All or Nothing at All

Lyrics:Jack Lawrence
Music:Arthur Altman

The song was publishe 1939.

Frank Sinatra's 1939 recording of the song became a huge hit in 1943,
when it was reissued by Columbia Records
during the 1942-43 musicians' strike.
The record peaked in the Billboard top two.

In a 1944 interview, Sinatra said of the delayed success of the song,
"That was the song, a few days after Harry James and myself recorded it,
that gave us our walking papers out of the old Victor Hugo Cafe
(a major entertainment venue of the 1930s)
on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood.

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

All or nothin' at all
If it's love, there is no in-between
Why begin then cry for somethin' that might have been
No I'd rather have nothin' at all

Oh, 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
And so you see, I've got to say no, no
All or nothin' at all
