Under My Skin - Big Band Lyrics

I've got you - under my skin -
I've got you - deep in the heart of me -
So deep in my heart -
You're really a part of me. -
I've got you - Under my skin -

I 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 darling,
I know so well -
I've got you - Under my skin -

I'd sacrifice anything, 'come what might,
for the sake of having you near,
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night, -
And repeats and repeats in my ear: -
Don't you know, little fool, - you never can win -
Use your mentality, - Wake up to reality." -

But each time I do, just the thought of you
makes me stop, before I begin,
'Cause I've got you - Under my skin.
