Something's Gotta Give
Sammy Davis Jr. Lyrics


When an irresistible force
Such as you
Meets an old immovable object like me
You can bet as sure as you live
Something gotta give
Something gotta give
Something gotta give

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

So on guard
Who knows what the faiths have in store
From there fast mysterious sky
I'll try hard ignoring those lips I adore
But how long can anyone try

Fight, fight, fight, fight
Fight it with all of our might
Chances are some heavenly star spangled night
You'll find out
As sure as we live
Something's really got to give

When an irresistible force such as you
Meets an old immovable object like me
You can bet just as sure as you live

Something's gotta give
Something's gotta give
Something's gotta give

When an irrepressible smile such as yours
Warms an old implacable heart such as mine
Don't say no because I insist

Somewhere, somehow
Someone's gotta be kissed

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

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

Something's gotta give
Something's gotta…

People don't realize that this is the best version.

One Army

Although this is excellent, I prefer the Sinatra version with Nelson Riddle arranging.

Winston Smith

Agreed

Darth Plato

It is awesome, but try the Bing Crosby version.

Arthur James Bouie

This guy was amazing, singer, dancer, musician and actor and even a Civil Rights activist !

Cameron Dunn

Sammy was the most talented performer ever he could anything

Julie Witt

Sammy sang alot of songs better than Sinatra.

Rick Lopez

Dane Logan Sinatra stuck up for Sammy as a black man when noone else would in the industry. How rude.

Ol Dino

Dane Logan

Kinda funny you say you hate Sinatra, yet you say he merely, "seems like a dick". Doesn't really warrant hate in my opinion. I'm biased though either way, I love Sinatra. (I love Dino and Sammy also.)

Dane Logan

I agree. I hate Sinatra actually- seemed like a dick. Sammy and Dino are my faves
