Lyrics YOU TOOK MY KISSES
AND ALL MY LOVE,
YOU TAUGHT ME HOW TO CARE.
AM I TO BE JUST REMNANT
OF A ONE SIDE LOVE AFFAIR?
ALL YOU TOOK
I GLADLY GAVE,
THERE IS NOTHING
LEFT FOR ME TO SAVE.

ALL OF ME,
WHY NOT TAKE
ALL OF ME,
CAN'T YOU SEE
I'M NO GOOD WITHOUT YOU.
TAKE MY LIPS,
I WANT TO LOOSE THEM,
TAKE MY ARMS,
I'LL NEVER USE THEM.
YOUR GOODBYE
LEFT ME WITH EYES THAT CRY,
HOW CAN I GO ON DEAR
WITHOUT YOU?
YOU TOOK THE PART
THAT ONCE WAS MY HEART,
SO WHY NOT
TAKE ALL OF ME.

Lyrics verse - added in year 2000:
YOU KNOW THE GAME OF LOVE
SO THE FLAME OF LOVE
NEVER BURNS YOU,
NO PASSION CONCERNS YOU,
NO VIOLINS PLAY.
BUT ME,
I LOSE CONTROL
OF MY HEART
WHEN I'M NEAR YOU.
THAT'S WHY I FEAR YOU
AND TURN AWAY.
I NEED
A LOVE THAT'S TRUE,
I WISH
IT COULD BE YOU,
I KNOW
IT SHOULD BE YOU
AND SO I SAY:

Chorus:
ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL!
HALF A LOVE
NEVER APPEALED TO ME.
IF YOUR HEART
NEVER COULD YIELD TO ME,
THEN I'D RATHER
HAVE NOTHING AT ALL!
ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL!
IF IT'S LOVE,
THERE IS NO IN BETWEEN.
WHY BEGIN,
THEN CRY FOR SOMETHING
THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN.
NO, I'D RATHER
HAVE NOTHING AT ALL.

BUT, PLEASE,
DON'T BRING YOUR LIPS
SO CLOSE TO MY CHEEK.
DON'T SMILE,
OR I'LL 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,
I'VE GOT TO SAY:
NO!
NO!
ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL!

Lyrics verse 1:
YOUR EYES ONCE TOLD ME A STORY
I BUILT MY CASTLES ON AIR.
LIFE WAS SOON DIMMED
OF ITS GLORY,
I LOVED
BUT YOU CEASED TO CARE.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

verse 2:
YOU BROKE THE NEWS TO ME
KINDLY,
I CAN'T SAY
YOU WERE NOT FAIR.
YET, JUST BECAUSE I LOVED
BLINDLY,
I HAVE THE BURDEN TO BEAR.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

Lyrics THE BEST OF EVERYTHING.
THAT'S WHAT I WISH
YOU ALL.
THE BEST OF EVERYTHING.
A REMBRANDT
ON YOUR WALL.
A YACHT
THAT WINS YOU CUPS.
SKATEBOARDS
WITH STYLE AND SPEED.
SHOW DOGS
OR LOVING PUPS.
THE PRIDE OF THE POUND
OR PEDIGREED.
I HOPE YOU WIN THAT PRIZE,
PASS THAT BLUE RIBBON TEST,
I HOPE YOUR GOOD
KEEPS GETTING BETTER
TILL YOUR BETTER'S
BEST.
WITH EVERY WINE YOU TASTE,
WITH EVERY SONG YOU SING,
BY NOW
YOU'VE MIGHT HAVE GUESSED,
I HOPE YOU GET
THE BEST OF EVERYTHING.

Lyrics HEY NOW,
TAKE A
MIP MACK MOP,
AND A
BRIM BRAM BROOM,
AND KLIM KLAM
CLEAN UP
THE RIM RAM
ROOM
BECAUSE YOUR
BIM BAM BABY
IS COMING HOME
TONIGHT.
GET MY
SLIM SLAM SLIPPERS,
AND MY
EASY CHAIR,
RUN YOUR
FLIM FLAM FINGERS
THROUGH MY
GREASY HAIR,
THEN KISS ME,
BABY,
LET ME
HOLD YOU TIGHT.
BEEN NORTH
AND SOUTH
AND EAST
AND WEST,
BUT EVEN
A HONEY BEE
NEEDS SOME REST.
WHEN I GET
MY JACKET
AND TROUSERS PRESSED,
I'LL FOLLOW
THE SWALLOW
RIGHT BACK
TO MY NEST.
DON'T YOU
WIM WAM WORRY
IF MY TRAIN
IS LATE,
ON THE
SHIM SHAM SHUTTLE
ON A
FRIM FRAM FREIGHT,
'CAUSE YOUR
BIM BAM BABY
IS COMING HOME
TONIGHT.

