My Defenses Are Down Lyrics

My Defenses Are Down - The MGM Studio Orchestra/Adolph Deutsch/Howard Keel

Written by:Irving Berlin

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

 

Your defenses are down

She's got you where she wants you

And you can't escape no how

 

I could speak to my heart

When it wakened

 

But your 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

 

You 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 you must confess that you like it

 

 

Being miserable is gonna be fun
