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

 Wouldn't it be nice, to get on with me neighbours
But they make it very clear, they've got no room for ravers
They stop me from groovin', they bang on me wall
They're doing me crust in, it's no good at all, ah!

Lazy Sunday afternoon
I've got no mind to worry
Close my eyes and drift away

'Ere we all are, sitting in a rainbow
Gor blimey hello Mrs Jones, how's your Bert's lumbago? (mustn't grumble)
I'll sing you a song with no words and no tune
To sing in your khazi while you suss out the moon, oh yeah!

Lazy Sunday afternoon
I've got no mind to worry
Close my eyes and drift away

Roo dee doo dee doo, roo dee doo dee die day
Roo dee doo dee dum, roo dee doo dee doo dee

There's no one to hear me, there's nothing to say
And no one can stop me, from feeling this way, yeah

Lazy Sunday afternoon
I've got no mind to worry
Close my eyes and drift away

Lazy Sunday afternoon
I've got no mind to worry
Close my eyes and drift a-
Close my mind and drift away
Close my eyes and drift away
