I've Got You Under My Skin    (1936)

I've got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me
I've got you under my skin

I'd tried so not to give in
I said to myself, "This affair never will go so well"
But why should I try to resist when, baby, I know so well
I've got you under my skin

I'd sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of havin' you near
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats, repeats in my ear

"Don't you know, little fool, you never can win?
Use your mentality, wake up to reality"
But each time that I do just the thought of you makes me stop before I begin
'Cause I've got you under my skin

I would sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of havin' you near
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats, how it yells in my ear

"Don't you know, little fool, you never can win?
Why not use your mentality, step up, wake up to reality"
But each time I do just the thought of you makes me stop
Just before I begin 'cause I've got you under my skin
Yes, I've got you under my skin

Lyrics by Cole Porter.
