Those aren't assonance, they're RHYME

Any word with the same "uh" sound you find in LOVE - that doesn't directly rhyme - would be assonant with LOVE.

Love, sup, bud,

I've got you under my skin

Can anyone help me out? Here are the lyrics to the great Cole Porter and Sinatra song. I need to find literary devices in this song and am at a blank. please help???
I've Got You Under My Skin
By Cole Porter

I've got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart
You're really a part of me
I've got you under my skin

I 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
That I've got you under my skin

I would sacrifice anything
Come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats, repeats in my ear

Don't you know you old 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'd sacrifice anything
Come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats and it yells in my ear

Don't you know you old fool
You never can win
Why not 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
'cause I've got you under my skin

anaphora

repetition of same word at beginning of successive sentences

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 07/03/2014 - 13:35
well

Lines 14 and 17 have end rhyme and so do 20 and 21, 22 and 23, 24 and 25 28 and 29
I'd sacrifice any thing repeats, wait actually that whole stanza repeats itself (chorus)>repetition
the whole thing in a way is an allegory (you can figure out what that means when you decipher the poem)
there is a whole lot of symbolism
there is a metaphor of a warning voice
there is also that motif (the main line)

literary devices

The poet has used Repetition in the following lines:
I've got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me

I would sacrifice anything
Come what might

He is so obsessed with his lover that it is conveyed through Repetition.
Both the lovers have become one and can never part, come what may!
That is the reason his love is so deep that he overlooks his conscience (warning voice) too which tells him that he will not win.
His love is too deep!

Assonance

Ahh so "long bong" and "Sean John" are examples of this.

How can ''SEAN JOHN'' be an example of assonance ?

where is the repeated vowel in ''SEAN JOHN'' ?

Sean is pronounced "Shaun"

Sean is pronounced "Shaun"

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 06/26/2013 - 10:57
Sean is pronounced "Shaun" but that's not the only way..

It can be pronounced as *Shaun" OR "Shon" so it would be DEPENDING on how you say it.

THERE'S NO IDIOM.

An Idiom is a figure of speech with a hidden meaning. E.G., Chill out, piece of cake, monkey business. Thanks.
