It's All Up to You
The Dells Lyrics


If I knew the words to say
I'd write you a letter
If I had the blues today
You could make me feel better

I tried to be independent but
I know I'm fooling myself
I know I can only be
Just what you make of me
There'll never be anyone else

I would always be happy
I would always be blue
I'll be your friend or your lover
Baby, it's all up to you

I will be your fancy
(I'll be your fancy)
And I will be your dancer
(I'll be your dancer)
And if you want romance
Just count on me
(Count on me, count on me)

And I will be your pleasure
(It's all up to you)
And you will be my treasure
(It's all up to you)
Just give me half a chance
And you will see, you will see

If you want some music tonight
I'll sing at your window
If you wanted colors of life
I'd bring you a rainbow

Honey, for what it's worth
When you get down to Earth
I need your love to be mine

I'll? wait for you
Do what I got to do
To make sure it works out all right

I would always be happy
I would always be blue
I'll be your friend or your lover
Baby, it's all up to you

I will be your fancy
(I'll be your fancy)
And I will be your dancer
(I'll be your dancer)
And if you want romance
Just count on me
(Count on me, count on me)

And I will be your pleasure
(It's all up to you)
And you will be my treasure
(It's all up to you)
Just give me half a chance
And you will see, you will see

I will be your fancy
(I'll be your fancy)
And I will be your dancer
(I'll be your dancer)
And if you want romance
Just count on me...

This is an amazing song by this amazing group of extraordinary men...I've never heard this song before, but I'll never forget it..."It's all up to you."

Mustafa Muhammad

Man, I'm soaking up all these wonderful comments like a sponge in water. I'm a old Chicago boy, DuSable High, 1964, and I knew Terry Collier from school. He co-wrote so many beautiful like this one, and another one of my Dell favorites, "I'd Rather Be With You." All this marvelous music the Dells have made over the years is filled with so much emotion and so many memories that well up in my eyes and roll down my cheeks.

Mustafa Muhammad oooh, this is a gem. What a song.
