'Now that your picture's in the paper being rhythmically admired...'
'I don't wanna kiss you. I don't wanna touch...'
'Oh I just don't know where to begin...'

which one is your favourite?

'I don't wanna kiss you. I don't wanna touch...'

Excising this line as a 'stand-alone' hurts, because the stuff that follows is too good.

The song "No Action" is possibly the only song ever to use the word "Bakelite" in its lyrics. (In reference to the material that was used years and years ago to mold the telephone handset).

'Oh I just don't know where to begin...'

My first two Elvis concerts started with this line....such a great way to start a concert!

But I'll take the intro to "No Action" any day....such a Killer song!
