FRANK BUTLER (Howard Keel):
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 (Howard Keel):
I went into the fight like a lion

MALE CHORUS:
But you came out like a lamb.

FRANK BUTLER (Howard Keel):
My defenses are down

MALE CHORUS:
She’s got you where she wants you
And you can’t escape no how

FRANK BUTLER (Howard Keel):
I could speak to my heart when it wakened

MALE CHORUS:
But my heart won’t listen now.

FRANK BUTLER (Howard Keel):
Like a toothless, clawless tiger,
Like an organ-grinder’s bear,

MALE CHORUS:
Like a knight without his armor,

FRANK BUTLER (Howard Keel):
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 (Howard Keel):
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
