The Way You Make Me Feel
Paul Anka Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hey pretty baby with the high heels on
You give me fever like I've never known, yes
You're just a product of loneliness
I like the groove in your walk, your talk, your dress

I feel your fever from miles around
I'll pick you up and we'll paint the town
Because you kiss me baby and tell me twice
That you're the one for me

The way you make me feel
You're really turning me on
You knock me off of my feet
My lonely days are gone

I like the feelin' you're givin' me
Hold me baby, I'm in ecstasy
And I'll be workin' from nine to five
To buy you things to keep you by my side

And I've never felt so in love before
Promise me baby, you'll love me forevermore
I swear I'm keepin' you satisfied
'Cause you're the one for me

The way you make me feel
You're really turning me on
You knock me off of my feet
My lonely days are gone, gone, gone

I said oh, you make me feel good
Yes, you kiss me baby, I feel your fever
Oh baby, you make me feel so good
Pretty baby, just like I knew you could

Pretty baby, the way I knew you would
You make me feel so good




You make me feel so good, pretty baby
You're really turning me on
