Fever

From The Elvis Costello Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Now you listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
Cats were made to give chicks fever
Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever till you live and learn
Fever till you sizzle
But what a lovely way to burn
