THE FEVER

Official studio version


Alright
When I get home from my job, I turn on the TV
But I can't keep my mind on the show
When I lay down at night, I don't get no sleep
So I turn on the radio
But Lord, the only thing I hear is you whisperin' in my ear
The words that you used to say
Well now the days grow longer
My love grows stronger
The fever gets worse every day
I got the fever for this girl

He's got the fever, oh he's got the fever
Nothing that a po' boy can do
When he's got the fever for a girl
He's got the fever, oh he's got the fever
Left this little boy blue

Well, I can remember comin' home
See you standin' at the stove
With the dishes on the table
Dinner ready to go
Well maybe out to a movie show
Something that you like to see
Because you were my sun in the morning
You're my moon at night
When I think about it, makes me feel alright
Well now the day grow longer
The love just grows stronger, baby
And the fever gets so bad at night
I got the fever for a girl

He's got the fever, oh he's got the fever
Nothing that a po' boy can do
When he's got the fever for a girl
He's got the fever, oh he's got the fever
Left this little boy blue
Alright

Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Baby alright
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Baby alright
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Let's make it alright

Well I can remember coming home, turning on my TV
But he can't keep his mind on the show
When I lay down at night,
I cannot get no sleep
So I turn on the radio
But still the only thing I hear is you whisperin' in my ear
Them words that you used to say
And now the days grow longer
And the love just grow stronger
And the fever gets bad everyday
I got the fever for this girl

He's got the fever, oh he's got the fever
Nothing a po' boy can do
When he's got the fever for a girl
He's got the fever, oh he's got the fever
Left this little boy blue
Alright

He's got the fever, oh he's got the fever
Nothing a po' boy can do
When he's got the fever for a girl
He's got the fever, oh he's got the fever
Left this little boy blue

Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Alright
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Everybody
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Everybody
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Alright
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
???
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Alright now
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
