Lover, Im on the street
Gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar on fire

Shes a candle burning in my room
Yeah Im like the needle, needle and spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon everybody got one
And the fever when Im beside her

And the fever getting higher
Desire, desire
Burning, burning

Shes the dollars
Shes my protection
Yeah shes a promise
In the year of election
Oh sister, I cant let you go
Like a preacher stealing hearts
In a traveling show
For love or money, money, money
Money, money, money, money, money
Money, money, money
And the fever, getting higher
Desire, desire, desire, desire
Desire, desire
