"I've got you under my skin" as written by and Cole 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 having 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 having 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

    General CommentI absolutele love this song! Bono seems to be able to swing as well as rock!

    Has anyone seen the saturday live show about this song? It's really funny, Bono (not real Bono) comes up to Frank Sinatra (also not THE Frank S.) and starts talking about how he's written a lovely song about politics, war and the meaning of life etc.. Then Sinatra quickly says: Just do under my skin and starts counting 'one two three I've got you....' And Bono can't do anything but sing along and looks a bit swept away!
