THE FEVER

Live 20 Dec 1978 version


[Spoken intro:] It's alright. Everybody ??? ???

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 can't get no sleep
So I turn on the radio
Still the only thing I hear is you whispering in my ear
The words you used to say
My day grows longer, my love grow stronger
The fever gets worse every day
I got the fever for you

He got the fever, oh he got the fever
Whoa there's nothing that a boy can do
When he's got the fever for a girl
He got the fever, oh he got the fever
She left this little boy blue

And I can remember coming home
You're standing at the stove
With the dishes on the table
Dinner ready to go
Darling maybe out to a movie show
Something that you like to see
Well now you're my sun in the morning, you're my moon at night
When put your arms around me I feel alright
And the day grows longer, my love grows stronger
And baby, baby, baby, the fever gets worse each night
I've got the fever for the girl

He got the fever, oh he got the fever
Alright, there's nothing that a boy can do
When he's got the fever for a girl
He got the fever, oh he got the fever
Alright, she left me ???
Alright

??? baby

Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
???
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Whoa
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Whoa
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
Baby alright, now
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
If I can make it to the morning
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
I know I'll be alright, now
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
If I ??? can make it to the morning
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
It's just tonight
Ooh ooh ooh he's gonna be alright
When I feel this wind, it's just tonight
Makes me feel this wind, I know it's just tonight
Makes me feel so well, it's just tonight
I remember my love, it's just tonight
And in the morning now
In the morning now

Every time I close my eyes, all I see is her face
Every time I shut my eyes, all I hear is her voice
Every time I close my eyes, all I see is her face
Every time I shut my eyes, all I hear is her voice
And I can't stop myself from thinking
And I can't stop myself from wondering
Baby where are you tonight?
Where is she tonight?
Tell me where is she tonight?
Oh where is she tonight?
Baby where are you tonight?
Baby where are you tonight?
