I've Got You Under My Skin
Stan Getz 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 down 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, you 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 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?
And each time I do just the thought of you
Makes me stop just before I begin
Cause I've got you under my skin.
And I like you under my skin.

I’m 83 as I write this and have followed his career since being a very young teenager buying his recordings to the end. Enough for a down payment on a house but I made the right choice. There’s some joke about God wanting
to play tenor until he heard Stan then changed his mind.

You're absolutely right !!!!!!! Getz was nearly God !!!!! but his younger period was the best ever !!!!

Listening to Stan over the years is such a pleasure.  I especially like early Stan   ...  his tone was always wonderful but his edge was different and had more swagger and less sophistication .. perhaps I like this song better because it reminds me of my youth in the 50's when my main concern in life was running out of Wildroot Cream Oil for my DA.
