    Lyrics

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
