Words and Music by Davenport and Cooley
Donna Rose (Stewart), soprano

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 mornin’
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

Repeat Chorus

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 our flaming youth
Fever! I’m on fire
Fever, yea, 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 missus
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! ’til you sizzle
Oh, what a lovely way to burn
Oh, what a lovely way to burn
