All or Nothing at All

All or nothin’ at all
Half a love never appealed to me
If your heart, it never could yield to me
Then I’d rather, rather have nothin’ at all

I said all, nothin’ at all
If it’s love, there ain’t no in-between
Why begin then cry for somethin’ that might have been
No I’d rather, rather have nothin’ at all

Hey, please don’t bring your lips close to my cheek
Don’t you smile or I’ll be lost beyond recall
The kiss in your eyes, the touch of your hand makes me weak
And my heart, it may grow very dizzy and fall

And if I fell under the spell of your call
I would be, be caught in the undertow
Well, you see, I’ve got to say “No, no, no”
All or nothin’ at all

[instrumental]

And if I fell, fell under the spell of your call
Don’t you know I would be caught in the undertow?
So, you see, I just got to say “No, no”
All or nothin’ at all

All or nothin’ at all
