Who's gonna kiss me
Who's gonna thrill me
Who's gonna hold me tight
Tonight

Why did I tell you I was goin' to Shanghai
I want to be with you tonight
Why did I holler I was goin' to Shanghai
I want to be with you tonight

It was just a little misunderstanding
That a kiss on the cheek could patch
I need you so badly
I'd gladly start all over from scratch

Oh, why did I tell you it was bye-bye for Shanghai
I'm even allergic to rice
Why don't you stop me when I talk about Shanghai
It's just a lover's device

Now who's gonna kiss me
Who's gonna thrill me
Who's gonna hold me tight
I'm right around the corner in the phone booth
And I wanna be with you tonight

Now why did I tell you it was bye-bye for Shanghai
I'm even allergic to rice
Why don't you stop me when I talk about Shanghai
It's just a lovers device

Now who's gonna kiss me
Who's gonna thrill me
Who's gonna hold me tight
I'm right around the corner in the phone booth
And I wanna be with you tonight

Who's gonna kiss me
Who's gonna thrill me
Who's gonna hold me tight
I'm right around the corner in the phone booth
And I wanna, yes I wanna, I wanna be with you tonight
