Irving BerlinMy Defenses Are Down

FRANK BUTLER: I've had my way with so many girls An' was lots of fun. My scheme was to know many girls To keep me safe from one I find it can be done. My defenses are down She's broken my resistance And I don't know where I am I went into the fight like a lion But I came out like a lamb. My defenses are down She's got me where she wants me And I can't escape no how I could speak to my heart when it wakened But my heart won't listen now. Like a toothless, clawless tiger, Like an organ-grinder's bear, Like a knight without his armor, Like Samson without his hair. My defenses are down I might as well surrender For the battle can't be won. But I must confess that I like it, So there's nothing to be done. Yes, I must confess that I like it Being miserable's gonna be fun MALE CHORUS: His defenses are down She's broken my resistance And he's in an awful jam. FRANK BUTLER: I went into the fight like a lion MALE CHORUS: But you came out like a lamb. FRANK BUTLER: My defenses are down MALE CHORUS: She's got you where she wants you And you can't escape no how FRANK BUTLER: I could speak to my heart when it wakened MALE CHORUS: But my heart won't listen now. FRANK BUTLER: Like a toothless, clawless tiger, Like an organ-grinder's bear, MALE CHORUS: Like a knight without his armor, FRANK BUTLER: Like Samson without his hair. My defenses are down FRANK BUTLER and MALE CHORUS: I might as well surrender For the battle can't be won. FRANK BUTLER: But I must confess that I like it, So there's nothing to be done. FRANK BUTLER and MALE CHORUS: Yes, I must confess that I like it Being miserable's gonna be fun
