Notes

The instrumental 'When The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise' has been incorrectly listed as being 'Rocky Top' on some releases.

The songs 'When You Love An Alpha Delta' and 'We Are Alpha Delta Pis' have been incorrectly listed as being 'Your Life Has Just Begun' and 'Teardrops' on some releases.

Linda Thompson belonged to the Alpha Delta Pi sorority in college, and her school songs where she duets with Elvis are from that experience. In her book she called them "my silly Alpha Delta Pi sorority songs."

'When You Love An Alpha Delta':
When you love an Alpha Delta
You're a very special boy
When you love an Alpha Delta
Your heart is full of joy

She's the dearest girl, sincerest girl
Of all girls under the sun
When you love an Alpha Delta
Your life has just begun.

'We Are Alpha Delta Pis':
We are Alpha Delta Pis, and we love our sisters dearly
We are Alpha Delta Pis, and we grow much closer yearly
We will cherish all the memories that we gather while we’re here
For they bring back many thoughts and happy teardrops

Rah-de-do-dah

We are ADPis, rah-de-do-dah, we are ADPis, rah-de-do-dah
And we love our sisters dearly, rah-de-do-dah
We are ADPis, rah-de-do-dah, we are ADPis, rah-de-do-dah
And we grow much closer yearly, rah-de-do-dah

We will cherish all the memories that we gather while we’re here
For they bring back many thoughts and happy teardrops

Rah-de-do-dah

Rah-de-do, rah-de-do, dah-de-do-dah
