If you're gonna give me good kissin' like that 
Honey, don'tcha know I'm gonna give 'em right back to you 
That's a kissin' good way (that's a kissin' good way)
Ah, that's a kissin' good way (that's a kissin' good way)
Now, that's a kissin' good way to mess around and fall in love
(Don't mess around, don't mess around)

If you're gonna start out by huggin' me tight
Don't mess around, just a-hug me right
'Cause that's a huggin' good way (that's a huggin' good way)
That's a huggin' good way (that's a huggin' good way)
That's a huggin' good way to mess around and fall in love
(Don't mess around, don't mess around)

Ya know you called me on the phone 
And just because I was alone
Yes, you came around wooin' 
Ah, you'd better ask somebody if you don't know what you're doin'

Now you kissed me and you rocked my soul
And don't come around knockin' rock 'n' roll
'Cause that's a rockin' good way (that's a rockin' good way)
Yes, that's a rockin' good way (that's a rockin' good way)
That's a rockin' good way, ah, ah, to mess around and fall in love
(Don't mess around, don't mess around)

Well, ya know you called me on the phone 
And just because I was alone 
You came around a-wooin'
You gotta ask somebody if you don't know what you're doin'

Mmm, now that you've kissed me and rocked my soul
Don't come around knockin' rock 'n' roll
That's a rockin' good way (that's a rockin' good way)
Dinah, that's a rockin' good way (that's a rockin' good way)
That's a rockin' good way to mess around and fall in love 

It's a rockin' good way
I love to rock; how 'bout you?
Ah, baby, you got what it takes
Ah, ha, ain't that somethin'?
