If y'all are in the mood for some Elvis Presley hip-shaking, then today is your lucky day.

Presley was arguably one of the greatest artists of all time. His legacy is riddled with #1 hits, chart-crushing albums, and stunning performances. 

In the vintage video below, Presley rocks his hips to the beat, while singing his hit song, "Don't Be Cruel". The sea of ladies surges as they scream for more from the musical icon. 

Presley released the single, "Don't Be Cruel", in 1956. After it's release, the song took Presley's musical career to new heights, becoming his first single to top the Billboard's Pop, Country and R&B charts. "Don't Be Cruel" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002, 38 years after Presley's passing. In 2004, Rolling Stone listed the song #197 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time

Elvis, we miss you!

Check out the awesome performance below! 

LYRICS BELOW

You know I can be found,
sitting home all alone,
If you can't come around,
at least please telephone.
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.

Baby, if I made you mad
for something I might have said,
Please, let's forget the past,
the future looks bright ahead,
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.

Don't stop thinking of me,
don't make me feel this way,
Come on over here and love me,
you know what I want you to say.
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
Why should we be apart?
I really love you baby, cross my heart.

Let's walk up to the preacher
and let us say I do,
Then you'll know you'll have me,
and I'll know that I'll have you,
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.

Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.
I don't want no other love,
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.
