About Fever

"Fever" is a song written by Eddie Cooley and Otis Blackwell, who used the pseudonym John Davenport. It was originally recorded by American R&B singer Little Willie John for his debut album, Fever (1956), and released as a single in April of the same year. The song managed to top the Billboard R&B Best Sellers in the US and peak at number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was received positively by music critics and included on several lists of the best songs during the time it was released. It has been covered by numerous artists from various musical genres, most notably by Peggy Lee, whose rendition became the most widely known version of "Fever" and the singer's signature song. Lee's version contained rewritten lyrics different from the original and an altered music arrangement. It became a top-five hit on the music charts in the UK and Australia in addition to entering the top ten in the US and the Netherlands. "Fever" was nominated in three categories at the 1st Annual Grammy Awards in 1959, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Ooh
You give me fever
Fever ooh

Ooh
You give me fever
Fever in the morning
Fever when it's late at night
You give me fever
(Fever)
Fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
You give me fever
(Fever)
Fever in the evening
Fever all through the night
You give me fever, yeah
(Fever)
Fever when you're with me
Fever when you love me right

He's so sweet
He's so good to me
He's so intelligent
He's so confident

My baby's so very sexy
(Uh huh)
My baby put the fever on me, uh
(Uh huh)
My baby knows just what to do
(Uh huh)
You got me boilin' past a hundred and two
(Uh huh)

You give me fever ooh
Oh, uh

Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I catch a fever that's so hard to bare

You give me fever
(Fever)
When you kiss me and fever when you hold me tight
You give me fever
(Fever)
In the mornin' and fever all through the night

My baby's so damn sexy
(Uh huh)
My baby put the fever on me
(Uh huh)
My baby knows just what to do
(Uh huh)
And got boilin' past a hundred and two

Give me a fever
Ooh

Everybody's got a fever
That is somethin' you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long ago

Romeo loved Juliet
And Juliet felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said "Julie baby you're my flame"
Thou give me fever
When we kisseth 
A fever with the flaming youth 
Fever I'm on fair 
Fever yea a burn peruses

Cap'n Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him 
She said "Daddy, oh don't you dare"
He gives me fever
With his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever
I'm his Mrs.
And Daddy won't you treat him right

Now that you've listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
Chicks were born to give ya fever
Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade 
They give ya fever
When ya kiss em
An fever if you live in learn
Fever until you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
Fever 
'Til ya sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely to
Burn
