Edie Adams – That’s All (I Love Lucy Series Finale)

From the episode, “Lucy Meets the Moustache” of the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour. The song meant so much more since it was the last episode of the popular I Love Lucy series. Lucy and Desi were also divorcing after a long tumultuous marriage. They still loved each other very much, but the problems that plagued the marriage couldn’t keep them together. However, they remained friends 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 each other was love….that’s all. The last lines of the show…. Lucy: “Honey, honey, I just wanted to help.” Ricky: “From now on, you can help me by not trying to help me. But thanks, anyway.” — That’s All Lyrics & Music by Alan Brandt and Bob Haymes, 1952 [brackets indicate Edie Adams' variation on the song] I can only give you love that lasts forever And a [the] promise to be near each time you call And the only heart I own for you and you alone That’s 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’s all, that’s all There are those I am sure [who] have told you They would give you the world for a toy All I have are these arms to enfold you And a love even time can’t destroy [And a love time can never destroy] If you’re wondering what I’m asking in return, dear You’ll be glad to know that my demands are small Say it’s
