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 that 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 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

Now I get scarlet fever every time I see her
But she's a night club teaser not paid to notice me
Yes, I get scarlet fever if she knew how much I need her
She'd place her hand in my hand and dance away with me

She looked twenty-five but I was told that she was just sixteen
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
'Coz 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 fever in my mind I still see her
Out there dancing somewhere to another fool like me
Yes, I get scarlet fever if she knew how much I need her
She'd place her hand in my hand and dance away with me
