Scarlet Fever 
By Kenny Rogers

I stood outside the Lucky Star staring at the flashing sign
         G                                    D
It read, Come on in and watch young Scarlet’s body come alive
        G                 A                      D                 G 
Let her dance for you and cast her spell, you’ll swear you can’t believe her
   G                                A
Be careful not to catch the scarlet fever
So I paid my fare and walked down front and found an empty chair
     G                                 D                 
As I settled in young scarlet took the ribbons from her hair
              G                   A                     D                G
The moves her body made while the music played were the likes I’ve never seen
    G              A          D  
And she became the envy of my dreams
[ Tab from: ]
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.

                  G  A               D          G
Now I get scarlet fever every time I see her
G                       Em
But she’s a night club teaser
A                  D
Not paid to notice me
                   G     A
Yes, I get scarlet fever
If she knew how much I need her
G                       Em
She´d place her hand in my hand
    A               D 
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

Chorus 2:
But I still get scarlet fever
In my mind I still see her
Out there dancing somewhere
To another fool like me

Chorus 1
