Heptune presents:

You Took Advantage of Me

    (Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart)

Transcribed from vocals by Bing Crosby and chorus, with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, n.d.,
From Bix "n" Bing with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, Academy Sound and Vision, CD AJA 5005.

I'm a sentimental sap, that's all,
What's the use of trying not to fall?
I have no will; oh, you 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,
Suffer something awful each time you go,
Much worse when you're near!

Here I am with all my bridges burned,
Just a babe in arms where you're concerned,
So lock the doors and call me,
'Cause you took advantage of me!
