And the lyrics for it are printed out as well.
Recall Elvis' mention of Kay Starr as one of his favorite singers in the 1950's.
What [sic] is your favorite female singer right now?
Patti Page and Kay Starr.

In the summer of 1954, Pat and family moved from Magnolia Arkansas to Texarkana Arkansas. Pat began his junior year in Arkansas High School. It was during this time that he met a friend, Cheesie Nelson, who introduced him to the world of Country Music. Cheesie had become an Elvis Presley fan and introduced Elvis's early music to Pat. Cheesie could mimic Elvis and wanted Pat to play the guitar for him. Pat and Cheesie became very popular in Texarkana and performed at the local High Schools. It was in the late fall that Pat and Cheesie met Elvis, Scotty and Bill. Elvis and band had some car trouble south of Texarkana and was late in getting to their stage show on time. The promoter of the show knew of Pat and Cheesie and sent someone to get them to come to the stage show and keep the audience happy until Elvis and band could get there. Pat and Cheesie made it to the show and performed Elvis's songs until Elvis got to the show. When Elvis came in, he was amused at what he saw and heard. Elvis then thanked Pat and Cheesie for helping out and took over the show. At intermission, Elvis call Pat and Cheesie back stage to his dressing room and spent the intermission time visiting.
