"You Do Something to Me" is a song written by Cole Porter. It is notable in that it was the first number in Porter's first fully integrated-book musical Fifty Million Frenchmen (1929). In the original production, the song was performed by Genevieve Tobin and William Gaxton, performing the roles of Looloo Carroll and Peter Forbes, respectively.

The song has been revived and rerecorded many times since, notably by Howard McGillen and Susan Powell in 1991. There are two verses and two rounds of the chorus. The song has been described as "a tender prequel to "Let's Do It, Let's Fall In Love", Porter's first popular song. The song has been recorded by Mario Lanza, Frank Sinatra, and Sinéad O'Connor. Ella Fitzgerald, the First Lady of Song, recorded this song on both her Cole Porter Songbook albums and on her Pablo classic, "Ella A Nice".
