Lyrics
Something's got to give
Something's got to give
Something's got to give

When an irresistible force such as you
Meets an old immovable object like me
You can bet just as sure as you live

Something's got to give
Something's got to give
Something's got to give

When an irrepressible smile such as yours
Warms an old implacable heart such as mine

Don't say no, because I insist
Somewhere, somehow, someone's got to be kissed
So, en garde, who knows what the fates might have in store?

From their vast mysterious sky?
I'll try hard ignoring those lips that I adore

But how long can anyone try?
Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight it with all of our might
Chances are some heavenly star-spangled night
We'll find out just as sure as we live

Something's got to give
Something's got to give
Something's got to give

Fight fight fight it with all of your might
Chances are that some heavenly star-spangled night
We'll find out just as sure as we live

Something's got to give
Something's got to give
Something's got to give

Something's got to give
Something's got to give

Aw, let's tear it up!
