A very funny song, by no means a comercial interpretation... he wasn't trying to sell a record, just having fun, you know... I personally like it :)

It shows how versatile a King of rock and roll can be. I do enjoy listening to such jamming. It's obvious to hear how Elvis himself enjoyed so much "fooling around" like he used to say. :p

Ridiculous choice for song of the day. Most people wont even know it. I feel so bad that my little sister will be crying in the chapel when she reads this. It hurts me. Get the hint?

Funny choice, it recalls the fun of hearing it for the first time!

Yes, very funny version. Maybe not good, but that´s not was he was looking for. It´s a typical jam, nothing else. But you can hear the joy in his voice, that makes me feel good. When Elvis and the band was jamming, to me the result would always be outstanding, because of the joy that Elvis seems to feel. I feel it too. "Got my mojo workin" and "I was born about 10.000 years ago", is performances just like this and they are both very, very good.

Just a "fun" jam session tune, certainly not meant to be serious or an artistic endeavor. It is silly enough to make you "laugh" & it's the little things like this that add "fun" & "humor" to our lives. Some of us need to laugh a lot more. Not every song is meant for a critique. Get the hint.

I listened to it once. That was enough.

Fabulous choice as b-side to 'Dominick". lol.

They found a place for this on the '70s box, but couldn't manage to squeeze in "Early Morning Rain." I guess this was more essential. LOL!

A fun Jam, which was added, to the "70s Box set-Walk a mile in my shoes", not because it was "Essential", but because it was "unreleased music" that, the fans, hadn't heard before, and this was part of the attraction, for buying, the boxset.

Yes a jam not to be taken seriously, and is just an insight into Elvis letting his hair down and having a bit of musical fun. I will give it 3 stars as I find it an entertaining diversion.

I would like to hear a studio version by ELVIS. I like this one though.

This is such a fun Elvis jam and performance and I've always enjoyed listening to it when I've listened to it. It's always great hearing Elvis sing in foreign languages too.

To my knowledge, Elvis sang in 5 different languages:English, German, Spanish, Italian & Hawaiian. I laughed my socks off when I heard this for the first time; still love it. Elvis had 5 star humor.

Elvis having great fun with a song not intended for release, but there is a market amongst fans to hear everything he sung no matter what the quality. I enjoy it for what it is, and the good feel factor it emits, nothing more nothing less, and so I don't get uptight about the whole thing.
