The song was published by Elvis Presley Music, Inc. It was written by Ruth Bachelor and Bob Roberts.[3][1]


Elvis Presley recorded "Where Do You Come From" on March 27, 1962 — during his March 26-28 soundtrack recordings for the Paramount motion picture Girls! Girls! Girls! at the Radio Recorders studio in Hollywood, California.[4]


The song was released on a single as a flip side to "Return to Sender" in October 1962.[5][6] "Where Do You Come From" peaked at number 99 on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Return to Sender" peaked at number 2.[7][8][9][10] The title "Return to Sender" was certified Gold in the United States for selling a million copies.[10]

Musical style and lyrics

Billboard in 1962 called the song a "croon ballad".[11]

According to the book Elvis Films FAQ, it is a "slow, aching ballad" that "starts a bit like "As Long As I Have You"."[3]

[It] intrigued the King. He swoons through this, almost hypnoitizing herself. Dudley Brooks's sublime piano adds to the song's mystical air."[3]
