BILLY
Verse #1
“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?”

Verse #2
“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.”
(laughs) “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.”
(laughs) “Yes, I’ve got you under my skin.”
