‘Fever’ has been covered by numerous artists from various musical genres, most notably by Peggy Lee, whose rendition became the most widely known version and her signature song.

Peggy Lee‘s version contained rewritten lyrics different from the original and an altered music arrangement.

Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that’s so hard to bear
You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the mornin’
Fever all through the night

Sun lights up the day time
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
‘Cause I know you’re gonna treat me right
You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the mornin’
Fever all through the night

Everybody’s got the fever
That is somethin’ you all know
Fever isn’t such a new thing
Fever started long time ago

Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said, ‘Julie baby you’re my flame’
Thou givest fever when we kisseth
Fever with thy flaming youth
Fever I’m on fire
Fever yea 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 fever with his kisses’
‘Fever when he holds me tight’
‘Fever, I’m his missus’
‘Daddy won’t you treat him right?’

Now you’ve listened to my story
Here’s the point that I have made
Chicks were born to give you fever
Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade
We give you fever when we kiss you
Fever if you live and learn
Fever till you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn

It became a top-five hit on the music charts in the UK and Australia in addition to entering the top ten in the US and the Netherlands. ‘Fever’ was nominated in three categories at the 1st Annual Grammy Awards in 1959, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
