Ella Fitzgerald - I've Got You Under My Skin Lyrics




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.

[Musical interlude]

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.

Ella Fitzgerald I've Got You Under My Skin Comments
  1. Shazi Dost

    Lyrics were lyrics, and music was low, it made a lot of sence

  2. Herbert Wells

    This is five zillion times better than the Frank Sinatra version. Ella is always impeccable.

  3. Sandú Brus - Songs from my guitar and my heart

    exceptional , awesome and nobody can repeat this performance in this quality. It is one of my favorite jazz songs !

  4. Michael L. Morehead

    Ella would make anything sound great, but the accompaniment in this is exquisite. The trumpets/horns sound as if there are straight mutes on them in the first go round, and they are pulled off for her second time through the bridge. Magnifique.

  5. Sylvester Gause

    Ok 1st I apologise for my ignorance...but who sang the original version of this song? I thought it was Frankie...but now I'm not sure since I see Ella's got a version too. Or did they both cover an even older version?

    Paul DeRocco

    Virginia Bruce in the 1936 movie Born to Dance. Georges and Jalna Toregas also danced to the number as an instrumental in that movie.

  6. Erik Ricardo Boscolo

    And it's still brilliant

  7. FRANCOMME Joël

    Ella : pour moi la plus grande...

  8. Eligah Murray Jr

    She was simply amazing. Her voice mesmerizes me.

  9. Craig Tucker

    I was looking for this song after watching an undertale comic.


    "Sooner or later you're gonna be mine" from Vade. 👍

    Wow... dude copy and pastes the songs lyrics for those who care to inquire and gets 2 likes. Gotta say I feel pretty pitiful for you, chap!!

    Great version of an incredibly well written song, but there's really no need for this post, as the damned lyrics are available above!

    Sublime :-)

  16. David LeBlanc

    What a magnificent instrument her voice was. I think there is nothing she could not do if she wanted to sing it.

    Not for nothing Mel Torme called her the greatest singer in the world.

  17. Ryan Kuhns jackal

    NOBODY sings like Ella. She was a genius without peers.

    Celestial Squid

    Well, you’re 20 or so years old now. As for me I’m, funnily enough, 17 years old.
