You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much love drives a man insane
You broke my will, but what a thrill
Goodness gracious, great balls of fire

I laughed at love 'cause I thought it was funny
You came along and you moved me honey
I've changed my mind, this love is fine
Goodness gracious, great balls of fire

Kiss me baby, ooh, feels good
Hold me baby
Well, I'll still love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
Got to tell this world that you're mine, mine, mine, mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I'm real nervous but it sure is fun
Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious, great balls of fire

Well kiss me baby, ooh, feels good
Hold me baby
Well, I'll still love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
Got to tell this world that you're mine, mine, mine, mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I'm real nervous but it sure is fun
Come on baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious, great balls of fire

    General CommentJerry was a crazy dude...this song is pretty kick ass, especial in the movie when he plays before Chuck Berry and he gets pissed and lights the piano on fire during that insane solo!!!

    General CommentSo I was reading about Jerry Lee Lewis on Wikipedia and it was talking about this song being viewed as controversial, and it wasn't associated with the whole, marrying his cousin thing. It made it out that this song was offensive in some way. Is there some other way to view this song that I'm not getting? Because I don't think I see how this is offensive.
