All of Me

by Gerald Marks & Seymour Simons (1931)

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 lose 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?
