I HOPE YOU SING: IT'S NOW OR NEVER

'It’s Now or Never': This is one of my favorite songs sung by Elvis Presley. When I bought the SP (Single Play) record way back to my schooling days in Clifford School, Kuala Lipis, Pahang, Malaysia, my old buddy Tan Jing Ming used to request me playing this song over and over again in my late father’s shop (Bakauwali Tailor) after we were back from school. Well, I don’t have Elvis Presley’s voice but I did sing this song quite often during karaoke sessions with my ex-colleagues after ‘A Hard Day’s Night’. And I enjoyed singing this song together with Pak Ferry.

In plantation management, at times we have to make decision on the spot as we need to solve problems on site. Just like this Elvis’ song, we got to make decision ‘It’s Now or Never' as we have always been reminded, ‘A decision made is better than no decision made’. Since we are in top management, we cannot be indecisive at all. We have to make a wise decision at the right time. And the right time is NOW because ‘Tomorrow will be too late'.

Append below is Elvis Presley lyrics ‘It’s Now or Never’. Relax and sing along, my friends.

It's now or never, come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
It's now or never, my love won't wait.

When I first saw you, with your smile so tender
My heart was captured, my soul surrendered
I'd spend a lifetime, waiting for the right time
Now that your near, the time is here at last.

It's now or never, come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
It's now or never, my love won't wait.

Just like a willow, we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love, and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me, let your arms invite me
For who knows when, we'll meet again this way

It's now or never, come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling, be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
It's now or never, my love won't wait.

It's now or never, my love won't wait
It's now or never, my love won't wait
It's now or never, my love won't wait.

Pak Loh,

Thanks so much to bring back the memories that we had as a teams in SMG,"Its now or never " also is my favorite song until now, as you said as in a position of management has to make a decision quick, otherwise will be too late.

Thanks a lot for your concern and enjoy your life

I consider Elvis one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. Millions of people all over the world are his fans, including me and my old buddy Kong Peng. In the 60s , many people spotted Elvis hairstyle with long sideburns. KP was one of them. When we were in our teens, we really loved Elvis' songs. IT'S NOW or NEVER was the top favourite in Malaya at that time. It topped the charts for ten weeks. Elvis had a unique style of singing. He could sing fast like JAILHOUSE ROCK or slow like LOVE ME TENDER and the response from fans are equally fantastic. His movies were light comedy about love and fun and they
were enjoyable to watch. I still enjoy his movies now thru DVDs. I really like GI BLUES, BLUE HAWAII and JAILHOUSE ROCK. I am trying hard to get a DVD on KID GALAHAD which had beautiful songs like KING OF WHOLE WILD WORLD, I GOT LUCKY, HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS, RIDING ON THE RAINBOW.
Here's a joke.
A new priest went round to get to know his parisioners. 1st house, an old lady: You, Evlis Presley?
Priest: No, I'm the new priest. God bless you.
2nd house, an elderly lady: You, Elvis Presley?
P: No, I'm the new priest. GBU.
3rd house, a pretty young lady: Elvis Presley?
P: IT"S NOW OR NEVER, come hold me tight.........
