Lyrics
No one knows how much I love you
No one knows how much I care
But when you put your arms around me
I get a feeling that's hard to bear

You give me fever, when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night

Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
I 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 morning
Fever all through the night

Captain 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 missus
So Daddy won't you treat him right

Everybody's got the fever
That is something we all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever Started long ago

Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said "Julie, baby, you're my flame"

You give me fever, when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night

Well, now you've listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
The Cramps were born to give you fever
Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade

We give you fever, when we rock you
Fever 'till you live and learn
Fever 'till you sizzle

But 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 way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
