Fever

Album: For Your Entertainment (2009)
  • There he goes
    My baby walks so slow
    Sexual tic-tac-toe
    Yeah, I know we both know
    It isn't time
    But could you be m-mine
    We'll never get too far
    Just you, me and the bar
    Silly "menage a trois" sometimes
    Would you be mine [Repeat x3]

    Oh baby, lights on
    But your mom's not home
    I'm sick of laying down alone hey
    With this fever, fever, yeah
    My one and own
    I wanna get you alone
    Give you a fever, fever yeah

    There it goes
    You stole my soul and so
    Cause, sweetheart
    A-no-no-nobody a-no-no-knows
    They're occupied
    Time to be m-mine

    Let's get inside your car
    Just you, me and the stars
    Kind of menage à trois sometimes
    Would he be mine [Repeat x3]

    Oh baby, lights on
    But your mom's not home
    I'm sick of laying down alone (ooh)
    With this fever, fever, yeah
    My one and own
    I wanna get you alone (ooh)
    Give you a fever, fever, yeah

    Yeah, yeah, yeah [Repeat x7]

    Oh baby, your light's on
    But your mom's not home
    I'm sick of laying down alone (ooh)
    With this fever, fever, yeah
    My one and own
    I wanna get you alone (ooh)
    Give you a fever, fever, yeah

    (Ooh)
    Give you fever fever fever yeah
    Fever, fever, yeah Writer/s: JEFF BHASKER, ROB FUSARI, STEFANI GERMANOTTA

  • Hannah from Gustavus, OhTo put it quite simply, this song is about sexual passion. The "fever" can be taken to be this passion, or its physical manifestation - an erection. It should also be noted that toward the end of the song there is a line that says "I got this fever I can't sweat out," which could well be a reference to Panic! At The Disco's debut album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out.
