“I’ve Got You Under My Skin…”- Ol’ Blue Eyes Educates Us on CAPS

If Frank Sinatra had CAPS, the lyrics to “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” might go like this:

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 disease must be Muckle-Wells.

But why should I try to resist since, as a baby, my hives would swell

I’ve got you under my skin?

I’d sacrifice anything come what may

For the sake of havin’ it clear

In spite of a corneal haze that comes two to three days

And something, something plugs my ears…

And there blows a little cool, the weather and wind…

Use your mentality, wake up to reality.

But each time that I do just the thought of you

Gives me a rash before I begin

‘Cause I’ve got you under my skin.

I’d sacrifice anything come what may

For the sake of havin’ it clear

In spite of a corneal haze that comes two to three days

And something, something plugs my ears…

And there blows a little cool, the weather and wind…

Use your mentality, wake up to reality.

But each time that I do just the thought of you

Gives me a rash before I begin

‘Cause I’ve got you under my skin.

Yes, I’ve got you under my skin.
