Lyrics ALL MY LIFE
I'VE BEEN WAITING
FOR YOU.
MY WONDERFUL ONE,
I BEGUN LIVING
ALL MY LIFE.
ALL MY LOVE
HAS BEEN WAITING
FOR YOU.
MY LIFE IS SUBLIME,
NOW THAT I'M
GIVING ALL MY LOVE.
YOU SEEM SO LOVELY,
SO FAR ABOVE ME,
I'M ALMOST AFRAID
TO LOOK.
BUT I ADORE YOU,
I PLEDGE BEFORE YOU
A HEART
THAT'S AN OPEN BOOK.
ALL MY LIFE
HOLD ME CLOSE
TO YOUR HEART,
BUT ALL ELSE ABOVE
HOLD MY LOVE,
DARLING,
JUST HOLD MY LOVE.

Lyrics IT'S LOVE I'M AFTER,
NORTH, SOUTH, EAST AND WEST,
I HAVE GONE IN MY QUEST,
FAR, WIDE, HIGH AND LOW.
THIS ONE THING I KNOW,
IT'S LOVE I'M AFTER.
I DON'T WANT
TO BE A MILLIONAIRE,
THE ONLY THING ON EARTH
FOR WHICH I CARE
IS LOVE.

FOR LOVE AND LAUGHTER,
FOR LOVE AND LAUGHTER,
I GIVE ALL THAT I POSSES.
DON'T YOU KNOW
THE ONLY NAME
FOR HAPPINESS
IS LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

RICH MAN, POOR MAN,
BEGGAR MAN, THIEF,
FEEL THE WAY I DO
BECAUSE
EACH ONE OF THEM BELIEVES
HE'LL FIND SOMEBODY
LIKE YOU.

IT'S LOVE I'M AFTER,
LOVE I'M AFTER,
IT'S LOVE I'M AFTER.
IT MAY MAKE ME RISE
OR MAKE ME FALL,
BUT IT'S LOVE I'M AFTER,
AFTER ALL.

Lyrics verse:
I USED TO BE
THE APPLE OF YOUR EYE,
I HAD YOU WITH ME
EV'RY DAY.
BUT NOW
WHENEVER
YOU ARE PASSING BY
YOU'RE ALWAYS LOOKING
THE OTHER WAY.
IT'S LITTLE THINGS
LIKE THIS
THAT PROMPT ME TO SAY:

Chorus:
YOU TURNED THE TABLES ON ME,
AND NOW I'M FALLING FOR YOU.
YOU TURNED THE TABLES ON ME,
I CAN'T BELIEVE
THAT IT'S TRUE.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT
WHEN YOU BROUGHT
THE LOVELY PRESENTS
YOU BOUGHT
WHY HADN'T YOU
BROUGHT ME MORE,
BUT NOW
IF YOU'D COME
I'D WELCOME
ANYTHING FROM
THE FIVE
AND TEN CENT STORE.
YOU USED TO CALL ME
THE TOP,
YOU PUT ME UP
ON A THRONE.
YOU LET ME FALL
WITH A DROP
AND NOW
I'M OUT ON MY OWN.
BUT AFTER THINKING IT
OVER AND OVER,
I GOT
WHAT WAS COMING TO ME,
JUST LIKE THE STING
OF A BEE,
YOU TURNED THE TABLES ON ME.
