Song of the Day #3,649: ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ – Frank Sinatra

How about a little Cole Porter to close out your weekend? And not just Cole Porter, but Cole Porter performed by Ol’ Blue Eyes, the Chairman of the Board, the one and only Frank Sinatra.

This version of ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin,’ the most famous, was orchestrated by Nelson Riddle and is notable for the rousing instrumental crescendo and trombone solo that kick off the song’s second minute.

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 tried so not to give in
I said to myself, this affair it never will go so well
But why should I try to resist when, baby, I know damn well
That 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 I do, just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
Beause I’ve got you under my skin

I would 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 how it yells in my ear

Don’t you know, you fool, ain’t no chance to win
Why not use your mentality, get up, wake up to reality
But each time I do, just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
Beause I’ve got you under my skin
And I like you under my skin
