I've Got You Under My Skin Lyrics

Found On:


Stay (Faraway, So Close!) (1993)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"I've Got You Under My Skin"

"Scheduling was difficult and we recorded our vocals in different countries. I did mine with producer Phil Ramone in STS Studios, Dublin. I remember Sinatra's people visibly wincing when I changed the line, 'don't you know, you fool, you never can win' to 'you know, you old fool, you never can win.' They looked around at each other afterwards and said, 'Hey, he'll laugh...won't he?' We asked our friend Kevin Godley to direct [the video]. It was set up for one of Frank's favourite bars in Palm Springs. Kevin had the idea to capture on film the first encounter between Frank and me that day." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

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've tried so not to give in
I've said to myself this affair
Never gonna go so well
But why should I try to resist
When baby will I know so well
That I've got you under my skin

I would sacrifice anything come what might
For the sake of holding you near
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night
And repeats in the shouts in my ear
Don't you know, blue eyes, 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

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 in the shouts in my ear
Don't you know, you old 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
And I love you under my skin

(This song is a duet with Bono and Frank Sinatra and was written by Cole Porter)
