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 

Aww, let's tear it up !
