"Lay All Your Love On Me" as written by Benny Goran Bror Andersson, Bjoern K. Ulvaeus and Aleksej Anatolevich Kortnev....
I wasn't jealous before we met
Now every woman I see is a potential threat
And I'm possessive, it isn't nice
You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice
But now it isn't true
Now everything is new
And all I've learned has overturned
I beg of you

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little smalltalk, a smile and baby I was stuck
I still don't know what you've done with me
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily
I feel a kind of fear
When I don't have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
I beg you dear

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

I've had a few little love affairs
They didn't last very long and they've been pretty scarce
I used to think I was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible
'Cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all I've learned has overturned
What can I do

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song! I think it's a great piece, definitely one of my favorites from Abba. It has a somewhat dark, almost hypnotic (and frankly, rather sexy) feel to it, at least to me, sort of like a slower version of Voulez-Vous, only it's about the exact opposite - commitment to a single person as opposed to one-night stands with people you don't even know. Doesn't anyone else like this song?

    General Commenti love this song!
    it's about a relationship that people can actually relate to,...the darker side of a relationship where jealous and distrust rule, and the love is the prize at the end of the fight..

    General CommentLove it!! My favourite song in Mamma Mia the movie, without a doubt.
    I think it's just about being in a relationship and totally falling for the other person and getting jealous when others are interested
    'I wasn't jealous before we met
    Now every woman I see is a potential threat'
    And making sure each other is staying committed, and staying true to each other.
    Loveeee it :D
