Fever by Little Nell

I was born to be the queen of beauty
Style and poise
But oh this competition's tough
I'm up against those boys
The title I am after baby
Is my greatest dream

I wanna be a beauty
I wanna be a beauty
I wanna be a beauty queen

I'll join a gym, and silicone
And tan my body gold
What's beneath that swimsuit's
Gonna knock those judges cold
Charisma is no problem
I'll just dress to kill

I wanna be a beauty
I wanna be a beauty
I wanna be a beauty queen

La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la-a

Hobbies, well I love to cook
And give to charity
Ambitions are to be a mom
And gain my Ph. D.
Come on and crown me winner
I'll shed those tears of joy
Oh...

I wanna be a beauty
I wanna be a beauty
I wanna be a beauty queen

La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la-a

On a tropical isle
I'd walk for a mile
Just to hear a jukebox play
In the sizzling heat - Ooh!
I must have raw feet
And dance that cocktail Latin way - Hey
I'm not laid back at all
Just wanna have me a ball
In a crosscut and slacks, Wooh! - I never relax
And palm trees will sway as I say
Oh, I'm gonna sing in the sun every day
Oh, I'm gonna dance dance dance
That cocktail Latin way

Oh, the moon on the bay
It shimmers away
As I hula hoop on the sand
Oooh, waves on the beach
Within easy reach
Paradise is so carefully planned, and
I just peeled me a grape
Don't ever want to escape - No!
No sugar tax or income tax
Or things I just don't understand
Oh, I'm gonna sing in the sun every day
Oh, I'm gonna dance dance dance
That cocktail Latin way

Oh, I'm gonna sing in the sun every day
Oh, I'm gonna dance dance dance
That cocktail Latin way

At a swim pool party last long weekend
I found some real cool fun in the deep end
From the patio juke a bop beat wailed
I splashed to the beat and off I sailed

I did the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
I did the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
I did the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
I did the swim

Now come with me, you gotta look cute
Get all decked out in a trim swimsuit
Rush to the pool and dive right in
Come up for air, and then you start to swim

You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim

Move your arms and kick your feet
Do a dog paddle to the squishy beat
Wave your hands up very high
And start to do some butterflies

Turn right over onto your back
And backstroke quick from a shark attack - Oh!
??? on now for the best of all
Do it with me, the Australian crawl

You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim

You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim

Just one more lap!

You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim
(Splash splash, she's a mer-mermaid)
You do the swim

(Chorus)
Everybody's got the Fever
That is something we all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long ago

Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet, she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said Julie baby, you're my flame
Now give us

(Ooh, ooh, ooh! - Fever)
I wanna kiss her
(Fever)
With my flaming youth
(Fever)
Now I'm on fire
Yeah, I burn forsooth

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
(Ooh, ooh, ooh! - Fever)
With his kisses
(Fever)
When he holds me tight
(Fever)
I'm his Mrs.
Daddy, won't you treat him right

(Chorus)
Everybody's got the Fever
That is something we all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long ago

Now you've listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
Chicks are going to give cats Fever
They get Fahrenheight or Centigrade

You give me
(Ooh, ooh, ooh! - Fever)
When you kiss them
(Fever)
I just have to burn
(Fever)
Till I sizzle!
(Fever)
What a lovely way to burn
(Fever)
What a lovely way to burn
(Fever)
What a lovely way to burn

(Everybody's got the Fever)
What a lovely way to burn
(That is something we all know)
What a lovely way to burn
(Fever isn't such a new thing)
What a lovely way to burn
(Fever started long ago)
What a lovely way to burn

Repeat chorus twice more to fadeout

You used to be my number one
But now your flip side ain't much fun
At 45 you're much too fast
(For me, for me, for me)
So slow it down to 33
You bruised me raw (???)
You broke my heart
You're slipping
You're sliding right up up a chart

See you round like a record
Our romance is kinda checkered
See you round like a record
See you round

Check you out maybe later
Leave your name with the waiter
See you round like a record
See you round

You are my desert island disc
A sure-fire hit without a miss
Your first, it really knocked me out
It sounded just like Twist And Shout
I'm gonna leave
Yeah, leave you cold
I just won't
I just don't
Dig your Rock and Roll

See you round like a record
Our romance is kinda checkered
See you round like a record
See you round

Check you out maybe later
Leave your name with the waiter
See you round like a record
See you round

See you round like a record
Our romance is kinda checkered
See you round like a record
See you round

I'll see you round like a record
(repeated several times)

Stilettos and lipstick
Are the things for me
When I am wearing them
I feel so sexy

Walking down a big street
On my spiked heels
Don't compare to nothing
Driving round on wheels
Oh oh oh

Black and shiny on my feet
Bright red on my lips
A skimpy see-through number
And a mini on my hips
Oh oh oh

Stilettos and lipstick
Are the things for me
When I am wearing them
I feel so sexy

I can go out dancing
Click and clack all night
Nothing's gonna stop me
I ain't no cheap prize fight

In a pool I'm magic
An aquamatic sight
When I'm spiked and glossy
Boy, I am dynamite
Oh oh oh

All the guys they whistle
And some they flash a wink
But if they stop to hustle
I'll have to slink
Oh oh oh

Stilettos and lipstick
Are the things for me
When I am wearing them
I feel so sexy
Oh oh oh

Repeat chorus twice more to fadeout
