Ive got you under my skin.
Ive got you deep in the heart of me.
So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me.
Ive got you under my skin.
Id 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
Ive got you under my skin?

Id 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 Ive got you under my skin.

(musical interlude)

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 Ive got you under my skin.
Yes, Ive got you under my skin.
