Paul Gambaccini’s desert island death discs – All The Way – Sinatra

Thursday, 2 February 2012

 

How very much more appropriate for a funeral than My Way. Hats off to the Professor of Pop! Also to celebrant Karen Imms, who helped a family find this excellent song.

When somebody loves you
It’s no good unless he loves you all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you all the way

[Chorus:]
Taller than the tallest tree is
That’s how it’s got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue sea is
That’s how deep it goes if it’s real

When somebody needs you
It’s no good unless he needs you all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all the in-between years come what may

[Bridge:]
Who knows where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say
But if you’ll let me love you
It’s for sure I’m gonna love you all the way all the way
