Lyrics Print lyrics

You give me

You give me fever

 

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

Listen to me baby

Hear every word I say

No one can love you the way I do

'Cause they don't know how to love you my way

 

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

My eyes light up when you call my name

'Cause I know you're gonna treat me right

Bless my soul I love you

Take this heart away

Take these arms I'll never use

And just believe in what my lips have to say

 

You give me fever

When you kiss me

Fever when you hold me tight

Fever in the morning

Fever all through the night

 

Everybody's got the fever

That is something you should know

Fever isn't such a new scene

Fever started long ago

 

You give me fever

Fever

You give me, you give me fever

You give me... fever

When you kiss me

Fever when you hold me tight

Fever in the morning

Fever all through the night

 

Romeo loved Juliet

Juliet she felt the same

When he put his arms around her

He said Julie baby you're my flame

He gave her fever

 

Sun lights up the daytime

Moon lights up the night

My eyes 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

Fever with his kisses

Fever when he holds me tight

 

Everybody's got the fever

That is something you should know

Fever isn't such a new scene

Fever started long ago

Fever

 

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 Misses

Daddy, won't you treat him right

 

Fever when you kiss them

Fever if you live and learn

Fever, 'til you sizzle

What a lovely way to burn

What a lovely way to burn

What a lovely way to burn

Single

Fever, the singleThis fourth Erotica single was released in March 1993, only outside the US and Canada. The dancy cover of the classic Peggy Lee song climbed the charts to #6 in the UK and #7 in Japan. In Australia it stalled at a disappointing #51. It wasn't released in the US because it was the B-single for Bad Girl. The maxi-single of that song featured several remixes of Fever. Thanks to those remixes, Fever became a #1 on the Hot Dance / Club Play chart. The Edit One remix (used in the video) only appeared as a B-single for Rain in Europe.

Video

Fever, the video The video by Stephane Sednaoui is quite an extraordinary one. Using red as dominating colour, the video shows fast images of a dancing Madonna and a male dancer. Madonna is seen either wearing a red wig and a red dress, or a golden Gaultier outfit with silver-painted hair and skin. The use of bodypaint is typical for Sednaoui's work. The video is set to the Edit One remix of the song.

Fever also has a sepia-toned montage video consisting of classic Madonna clips with an edit of the album version that was initially used to promote the single in the UK.

 

Tour

Fever @ Girlie ShowAfter Erotica, Fever was the second song on the setlist of the Girlie Show and the first one Madonna sang live. As the audience goes wild, she brings a big smile on her face as she sing "You give me fever", again using the Edit One remix. No doubt big smiles on many fans' faces as well when they saw the two sexy dancers that accompanied Madonna on stage. It was the first but certainly not the last performance of the show in which Madonna and her dancers get physical. Madonna even hinted at Rita Hayworth (her signature femme fatale role in the 1946 film noir Gilda) when she seductively took off her gloves as a striptease.