Lyrics verse:
LIFE'S DREARY
FOR ME,
DAYS SEEM
TO BE LONG
AS YEARS.
I LOOK
FOR THE SUN,
BUT I SEE
NONE
THROUGH MY TEARS.
YOUR HEART
MUST BE
LIKE A STONE
TO LEAVE ME
HERE
ALL ALONE
WHEN YOU COULD
MAKE MY LIFE
WORTH LIVING
BY SIMPLY TAKING
WHAT I'M SET
ON GIVING.

Chorus:
MY HEART IS SAD
AND LONELY,
FOR YOU
I SIGH,
FOR YOU,
DEAR, ONLY.
WHY HAVEN'T YOU
SEEN IT?
I'M ALL FOR YOU,
BODY AND SOUL!
I SPEND MY DAYS
IN LONGING
AND WOND'RING WHY
IT'S ME
YOU'RE WRONGING.
I TELL YOU
I MEAN IT,
I'M ALL FOR YOU,
BODY AND SOUL!

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT,
IT'S HARD
TO CONCEIVE IT
THAT YOU'D TURN AWAY
ROMANCE.
ARE YOU PRETENDING?
IT LOOKS LIKE
THE ENDING
UNLESS I COULD HAVE
ONE MORE CHANCE
TO PROVE, DEAR,

MY LIFE A WRECK
YOU'RE MAKING,
YOU KNOW I'M YOURS
FOR JUST THE TAKING
I'D GLADLY SURRENDER
MYSELF TO YOU,
BODY AND SOUL!

Lyrics BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!
DANGEROUS RHYTHM!

IT'S SOMETHING DARING,
THE CONTINENTAL,
A WAY OF DANCING
THAT'S REALLY ULTRA NEW
IT'S VERY SUBTLE,
THE CONTINENTAL,
BECAUSE IT DOES
WHAT YOU WANT IT TO DO.
IT HAS A PASSION,
THE CONTINENTAL,
AN INVITATION
TO MOONLIGHT AND ROMANCE
IT'S QUITE THE FASHION,
THE CONTINENTAL,
BECAUSE YOU TELL OF YOUR LOVE
WHILE YOU DANCE.
YOUR LIPS WHISPER,
SO TENDERLY,
HER EYES ANSWER YOUR SONG.
TWO BODIES SWAYING
THE CONTINENTAL,
AND YOU ARE SAYING
JUST WHAT YOU'RE THINKING OF
SO KEEP ON DANCING
THE CONTINENTAL,
FOR IT'S THE SONG OF ROMANCE
AND LOVE.

YOU KISS,
WHILE YOU'RE DANCING
IT'S CONTINENTAL,
IT'S CONTINENTAL.
YOU SING,
WHILE YOU'RE DANCING
YOUR VOICE IS GENTLE,
AND SENTIMENTAL.
YOU'LL KNOW,
BEFORE THE DANCE IS THROUGH
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH HER
AND SHE'S IN LOVE WITH YOU.
YOU'LL FIND,
WHILE YOU'RE DANCING,
THAT THERE'S A RHYTHM
IN YOUR HEART AND SOUL
A CERTAIN RHYTHM
THAT YOU CAN'T CONTROL,
AND YOU WILL DO
THE CONTINENTAL
ALL THE TIME.

BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!
DANGEROUS RHYTHM!

Lyrics YOU MADE ME THINK
YOU CARED FOR ME
AND I BELIEVED IN YOU,
YOU TOLD ME
THINGS YOU NEVER MEANT
AND MADE ME THINK
THEM TRUE.
I GAMBLED IN THE GAME OF LIFE
I PLAYED MY HEART AND LOST,
I'M NOW A WRECK UPON LIFE'S SEA,
ALONE I PAY THE COST.

YOU MADE ME WHAT I AM TODAY,
I HOPE YOU'RE SATISFIED,
YOU DRAGGED
AND DRAGGED ME DOWN
UNTIL THE SOUL WITHIN ME DIED.
YOU SHATTERED
EACH AND EVERY DREAM,
FOOLED ME RIGHT FROM THE START,
AND THOUGH YOU'RE NOT TRUE,
MAY GOD BLESS YOU,
THAT'S THE CURSE
OF AN ACHING HEART.

Lyrics DON'T WORRY ABOUT ME,
I'LL GET ALONG.
FORGET ABOUT ME,
BE HAPPY MY LOVE.
LET'S SAY
THAT OUR LITTLE SHOW
IS OVER
AND SO
THE STORY ENDS,
WHY NOT CALL IT A DAY,
THE SENSIBLE WAY
AND STILL BE FRIENDS.
LOOK OUT FOR YOURSELF,
SHOULD BE THE RULE.
GIVE YOUR HEART AND YOUR LOVE
TO WHOMEVER YOU LOVE,
DON'T BE A FOOL.
DARLING,
WHY SHOULD YOU CLING
TO SOME FOOLISH THING
THAT USED TO BE?
IF YOU CAN FORGET,
DON'T WORRY ABOUT ME!

Lyrics YESTERDAY YOU CAME MY WAY
AND WHEN YOU SMILED AT ME,
IN MY HEART I FELT A THRILL.
YOU SEE,
THAT IT WAS LOVE AT SIGHT,
AND I WAS RIGHT
TO LOVE YOU AS I DO.
STILL I NEVER DREAMED
THAT YOU COULD LOVE ME TOO.

YOUR EYES OF BLUE
YOUR KISSES TOO,
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT THEY COULD DO,
I CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.
YOU'RE TELLING EVERYONE I KNOW,
I'M ON YOUR MIND
EACH PLACE YOU GO,
THEY CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.

I HAVE ALWAYS PLACED YOU
FAR ABOVE ME,
I JUST CAN'T IMAGINE
THAT YOU LOVE ME
AND AFTER ALL
IS SAID AND DONE,
TO THINK
THAT I'M THE LUCKY ONE,
I CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.

SKIES ARE GRAY,
I'M BLUE EACH DAY
WHEN YOU ARE NOT AROUND.
EV'RYTHING GOES WRONG,
MY DEAR, I'VE FOUND.
BUT WHEN YOU'RE BY MY SIDE,
I FILL WITH PRIDE
FOR I'M SO PROUD OF YOU,
IT ALL SEEMS TOO GOOD TO ME
TO ALL BE TRUE.

YOUR EYES OF BLUE
YOUR KISSES TOO,
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT THEY COULD DO,
I CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.
YOU'RE TELLING EVERYONE I KNOW,
I'M ON YOUR MIND
EACH PLACE YOU GO,
THEY CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH ME.

Lyrics verse:
I BEHELD HER
AND WAS CONQUERED
AT THE START,
AND PLACED HER
ON A PEDESTAL APART:
I PLANNED
THE LITTLE HIDEAWAY
THAT WE WOULD SHARE
SOME DAY.
WHEN I MET HER
I UNFOLDED
ALL MY DREAM,
AND TOLD HER
HOW SHE'D FIT
INTO MY SCHEME
OF WHAT BLISS IS.
THEN THE BLOW CAME,
WHEN SHE GAVE HER NAME
AS MISSUS.

Choruses:
I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO CHANGE MY PLAN
I SHOULD HAVE REALIZED
THERE'D BE ANOTHER MAN!
I OVERLOOKED THAT POINT
COMPLETELY
UNTIL THE BIG AFFAIR
BEGAN
BEFORE I KNEW
WHERE I WAS AT
I FOUND MYSELF
UPON THE SHELF,
AND THAT WAS THAT.
I TRIED
TO REACH THE MOON
BUT WHEN I GOT THERE,
ALL THAT I COULD GET
WAS THE AIR,
MY FEET ARE BACK
UPON THE GROUND
I'VE LOST
THE ONE GIRL
I FOUND.

I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO CHANGE MY PLAN
I SHOULD HAVE REALIZED
THERE'D BE ANOTHER MAN!
WHY DID I BUY
THOSE BLUE PAJAMAS
BEFORE THE BIG AFFAIR
BEGAN?
MY BOILING POINT
IS MUCH TOO LOW
FOR ME TO TRY
TO BE A SLY
LOTHARIO.
I'LL CRAWL RIGHT BACK
INTO MY SHELL,
DWELLING
IN MY PERSONAL HELL.
I'LL HAVE TO CHANGE MY PLAN
AROUND
I'VE LOST THE ONE GIRL
I FOUND.

Lyrics verse:
I'LL ADMIT
AN OCCASIONAL AFFAIR,
BUT SOMEHOW
THEY ALL MADE ME FEEL
THAT LOVE WASN'T THERE,
MY HEART WAS AWARE
THE WHOLE THING
WASN'T REAL.
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT WAS WRONG
UNTIL THE DAY
YOU CAME ALONG.

Chorus:
I HADN'T ANYONE TILL YOU
I WAS A LONELY ONE
TILL YOU.
I USED TO LIE AWAKE
AND WONDER
IF THERE COULD BE
A SOMEONE
IN THE WIDE WORLD
JUST MADE FOR ME.
NOW I SEE
I HAD TO SAVE MY LOVE
FOR YOU.
I NEVER GAVE MY LOVE
TILL YOU.
AND THROUGH
MY LONELY HEART
DEMANDING IT,
CUPID
TOOK A HAND
IN IT.
I HADN'T ANYONE TILL YOU.
