Tittelmelodien i den aller første virkelige rock’n’roll-filmen i farger fra 1956 var først en hit med mannen som framførte den i filmen, Little Richard. The Animals og Everly Brothers var blant de andre som spilte inn sine versjoner.

New Jordal Swingers lagde sin helt egne variant av "THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT", koblet inn i et medley med "Guitar Boogie", for innspilling og utgivelse på bandets andre album "Rock Machine" i 1974. Det ble med innspillingen, utgivelsen måtte vente 39 år, da NJS’ versjon av "THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT" omsider dukket opp på "Outtakes & Rariteter". Eigil Berg synger og får følge av Ivar Hovden og Odd-Erik Østerås i koret.

The Girl Can't Help It

(Bobby Troup)

She can't help it, the girl can't help it

She can't help it, the girl can't help it

 

If she walks by, the men folks get engrossed

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

If she winks her eye, the bread slice turn to toast

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it) 

She’s got a lot of what they call the most

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

 

The girl can't help it, she was born to please

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

And if she's got a figure made to squeeze

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

Won't you kindly be aware, the girl can't help it

(The girl can't help it)

 

If she mesmerizes, every mother's son

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

If she smiles, the beefsteak becomes well done

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

She makes grandpa feel like twenty one

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

 

The girl can't help it, she was born to please

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

And if I go to her upon my bended knees

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

Won't you kindly be aware, that I can't help it

(I can't help it)

 

‘cause I'm hoping, obviously

That some day, the answer will be

The girl can't help it, she's in love with me

 

(She can’t help it, the girl can’t help it)

 

If she mesmerizes, every mother's son

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

If she smiles, the beefsteak becomes well done

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

She makes grandpa feel like twenty one

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

 

The girl can't help it, she was born to please

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

And if I go to her upon my bended knees

(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

Won't you kindly be aware, that I can't help it

(I can't help it)

 

‘cause I'm hoping, obviously

That some day, the answer will be

The girl can't help it, she's in love with me
