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.
