Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

You do something to me,
Something that simply mystifies me.
Tell me why should it be
You have the power to hypnotize me?
Let me live 'neath your spell
Do, do that voodoo that you do so well.
For you do something to me
That nobody else can do.
Let me live 'neath your spell
Do, do that voodoo that you do so well.
For you do something to me
That nobody else can do,
That nobody else can do.

Notes

"You Do Something to Me" was the first musical number in Cole Porter's 1929 Broadway musical Fifty Million Frenchmen. It has been covered dozens of times, but Sinéad's version is probably inspired most by Marlene Dietrich's or Ella Fitzgerald's, both of whom she thanks in the liner notes to Am I Not Your Girl?.
