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 morning
Fever all through the night.

Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
And you know I'm gonna treat you right,
You give me Fever....when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever.....in the morning
Fever all through the night.

Everybodys got the Fever
That is something you all know
Fever is such a nuisance
Fever started long ago.

Romeo loved Julliet
Julliet she felt the same
But when he put his arms around her
He said Julie baby you're my flame
I'll give you Fever.....when you kiss me
Fever when I flame in you
Fever.....I'm on fire
Fever, yea I burn for you

Captain Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
But 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 misses
Daddy won't you treat him right

Now you've listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
Chicks were born to give you Fever
Be it fair and hide or sandy grey
They give you Fever...when you kiss them
Fever when you live and learn
Fever....till you're sizzlin'
But what a lovely way to burn.

    It isn't "Fever is such a nuisance" it's "Fever ain't such a new thing" and later, instead of "be it fair and hide or sandy gray" it's "Be it fahreinheit or centigrade"

    oh, and the verse about romeo and juliet: "Thou givest fever, when you kisseth, fever with thy flaming youth. Fever- I'm a fire, fever yea I burn forsooth."

    It really saddens me on how few posts there are about Ella. Her passion and confidence far surpasses any other female artist. She was a pioneer for every genre of music our ears recieve today.

    I agree also but i guess 17 year olds aren't in to Ella, Miles Davis and billie holiday. It's really not fair. But i'm glad i'm different and unique and i guess you all to. Jazz forever.

    If you have a juvenile sense of humour like me, great fun can be had by changing the word "fever" for "beaver" in this song:

    "You give me beaver - when you kiss me Beaver when you hold me tight Beaver in the morning Beaver all through the night."

    or

    "Now you've listened to my story Here's the point that I have made Chicks were born to give you beaver Be it fair and hide or sandy grey"

    Hee hee hee.

    This song is meant to be sung with pure sex in the voice. It is sooooooo Sexy and so wonderful to listen to. It requires alot of confidence and sexuality to sing the song but if sung write this song can be smoldering.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
