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

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.


The incomparable Shelly Manne plays the drums with fingers.

Tiree Niven

So talented and intelligent omggggg all on top of an excellent mellow voice wow

Gina Marie

Sorry, I should have mentioned that there was percussion also in this arrangement; I didn't mean to leave anything out. I DID want to say that Peggy Lee was a songwriter and an arranger, and she got her way more times than not because she was so smart and respected amongst her peers, and her "instincts" (meaning her knowledge of music), was the order of the day


Gina Marie has it correct. "Tapping into the rock’n’roll audience
Lee insisted on a stripped-down arrangement even when her producer Dave Cavanaugh and conductor Jack Marshall wanted it to be bigger and more complex. Lee was determined to project a cool yet earthy mood using only bass, percussion, finger snaps and her languorous voice. The finger snaps, sparse arrangement and satirical storytelling echoed the voice of the Beat Generation. Lee understood this new era and her place in it, and wanted to tap into the burgeoning rock’n’roll audience. She used Beat slang in lyrics such as “Julie, baby, you’re my flame” and “Daddy-o, don’t you dare”, as she swings in a perfect R&B tone over a West Coast “cool school”-inspired arrangement."

Miss Peggy Lee knew everything about music. Stories are legendary about her presence at a recording. She could tell when any instrumentalist was "off" or just not quite what she wanted. She could sing, write music and perform - a triple threat. This is so iconic that I cannot believe any other vocalist would even want to record it for fear of being mediocre!
