MY DEFENCES ARE DOWN >From the Broadway Musical "Annie Get Your Gun" (1946) (Irving Berlin) Ray Middleton (Broadway Production) - 1946 Bill Johnson (London Stage Production) - 1947 Howard Keel (Film Soundtrack) - 1950 New World Show Orch. (vocal: The Linden Singers) - 1961 Bruce Yarnell (Broadway Revival) - 1966 Tom Wopat (Broadway Revival) - 1999 I've had my way with so many girls And it was lots of fun My system was to know many girls 'Twould keep me safe from one I find it can't be done My defences 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 defences 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 weakened But my heart won't listen now Like a toothless, clawless tiger Like an organ-grinder's bear Like a knight without his armour Like Samson without his hair My defences 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 Bein' miserable is gonna be fun (Your defences 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 weakened (But my heart won't listen now) Like a toothless, clawless tiger Like an organ-grinder's bear (Like a knight without his armour) Like Samson without his hair My defences 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) Bein' miserable is gonna be fun (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
