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 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.

EV'RYBODY'S
GOT THE FEVER,
THAT IS SOMETHING
YOU ALL KNOW,
FEVER
ISN'T SUCH
A NEW THING,
FEVER
STARTED LONG AGO.

YOU GIVE ME
FEVER
WHEN YOU KISS ME,
FEVER
WHEN YOU HOLD ME
TIGHT,
FEVER
IN THE MORNING,
FEVER
ALL THROUGH
THE NIGHT.

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 AFIRE,
FEVER,
YEA I BURN
FORSOOTH.

CAPTAIN SMITH
AND POCAHANTAS
HAD A VERY MAD
AFFAIR.
WHEN HER DADDY
TRIED TO KILL HIM,
SHE SAID,
DADDY-O
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 -
TILL YOU SIZZLE,
WHAT A LOVELY WAY
TO BURN.

Lyrics IT'S GONNA RAIN ANY MINUTE,
THERE'S NOT A STAR IN SIGHT
THINGS ARE MIGHTY SLOW,
I GUESS I'LL CLOSE UP SHOP
AND GO HOME TO JOE.
I KNOW
HE WON'T BE GLAD TO SEE ME
WITHOUT A PENNY TO THE GOOD,
BUT I'M NOT CARING MUCH
WHAT HAPPENS,
I DID THE BEST I COULD.

HE'S JUST GOOD FOR NOTHIN' JOE,
BUT OH, I LOVE HIM SO,
ID BE GOOD FOR NOTHIN' TOO,
I KNOW,
IF HED EVER LEAVE ME FLAT,
OH YES, I'M CERTAIN OF THAT.
FOLKS I KNOW CAN'T UNDERSTAND
WHY I MUST LOVE THAT MAN.
LORD, HE SENDS ME
LIKE NOBODY CAN,
NOW AIN'T A WOMAN
JUST LIKE THAT!
I WOULDN'T MIND
DOING WHAT I'M DOING,
I'D BEAT THESE STREETS
TILL MY FEET WERE SORE,
BUT WHEN IM TIRED
AND I GO HOME TO HIM,
INSTEAD OF SYMPATHY,
HE'S JUST AS MEAN AS CAN BE.


BUT THERE'S NOTHNG
I CAN DO
BECAUSE I LOVE THAT MAN SO,
I'D BE GOOD FOR NOTHIN' TOO,
I KNOW,
WITHOUT GOOD FOR NOTHIN' JOE.

Lyrics MAYBE IT'S BEST
THAT WE'RE THROUGH,
WHAT WAS IT
LEADING US TO?
YOU WERE PRETENDING,
THIS IS JUST ENDING,
DREAMS THAT COULD NEVER
COME TRUE.
YOU GO YOUR WAY IN CONTENT,
I'M TRYING HARD TO REPENT.

MY SIN
WAS LOVING YOU.
NOT WISELY,
BUT TOO WELL.
YOUR SIN
WAS LETTING ME
AND GETTING ME
IN YOUR SPELL.
OUR SIN
WAS FOLLOWING
A LOVE THAT COULD NOT BE,
NOW MY SIN
IS WANTING YOU
THOUGH YOU'VE FORGOTTEN ME.

MY SIN
WAS LOVING YOU
AND YIELDING TO YOUR CHARMS
YOUR SIN
WAS HOLDING ME
AND FOLDING ME
IN YOUR ARMS.
YOUR SIN
IS OVER NOW, I GUESS,.
YOU'VE FOUND YOUR HAPPINESS,.
AND YOUR LOVE IS OVER, TOO.
BUT MY SIN
IS JUST THE SAME,
I'M STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU

Lyrics I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU
FIRST TIME I LOOKED INTO
THEM THERE EYES.
YOU'VE GOT A CERTAIN
LIL' CUTE WAY OF FLIRTING
WITH THEM THERE EYES.
THEY MAKE ME FEEL HAPPY,
THEY MAKE ME FEEL BLUE,
NO STALLING,
I'M FALLING,
GOING IN A BIG WAY
FOR SWEET LITTLE YOU.
MY HEART IS JUMPING,
SURE STARTED SOMETHING
WITH THEM THERE EYES.
YOU'D BETTER WATCH THEM
.IF YOU'RE WISE
THEY SPARKLE,
THEY BUBBLE,
THEY'RE GONNA GET YOU
IN A WHOLE LOT OF TROUBLE.
YOU'RE OVERWORKING THEM,
THERE'S DANGER LURKING IN
THEM THERE EYES.

MAYBE YOU THINK
,I'M JUST FLIRTING
MAYBE YOU THINK
I'M ALL LIES,
JUST BECAUSE I GET ROMANTIC
WHEN I GAZE IN
THEM THERE EYES.

Lyrics I WANNA GO WHERE YOU GO,
DO WHAT YOU DO,
LOVE WHEN YOU LOVE,
THEN I'LL BE HAPPY!

YOU CAN GO NORTH OR SOUTH,
YOU CAN GO EAST OR WEST,
I'LL FOLLOW YOU, SWEETHEART,
AND SHARE YOUR LITTLE LOVE NEST.

I WANNA GO WHERE YOU GO,
DO WHAT YOU DO,
LOVE WHEN YOU LOVE,
THEN I'LL BE HAPPY!
