All Or Nothing: The Authorised Story of Steve Marriott: The Story of Steve Marriott
By Simon Spence

Authorised by the Marriott family

Steve Marriott, lead singer of the Small Faces and Humble Pie, had a voice coveted by Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey and David Bowie, amongst many others.

All or Nothing, Simon Spence’s oral history biography, is drawn from over 125 interviews with those who knew Marriott intimately: his wives, children, bandmates and closest friends, managers, record producers, record label bosses and his fellow musicians. Included are scores of people who have never told their story before.

From his child star beginnings to his battles with drug addiction and untimely death in a housefire, All or Nothing is a visceral and unflinching account of Steve Marriott’s extraordinary and often troubling life.

Lyrics

Lazy Sunday

Girl, hold my hand
Girl, I know you'll understand
That I've been waiting for a long, long time
Think every thing's gonna turn out fine

Hey, hey, it's alright
Hey, hey, it's alright
Hey, hey, my, my, my
Hey, hey, yeah, yeah

Girl, treat me kind
And girl, I think you'll find
That no one can love you better than me
Close your eyes and I think you'll see

Hey, hey, it's alright
Hey, hey, my, my, my
Hey, hey, come on children
Hey, hey, my, oh, my

When I think of what I've missed
It makes me laugh inside
All the girls that I ain't kissed
Just to keep my pride
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

So girl, look around
And girl, see what we've found
We've found something we can't fight
Don't think twice it'll be alright now

Hey, hey, it's alright
Hey, hey, I said my, my, my, yeah
Hey, hey, it's alright
Hey, yeah, hey, yeah, it's alright

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, yeah, hey, yeah, it's alright
Hey, ow, hey, ooh, it's alright
Hey, ooh, hey, yeah it's alright

Hey hey, c'mon shake your hand
Hey, hey, alright a promised land
Hey, hey, yeah woh, it's alright
Hey, hey, you know what I mean, it's alright
Well, I say alright alright, alright
