"You Took Advantage of Me" is a 1928 popular song composed
by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Lorenz Hart
for the musical Present Arms (1928),
where it was introduced by Joyce Barbour and Busby Berkeley
as the characters Edna Stevens and Douglas Atwell.

Present Arms is a Broadway musical comedy that opened April 26, 1928,
with music by Richard Rodgers, and lyrics by Lorenz Hart.
It is based off the book by Herbert Fields.
It was produced by Lew Fields with musical numbers stage
by Busby Berkeley.
It ran for 155 performances at the Lew Fields' Mansfield Theatre.

The show starred Charles King, Flora Le Breton and Busby Berkeley.
A man from Brooklyn is serving as a buck private in Pearl Harbor.
He flirts with an English Peer’s daughter; however,
she is being pursued by a German, who raises pineapples in Hawaii.
The Brooklynite pretends to be a Captain in order to make an impression,
but he is found out, booted out,
and loses out on the girl, until he proves himself in a shipwreck.


Present Arms


When a girl has the heart of a mother
It must go to someone of course
It can't be sister or brother
And so I love my horse
But horses are frequently silly
Mine ran from the beach of Okhala
And left me alone for a filly
So I have picked you up

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 I am 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.

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 I am 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
You took advantage of me
