GREAT BALLS OF FIRE

Original Jerry Lee Lewis version


You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much love drives a man insane
You broke my will, but what a thrill
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

I laughed at love 'cause I thought it was funny
You came along and moved me honey
I've changed my mind, this girl is fine
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

Kiss me baby, oooh feels good
Hold me baby, well I want to love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
Got to tell this world that you're mine mine mine mine

I chewed my nails and then I twiddled my thumb
I'm real nervous but it sure is fun
Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire

Well kiss me baby, oooh feels good
Hold me baby, well I want to love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
Got to tell this world that you're mine mine mine mine

I chewed my nails and then I twiddled my thumb
I'm real nervous but it sure is fun
Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire
