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:
A BOY FOUND A DREAM
UPON A DISTANT SHORE,
A MAID
WITH A WAY
OF WHISP'RING,
SI SENOR.
EACH NIGHT
WHILE GUITARS
WOULD SOFTLY PLAY,
THE TUNE
SEEMED TO DANCE
AROUND THE WORDS
THAT HE'D SAY:

Chorus:
AMAPOLA,
MY PRETTY
LITTLE POPPY,
YOU'RE LIKE
THAT LOVELY FLOWER
SO SWEET AND HEAVENLY.
SINCE I FOUND YOU,
MY HEART IS WRAPPED
AROUND YOU
AND LOVING YOU,
IT SEEMS TO BEAT
A RHAPSODY.
AMAPOLA,
THE PRETTY
LITTLE POPPY
MUST COPY
ITS ENDEARING CHARM
FROM YOU.
AMAPOLA,
AMAPOLA,
HOW I LONG
TO HEAR YOU SAY,
I LOVE YOU.

verse 2:
THE BOY LEFT HIS LOVE
UPON A DISTANT SHORE
AND SAILED
FROM THE ONE
HIS ARMS
WERE LONGING FOR.
HE VOWED HE'D RETURN
ONE SUNNY DAY,
ONCE MORE TO REPEAT
WHAT HIS HEART
HAD TO SAY:

Chorus:
AMAPOLA,
MY PRETTY
LITTLE POPPY,
YOU'RE LIKE
THAT LOVELY FLOWER
SO SWEET AND HEAVENLY.
SINCE I FOUND YOU,
MY HEART IS WRAPPED
AROUND YOU
AND LOVING YOU,
IT SEEMS TO BEAT
A RHAPSODY.
AMAPOLA,
THE PRETTY
LITTLE POPPY
MUST COPY
ITS ENDEARING CHARM
FROM YOU.
AMAPOLA,
AMAPOLA,
HOW I LONG
TO HEAR YOU SAY,
I LOVE YOU.

Lyrics WHEN THE MOON
HANGS LOW IN NAPOLI,
THERE'S A HANDSOME GONDOLIER,
EVERY NIGHT
HE SINGS SO HAPPILY,
SO HIS LADY LOVE
CAN HEAR.
IN A MANNER
OH GRAVISSIMO,
HE REPEATS HIS SERENADE,
AND HIS HEART BEATS
SO FORTISSIMO,
WHEN SHE RAISES
HER VENETIAN SHADE.
CIRIBIRIBIN,
CIRIBIRIBIN,
CIRIBIRIBIN.

CIRIBIRIBIN,
HE WAITS FOR HER
EACH NIGHT
BENEATH HER BALCONY.
CIRIBIRIBIN,
HE BEGS
TO HOLD HER TIGHT,
BUT NO,
SHE WON'T AGREE.
CIRIBIRIBIN,
SHE THROWS A ROSE
AND BLOWS A KISS
FROM UP ABOVE,
CIRIBIRIBIN,
CIRIBIRIBIN,
CIRIBIRIBIN,
THEY'RE SO IN LOVE.

CIRIBIRIBIN,
CIRIBIRIBIN,
CIRIBIRIBIN,
THEY'RE SO IN LOVE.

Lyrics CRAZY RHYTHM,
HERE'S THE DOORWAY,
I'LL GO MY WAY,
YOU GO YOUR WAY,
CRAZY RHYTHM,
FROM NOW ON
WE'RE THROUGH.
HERE IS WHERE
WE HAVE A SHOWDOWN,
I'M TOO HIGH-HAT,
YOU'RE TOO LOW-DOWN,
CRAZY RHYTHM,
HERE'S GOODBYE
TO YOU!
THEY SAY THAT
WHEN A HIGH-BROW
MEETS A LOW-BROW
WALKIN' ALONG BROADWAY.
SOON THE HIGH-BROW,
HE HAS NO BROW,
AIN'T IT A SHAME?
AND YOU'RE TO BLAME.
WHAT'S THE USE
OF PROHIBITION?
YOU PRODUCE
THE SAME CONDITION.
CRAZY RHYTHM,
FROM NOW ON,
WE'RE THROUGH.
CRAZY RHYTHM,
I'VE GONE CRAZY
TOO.

Lyrics WHEN THE DAYS
ARE SAD AND LONG,
I JUST KEEP
WANDERING ON,
TO THE PLACE
I HEAR A CALL,
BECAUSE THE ONE I LOVE
IS THERE
BACK TO THE FIELDS
OF COTTON
TO HEAR
A CREOLE LOVE CALL.

