Peggy Lee - Fever
Tekst en muziek: Eddie Cooley en Otis Blackwell alias John Davenport
(1958)







Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever, that’s so hard to bear



You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night



Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
And you know I’m gonna treat you right



You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night



Everybody’s got the fever
That is something you all know
Fever isn’t such a new thing
Fever started long ago



Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her, he said:
“Julie baby, you’re my flame”



“Thou giveth fever, when we kisseth
Fever with thy flaming youth
Fever, I’m afire
Fever yeah, I burn forsooth”



Captain Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
When her Daddy tried to kill him, she said:
“Daddy, oh don’t you dare”



He gives me fever with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever, I’m his misses, oh
Daddy won’t you treat him right



Now you’ve listened to my story
Here’s the point that I have made
Chicks were born to give you fever
Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade



They give you fever when you kiss them
Fever if you live and learn
Fever till you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
