Words and music by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Bryan Kennedy and Dan Roberts

He's got a split finger wrap, and his rope's pulled way too tight.
He's got a lunatic smile 'cause he's really drawn deep tonight.
He's got a fever, fever,
Fever, fever.
Grab a hold of anything and hold on tight;
It hits you like the venom from a rattlesnake bite.
We're all here 'cause he's not all there tonight.


He takes one last breath and time turns inside out;
Then the gate busts open to the world he dreams about.
He's got a fever, fever,
fever, fever.
Stick a rope on anything, 'cause he don't care;
He'd even take a ride in an electric chair.
We're all here 'cause he's not all there tonight.

He says, "It's really kinda simple:
Keep your mind in the middle
while your butt spins 'round and 'round.
Take heed to Sankey's preachin',
Keep a liftin' and a reachin' and a ridin' like there ain't no clowns."


What he loves might kill him, but he's got no choice;
He's a diff'rent breed with a voice down deep inside
That's screamin' he was born to ride.
He's got a fever, fever
fever, fever.
Fever makes you crazy, 'cause it akes not sense;
Like runnin' from your shadow out of self defence
But he won't run, and baby he can't hide;
He thinks the odds are even leavin' one hand tied.
He gets so tired of hangin' on so tight;
I know you think he's crazy, well I think you're right.
We're all here 'cause he's not all there, that's right!
