You 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 mornin'
Fever all through the night

Listen to me, baby
Hear ev'ry word I say
No one could love you the way I do
'Cause they don't know how to love you my way

You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the mornin'
An' fever all through the night

Bless my soul, I love you
Take this heart away
Take these arms I'll never use
An' just believe in what my lips have to say

You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever (fever, burn through) in the mornin'
Fever all through the night

Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
My eyes light up when you call my name
'Cause I know you're gonna treat me right

You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the mornin'
An' fever all through the night
