About You Got It All

"You Got It All" is a song recorded by American band the Jets. It was released in 1986 as the fourth single from their debut studio album The Jets (1985). It was written by Rupert Holmes, most famous for the 1979 hit "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)", and produced by Don Powell (not to be confused with Slade's drummer) and David Rivkin. Holmes wrote it for his 10-year-old daughter Wendy but she never got to hear it become a hit, as prior to its release she died suddenly of an undiagnosed brain tumour. The song features the second youngest member of the group, then-13-year-old Elizabeth Wolfgramm, on lead vocals. "You Got It All" peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US in early 1987. The song also topped the adult contemporary chart for two weeks, and reached number two on the R&B chart, kept from the top spot by "Let's Wait Awhile" by Janet Jackson. It was also featured in the film Jaws: The Revenge as well as 1987 episodes of the daytime soap operas Another World, As the World Turns, Days of Our Lives, and General Hospital.

I, I was the game he would play
He brought the clouds to my day
Then like a ray of light
You came my way one night
Just one look and I knew
You would make everything clear
Make all the clouds disappear
Put all your fears to rest
Who do I love the best
Don't you know, don't you know?

You've got it all over him
You got me over him
Honey, it's true
There's just you
You must have been heaven-sent
Hearing me call, you went out on a limb

And you're all that he's not
Just look what I've got
'Cause you've got it all
Over him

No, don't let him worry you so
Once I met you, I let go
Oh you can surely see
You're so much more to me

Just one look and I knew
You would make everything clear
Make all the clouds disappear
You're better than all the rest
Who do I love the best
Don't you know, don't you know?

You've got it all over him
You got me over him
Honey, it's true
There's just you
You must have been heaven-sent
Hearing me call, you went out on a limb

And you're all that he's not
Just look what I've got
'Cause you've got it all
All over him

Honey, it's true
There's just you
You must have been heaven-sent
Hearing me call, you went out on a limb

And you're all that he's not
Just look what I've got
'Cause you've got it all
All over him

Honey, it's true
There's just you
You must have been heaven-sent
Hearing me call, you went out on a limb

And you're all that he's not
Just look what I've got
'Cause you've got it all
Over him
