i’ve got you under my skin lyrics – smokey robinson

(c. porter)

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.
