(Any resemblance to Peggy Lee's well known tune Fever is purely coincidental)
Cabin Fever- never know how much I hate you
Never know how little that I care -
When you put your cold shoulder 'round me
I get a fever that is really hard to bear.
You give me cabin fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning, fever all through the night.
No sun lights up the morning,
No moonlight lights up the night.
I don't light up when you call my name
Because you know you don't treat me right.
Cabin Fever - never know how much I hate you
Never know how much I really do despair.
Please let the sun shine down upon me
And raise the temperature to something I can bear.
Don't give me cabin fever, with your grip so awfully tight
No fever in the morning, and no fever all through the night.
Everybody's got the Cabin fever, maybe even you.
I'm sick of winter doldrums, I've think I've had my share.
I need to see the sun shine and see the sky so blue
And get out my clubs and even try- to par a hole or two.