1994 lyrics by Lorraine Feather:
A SUITCASE OPEN
ON THE FLOOR,
IN ROOM
ELEVEN EIGHTY FOUR,
YOUR PICTURE
LYING BY THE PHONE,
IT'S CLOSE TO MORNING
AND I'M LONELY
NO ONE AROUND TO CARE,
SO I STARE
AT THESE WALLS.

I KNOW SOME PEOPLE
HERE IN TOWN,
AND THEY WERE SHOWING ME
AROUND,
THEY KNEW
THE HAPPENING PLACE TO GO,
WE LAUGHED
AND GOT A LITTLE LOWDOWN.
BUT NOW
I WANT YOU NEAR
BABY,
HEAR MY LOVE CALL.

THE MOON IS MISTY
AND GRAY,
IT NEVER SEEMS
SO FAR AWAY.
I TOUCH YOU AGAIN,
BUT NOT TOMORROW.
THEN FACE TO FACE
WE'LL LIE,
GOODBYE,
JUST A MEMORY.

A SUITCASE OPEN
ON THE FLOOR,
IN ROOM
ELEVEN EIGHTY FOUR.
I KNOW
AS I LIE VERY STILL,
I DREAMT
YOUR SCENT
WAS ON THE PILLOW.
TOO SOON TO DISAPPEAR,
BABY,
HEAR MY LOVE CALL.

Lyrics [Male Vocal]:
DON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
NO! NO! NO!
DON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME
TILL I COME MARCHIN' HOME.
DON'T GO WALKIN' DOWN LOVER'S LANE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
NO! NO! NO!
DON'T GO WALKIN' DOWN LOVER'S LANE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME
TILL I COME MARCHIN' HOME

I JUST GOT WORD FROM A GUY
WHO HEARD FROM THE GUY
NEXT DOOR TO ME.
THE GIRL HE MET
JUST LOVES TO PET
AND IT FITS YOU TO A TEE.

SO, DON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME
TILL I COME MARCHIN' HOME.

Female Vocal]:
DON'T GIVE OUT WITH THOSE LIPS OF YOURS
TO ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,

WHEN YOU COME MARCHIN' HOME.
DON'T HOLD ANYONE ON YOUR KNEE,
YOU BETTER BE TRUE TO ME,
YOU BETTER BE TRUE TO ME,
YOU BETTER BE TRUE TO ME.
DON'T HOLD ANYONE ON YOUR KNEE,
YOU'RE GETTIN' THE THIRD DEGREE
WHEN YOU COME MARCHIN' HOME.

YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN
WHERE THERE IS NO PHONE
AND I CAN'T KEEP TABS ON YOU.
BE FAIR TO ME, .
I'LL GUARANTEE
THIS IS ONE THING THAT I'LL DO:

I WON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT YOU
TILL YOU COME MARCHIN' HOME.

[All]:
DON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
I KNOW THE APPLE TREE
IS RESERVED FOR YOU AND ME,
AND I'LL BE TRUE
TILL YOU COME MARCHIN' HOME.

Lyrics GOT A DATE WITH AN ANGEL,
GOT TO MEET HER AT SEVEN,

I'VE BEEN WAITING A LIFE TIME,
FOR THIS EVENING AT SEVEN,
GOT A DATE WITH AN ANGEL,
AND I'M ON MY WAY TO HEAVEN.

Lyrics verse:
AS WE EYE
THE BLUE HORIZON'S
BLEND,
EARTH AND SKY
APPEAR TO MEET
AND END,
BUT IT'S MERELY
AN ILLUSION.
LIKE YOUR HEART
AND MINE,
THERE'S IS NO
SWEET CONCLUSION.

Chorus:
I CAN SEE,
NO MATTER HOW NEAR
YOU'LL BE,
YOU'LL NEVER BELONG
TO ME,
BUT I CAN DREAM,
CAN'T I?
CAN'T I PRETEND
THAT I'M LOCKED
IN THE BEND
OF YOUR EMBRACE?
FOR DREAMS
ARE JUST LIKE WINE,
AND I AM DRUNK
WITH MINE.
I'M AWARE
MY HEART
IS A SAD AFFAIR,
THERE'S MUCH
DISILLUSION THERE,
BUT I CAN DREAM,
CAN'T I?
CAN'T I ADORE YOU
ALTHOUGH
WE ARE OCEANS APART?
I CAN'T MAKE YOU
OPEN YOUR HEART,
BUT I CAN DREAM,
CAN'T I?
