YOU TOOK ADVANTAGE OF ME From : Present Arms - 1928 (Lyrics by Lorenz Hart / Music by Richard Rodgers) Joyce Barbour Busby Berkeley VERSE 1 DOUGLAS: In the spring when the feeling was chronic And my caution was leaving you flat, I should have made use of the tonic Before you gave me that! A mental deficient you'll grade me. I've given you plenty of data. You came, you saw and you slayed me, And that-a is that-a! REFRAIN I'm a sentimental sap, that's all. What's the use of trying not to fall? I have no will, You've made your kill 'Cause you took advantage of me! I'm just like an apple on a bough And you're gonna shake me down somehow. So what's the use, You've cooked my goose 'Cause you took advantage of me! I'm so hot and bothered that I don't know My elbow from my ear. I suffer something awful each time you go And much worse when you're near. Here am I with all my bridges burned, Just a babe in arms where you're concerned, So lock the doors And call me yours 'Cause you took advantage of me. VERSE 2 EDNA: When a girl has the heart of a mother It must go to someone, of course; It can't be a sister or brother And so I loved my horse. But horses are frequently silly- Mine ran from the beach of Kailua And left me alone for a filly, So I-a picked you-a. REFRAIN I'm a sentimental sap, that's all. What's the use of trying not to fall? I have no will, You've made your kill 'Cause you took advantage of me! I'm just like an apple on a bough And you're gonna shake me down somehow. So what's the use, You've cooked my goose 'Cause you took advantage of me! I'm so hot and bothered that I don't know My elbow from my ear. I suffer something awful each time you go And much worse when you're near. Here am I with all my bridges burned, Just a babe in arms where you're concerned, So lock the doors And call me yours 'Cause you took advantage of me.
