Sinatra And "Skin": 1966

video
taking a break from dispensaries :)
Frank with the Count Basie Band and the great Riddle arrangement
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 warnin' 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
