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.
