Boogie fever, got to boogie down
Boogie fever, I think it's going around

I took my baby to the drive-in show
She turned the speaker down
And then she turned on the radio
I watched a silent movie, diggin' funky sound

She's got the boogie fever
She likes to boogie down
Boogie fever
I think it's going around

I took my baby to the pizza parlor (pizza parlour)
To get a bite to eat, na na na
I put some money in the jukebox for her
You know she ate her pizza dancing to the beat

She's got the boogie fever
She likes to boogie down, oh
Shes got the boogie fever
I think it's going around

(All night long, we did the bump, bump, bump)
Yes we did, yes we did, yes we did, yeah
(She kept it going strong) doin' the bump, bump, bump (doin' the bump, bump, bump, yeah)

I called the doctor on the telephone (doctor, doctor)
Said doctor, doctor, please, ah ah ah
I got this feeling
Rocking and a'reeling
Tell me, what can it be, is it some new disease

They call it boogie fever
You got to boogie down (just get on down)
Boogie fever, I think it's going around

Fever
Fever
Fever, ooh, ooh, ooh
(All night long, we did the bump, bump, bump)
Yes we did, yes we did, yes we did
(We kept it going strong) doin the bump, bump, bump

Yeah, everybody's got the boogie fever
You got to boogie down, you get on down, you get on down
Boogie fever, boo-boo-boo-boogie fever, I think it's going around and around and around 

I got the boogie fever
You got the boogie fever
She's got the boogie fever
Everybody's got the boogie fever
Boogie fever
Boogie down (just get on down, just get on down)
