About All Of My Life
This sweet ballad expresses the yearning for a nice life with the one that you love, a message that was quite poignant for a country towards the end of World War II. (Note the sweet little cottage on the cover of the sheet music.) This song was introduced (and made famous) by Kate Smith. Other recordings include those by Bing Crosby, Harry James, Sarah Vaughan and Tony Bennett.


I just want the right to love you
All of my life
Just the right to take care of you
All of my life

I just want the right to be near you
Always to be there
Sharing ev’ry care and strife

Life can be as simple as a nursery rhyme
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, all of the time

Long as I may live
I just want the right to give
All my love with all my heart for all of my life
