Edie Adams – That is All (I Adore Lucy Series Finale)

From the episode, “Lucy Meets the Moustache” of the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour. The song meant so much more because it was the last episode of the well-liked I Really like Lucy series. Lucy and Desi were also divorcing right after a long tumultuous marriage. They nonetheless loved every other quite considerably, but the issues that plagued the marriage couldn’t preserve them together. However, they remained buddies even after they married other people, and when Desi died, Lucy was devastated. So in a sense, this song was meaningful for them both. All that they could give every single other was really like….that’s all. The last lines of the show…. Lucy: “Honey, honey, I just wanted to support.” Ricky: “From now on, you can help me by not trying to help me. But thanks, anyway.” — That is All Lyrics & Music by Alan Brandt and Bob Haymes, 1952 [brackets indicate Edie Adams' variation on the song] I can only give you adore that lasts forever And a [the] promise to be near every time you call And the only heart I own for you and you alone That is all, that’s all I can only give you country walks in springtime And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall And a love whose burning light will warm the winter night That is all, that’s all There are those I am certain [who] have told you They would give you the world for a toy All I have are these arms to enfold you And a enjoy even time can’t destroy [And a really like time can by no means destroy] If you’re questioning what I’m asking in return, dear You will be glad to know that my demands are little Say it’s

    @weightfeather1 – sorry I missed that : / Great song no matter what the dates are around it all : )

  15. weightfeather1 says:

    @mkrobinson95 Yup! Look a little further down the comments list. I put in a date correction note and circumstances of Ernie’s accident a couple of weeks ago. Thanks!

  16. mkrobinson95 says:

    @weightfeather1 – to be precise, Kovac’s died over a year and half after this episode was filmed. The episode was filmed on 3/2/1960, Ball filed for divorce the day after, and Kovacs died on 1/13/1962. Still sad circumstances for everyone though …

  17. ashleymrs23 says:

    Michael Buble has his own version of this song. I love it!

  18. Einsatsgruppen says:

    @SoUrTheWolfGrrrl wasn’t it great? I wish we praised and sought after true classic talent like this these days – now its about image.

  19. crazypianolady says:

    @SoUrTheWolfGrrrl There is still talent out there, just not in the mainstream music which to me is very sad.

  20. cam11971 says:

    This is such a beautiful song but sad since it was the end for i love lucy and the end for lucy and desi’s marriage :(

  21. TheAQHAgal says:

    @bigkevcxza Yes. He died on March 3rd 1966.

  22. bigkevcxza says:

    didnt William Frawley die a few years after the show ended?

  23. weightfeather1 says:

    @TheStanbabe Just for the record, while headed home from a party early in the morning of January 13th, 1962, Ernie died when he crashed a Corvair station wagon into a telephone pole on a rain slicked corner. The party was at Milton Berle’s home: an adoption/cocktail party for their new baby. He’d had a long day, little food and a moderate amount of alcohol. He probably never knew that he’d been fatally injured. He was found near his wrecked car with his lighter and cigar, as if expecting help.

  24. weightfeather1 says:

    I love this song and especially Edie’s beautiful rendition, but I have a hard time watching this because I know the backstory about this episode, the changes that were about to happen in Lucy and Desi’s life and especially sad to me is the fact that Edie would be a widow only a few months later and Ernie would be gone.

  25. Endora1959 says:

    Thank you so much for uploading this!!! I use to always search for this scene, but never could find it. Just getting to see everybody’s ture personal expressions on the set and knowing it touched all the viewers hearts the same, as well. I knew Edie never recorded this. Somebody should have and/or should just release this on its own. This is so beautiful.
