Peggy Lee's Fever

I love the voice of Peggy Lee. Here's Fever:


But the lyrics are odd. She sings "you give me fever"..."everybody's got the fever"...
And she puts these words into Pocahontas' mouth: "He gives me fever."

But then at the end of the song: "Now you've listened to my story, here's the point that I have made: Chicks were born to give you fever..."

That is very odd because it was not the point the song made. I'm trying to think why that part was included at all. The song says that everybody's got the fever.
