Kenny Rogers – Scarlet Fever lyrics

Album: 20 Greatest Hits

I stood outside the Lucky Star
Staring at the flashing
It read: come on in and watch young
Scarlet´s body come alive
her dance for you and catch your spell
You´ll swear you can believe her
careful not to catch the scarlet fever.

So I paid my fare and walked down
And found an empty chair
As I settled in young scarlet took the
ribbons from her hair
The moves her body made while the music played
the likes I´ve never seen
And she became the envy of my dreams.

One by
one her teasing movements
Brought the crowd out of their seats
And all at
once young scarlet
Danced straight up in front of me
From the moment that
her eyes found mine
I´ve never been the same
Scarlet locked another heart
upon her chain.

Now I get scarlet fever every time I see her
But she´s
a night club teaser
Not paid to notice me
Yes, I get scarlet fever
she knew how much I need her
She´d place her hand in my hand
And dance
away with me.

She looked 25 but I was told
That she was just 16
had a way of making a man believe
She danced for only him
As she
tantalized I fantasized
And felt the sound of my heart beat
And every
night I´d dream
She´d fall in love with me.

Then one night while
driving in
My eyes begun to tear
´cos the sign outside the Lucky Star
said: scarlet isn´t here
she´d left that day to find a life
of bigger and
better things
and she left behind my chain of broken dreams.

But still
get scarlet fever
In my mind I still see her
Out there dancing
To another fool like me.
Yes, I get ....
