Lyrics
When an irresistible force
Such as you
Meets an old immovable object like me
You can bet as sure as you live
Something gotta give
Something gotta give
Something gotta 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 gonna be kissed

So on guard
Who knows what the faiths have in store
From there fast mysterious sky
I'll try hard ignoring those lips 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
You'll find out
As sure as we live
Something's really got to give
