Lyrics[edit | edit source]

When an irresistible force such as you
Meets an old immovable object like me
You can bet just as sure as you live
Somethin's gotta give
Somethin's gotta give
Somethin's gotta give

When an irrepressible smile such as yours
Warms an old implacable heart such as mine
Don't say no, 'cause I insist
Somewhere, somehow, someone's gonna get kissed

So, en garde, who knows what the fates have in store?
From their vast mysterious sky?
I'll try hard ignoring those lips I adore
But how long can anyone try?

Fight, fight, fight, fight it with all of our might
Chances are some heavenly star-spangled night
We'll find out as sure as we live
Somethin's gotta give
Somethin's gotta give
Somethin's gotta give
