Ringo Starr – Gave It All Up lyrics

By Richard Starkey and Vini Poncia


ME AND BILLY WERE A COUPLE OF KIDS,
NOBODY KNEW ABOUT THE THINGS THAT WE DID.
SHARING OUR TOYS AND RIDING OUR BIKES,
WE THOUGHT IT WOULD LAST FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES.

BUT WE GAVE IT ALL UP,
WE GAVE IT ALL UP,
WE GAVE IT ALL UP FOR SCHOOL.

THEN MY FAM'LY HAD TO MOVE OUT OF TOWN,
MADE SOME NEW FRIENDS AND STARTED HANGIN' AROUND.
STARTED STEALING LIKE THE REST OF THE GUYS,
MY FRIEND GOT CAUGHT, I SAW THE FEARS IN HIS EYES.

SO I GAVE IT ALL UP,
I GAVE IT ALL UP,
I GAVE IT ALL UP FOR LOVE.

SHE WAS EIGHTEEN AND I TOPPED HER BY ONE,
SHE SAID SHE'S HEARD ABOUT THE BAD THINGS I'VE DONE.
BUT SHE LOVED ME AND SHE JUST DIDN'T CARE,
BUT ONE NIGHT SHE NEEDED ME AND I WASN'T THERE.

SO SHE GAVE ME RIGHT UP, (gave me right up)
SHE GAVE ME RIGHT UP, (gave me right up)
SHE GAVE ME RIGHT UP FOR LOVE.

AS I LOOK BACK AND WONDER,
HAVE I WASTED MY TIME?
WILL I EVER LEARN THE MEANING OF LIFE,
WILL I LEARN IT IN TIME.

SO I SIT HERE WITH A COUPLE OF BEERS,
WONDERING HOW I'VE LASTED ALL OF THESE YEARS.
YOU'RE BESIDE ME AND IT'S FEELING SO RIGHT,
HOW I'D LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

'CAUSE I GAVE IT ALL UP, (gave it all up)
I GAVE IT ALL UP, (gave it all up)
I GAVE IT ALL UP FOR YOU.

GAVE IT ALL UP,
I GAVE IT ALL UP,
I GAVE IT ALL UP FOR YOU.

(All for you, gave it all up for you) GAVE IT ALL UP FOR YOU,
(All for you, gave it all up for you) SO I GAVE IT ALL UP FOR YOU,
(All for you, gave it all up for you) GAVE IT ALL UP FOR YOU,
(All for you, gave it all up for you) SO I GAVE IT ALL UP FOR YOU.
(All for you, gave it all up for you)

(All for you, gave it all up for you)
