Fever
Peggy Lee Lyrics


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 day time
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
And you know I'm gonna treat me right
You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the mornin'
Fever all through the night

Everybody's got the fever
That is somethin' you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long time 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 givest fever when we kisseth
Fever with thy 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"
"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 really 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

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 (you give me fever) when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight (you give me fever)
Fever in the mornin'
Fever all through the night

Sun lights up the day time
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
'Cause I know you're gonna treat me right
You give me fever (You give me fever) when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight (You give me fever)
Fever in the mornin'
Fever all through the night (Wow!)

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

Baby, turn on your love light (Yeah, yeah)
Let it shine on me (Yeah, yeah)
Well, baby, turn on your love light (Yeah, yeah)
And let it shine on me (Yeah, yeah)
Well, just a little bit higher (Yeah, yeah)
And just a little bit brighter, baby (Yeah, yeah)
Ow!

You give me fever (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
You give me fever (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
You give me fever (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
You give me fever

Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade
We give you fever when we kiss you
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

Peggy Lee made this arrangement. Her record producers thought she was crazy to have only a bassist and fingersnaps to accompany her, but she stuck to her guns, and the result was this classic recording.

Very much like Billy Joel's song "The Longest Time". Vocals, bass and percussion. Nothing else.

@pyropulse @TheRageMaker "Two years later, Peggy Lee released her version, which is a very significant rewrite. A highly successful songwriter herself, she was adhering to one of the oldest traditions of the blues, in which performers didn’t so much sing one another’s songs as come up with their own variations on the basic template.

Lee’s 1958 “Fever” retains the finger-snapping rhythm from Willie John but changes virtually everything else, dropping the horns (and all the other instruments except drums and bass) and significantly altering the lyrics. Of the five stanzas in Lee’s record, only the first two are in the Willie John record. She also added an interlude (“everybody’s got the fever . . .”) that led into the next lines (the sections about “Romeo and Juliet” and “Captain Smith and Pocahontas”) and—finally—gave the song a proper ending (“what a lovely way to burn”)."-> Wall Street Journal https://www.wsj.com/articles/its-time-to-retire-fever-1479505517

@C Fever by Peggy Lee charted and hit number 8 on Billboard charts in July of 1958. We can't change the past. Things have changed for the better in the last half century and will continue to do so. Check out the artists of the black owned and operated Motown records of Detroit. In the '60s they harvested young black talent from the streets and housing projects, polished them for the stage and cashed in big time. Predators come in all sizes, shapes and colors.
