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 warnin' 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 the 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
