Scarlet Fever

Song Author Mike Dekle Performer: Kenny Rogers Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I stood outside the Lucky Star staring at the flashing sign
It read [F]come on in and watch young Scarlet's [C]body come alive
Let her [F]dance for you and [G7]cast her spell
You'll [C]swear you can be[F]lieve her
Be careful not to catch the scarlet [G7]fever

So I [C]paid my fare and walked down front and found an empty chair
As I [F]settled in young scarlet took the [C]ribbons from her hair
The moves her [F]body made while the [G7]music played
Were the [C]likes I've never [F]seen
And she became the [G7]envy of my [C]dreams


One by one her teasing movements brought the crowd out of their seats
And [F]all at once young scarlet danced right [C]up in front of me
From the [F]moment that her [G7]eyes found mine
I've [C]never been the [F]same
Scarlet locked another [G7]heart upon her [C]chain

Now I get scarlet [F]fe-v-[G7]er every time I [C]see her
[F]But she's a night club [Dm]teaser
[G7]Not paid to notice [C]me yes I get scarlet [F]fe-v-[G7]er   
If she knew how much I [C]need her
She'd [F]place her hand in my [Dm]hand and [G7]dance away with [C]me  


She looked 25 but I was told that she was just 16
She had a [F]way of making a man believe she [C]danced for only him
As [F]she tantalized I [G7]fantasized
And [C]felt the sound of my heart [F]beat
And every night I'd dream she'd [G7]fall in love with [C]me  


Then one night while driving in my eyes begun to tear
Cause the [F]sign outside the Lucky Star said [C]Scarlet isn't here
She'd [F]left that day to [G7]find a life
Of [C]bigger and better [F]things
And she left behind my [G7]chain of broken [C]dreams

But still get scarlet [F]fe-v-[G7]er   
In my mind I still [C]see her
[F]Out there dancing somewhere
[G7]To another fool like [C]me  

Yes I get scarlet [F]fe-v-[G7]er   
If she knew how much I [C]need her
She'd [F]place her hand in my hand and [G7]dance away with [C]me  


I stood outside the Lucky Star staring at the flashing sign
It read come on in and watch young Scarlet's body come alive
Let her dance for you and cast her spell
You'll swear you can believe her
Be careful not to catch the scarlet fever

So I paid my fare and walked down front 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
Were 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 right 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 fe-v-er every time I see her
But she's a night club teaser
Not paid to notice me yes I get scarlet fe-v-er
If 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
She 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
Cause 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 fe-v-er
In my mind I still see her
Out there dancing somewhere
To another fool like me

Yes I get scarlet fe-v-er
If she knew how much I need her
She'd place her hand in my hand and dance away with me
