need help with the name of a song and who it is by.
All I know is part of the lyrics, Take me in your arms and never let me go. I know it was from the 50's, it was the first album my dad ever bought my mom, my parents just celebrated their 50th anniversary.

More information...

"Make Love to Me" is a popular song.

The words and music were written by a larger team than normally is known to collaborate on a song: Bill Norvas, Allan Copeland, Leon Rappolo, Paul Mares, Ben Pollack, George Brunies, Mel Stitzel, and Walter Melrose.

The best-known version of the song was recorded by Jo Stafford, and in the year 1954 the #1 position on the Billboard chart went back and forth between this record and Doris Day's "Secret Love". On Cash Box magazine's charts, however, the song only reached #2. The same year, the song was covered in the United Kingdom by Alma Cogan.

The recording by Alma Cogan was released in 1954 by HMV as catalog number 7M 196. The flip side was "Said the Little Moment".

The song was also included on Anne Murray's tribute-to-the-fifties album, Croonin'.

Take me in your arms and never let me go
Whisper to me softly while the moon is low
Hold me close and tell me what I wanna know
Say it to me gently, let the sweet talk flow
Come a little closer, make love to me

Kiss me once again before we say good night
Take me in your lovin' arms and squeeze me tight
Put me in a mood so I can dream all night
Everybody's sleepin' so it's quite all right
Come a little closer, make love to me

When you're near, so help me, dear
Chills run up my spine
Don't you know I love you so?
I won't be happy till you're mine

When I'm in your arms you give my heart a treat
Everything about you is so doggone sweet
Ev'ry time we kiss you make my life complete
Baby doll, ya know ya swept me off my feet
Now's the time to tell you "Make love to me"

(Instrumental Break)

When I'm in your arms you give my heart a treat
Everything about you is so doggone sweet
Ev'ry time we kiss you make my life complete
Baby doll, ya know ya swept me off my feet
Now's the time to tell you "Hey, Baby make love to me"
