*Brook*
If you're gonna give me good kissin' like that <what?>
Honey, don'tcha know I'm gonna give 'em right back to you <forgive me>
That's a kissin' good way (that's a kissin' good way)
Ahh, 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)

*Dinah*
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)

*Brook*
Ya know you called me on the phone <yeah, baby>
And just because I was alone
Yes, you came around wooin' <admit it>
Ahh, you'd better ask somebody if you don't know what you're doin'

*Dinah*
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)

*Dinah*
Well, ya know you called me on the phone <mm, mm>
And just because I was alone <that's why I called ya, baby>
You came around a-wooin'
You gotta ask somebody if you don't know what you're doin'

*Brook*
Mmm, now that you've kissed me <ah, ah> 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 <I'm with you, baby!>(that's a rockin'
good way)
That's a rockin' good way to mess around and fall in love
<You better know it, baby>


SPOKEN:
*Dinah* It's a rockin' good way
*Brook* I love to rock, how 'bout you?
*Dinah* Ahh, baby, you got what it takes
*Brook* Ah ha!! Ain't that somethin'?
