"Something's Gotta Give" is a song broadcast on Radio New Vegas.


It was written by Johnny Mercer in 1954 for the film Daddy Long Legs. The version used in Fallout: New Vegas was recorded by Bing Crosby and Buddy Cole and his Trio in 1955 for Crosby's CBS radio show. It can be found on the 7-CD set The Bing Crosby CBS Radio Recordings (1954-56) and on Johnny Mercer: "The Dream's On Me," A Celebration of His Music.


When an irresistible force such as you
Meets an old immovable object like me
You can bet just as sure as you live
Somethin's gotta give
Somethin's gotta give
Somethin's gotta give

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

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

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



During the Dead Money quest Curtain Call at the Tampico, Dean Domino's hologram sings this song for a few moments, and the song is called "I Saw Her Yesterday".
