All Or Nothing At All lyrics

Jack lawrence / arthur altman

All or nothing at all
Half love never appealled to me
If your heart never could yield to me
Then Id rather have nothing at all

All or nothing at all
If its love there is no in between
Why begin, then cry for something that might have been
No, I rather have nothing at all
But, please, dont bring your lips so close to my cheek
Dont smile or Ill be lost beyond recall
The kiss in your eyes, the touch of your hand makes me weak
And my heart may grow dizzy and fall
And if I fell under the spell of your call
I would be caught in the undertow
So, you see, Ive got to say
No, no
All or nothing at all
