— written by c.otis, b. benton, l. dejesus

bonnie:
if you’re gonna give me good kisses like that
honey don’t you know i’m gonna give ’em right back
cause that’s a kissin’ good way
that’s a kissin’ good way
that’s a kissin’ good way to mess around and fall in love
shaky: if you’re gonna start out hugging me tight
bonnie: right
shaky: don’t mess around come and hug me right
cause 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
bonnie: you know you called me on the phone
shaky: yeah i got your number
bonnie: and just because i was alone
ah, you came around a-wooing
shaky: why not?
bonnie: you better ask somebody if you don’t
know what you’re doing
shaky: now that you’ve kissed me and you
rocked my soul
don’t come around knockin’ rock and roll
cause that’s a rocking good way
that’s a rockin’ good way
that’s a rocking good way to mess
around and fall in love
bonnie: tell me baby
shaky: well, now you called me on the phone
bonnie: yeah baby
shaky: and just because i was alone
you came around a-wooing
you better ask somebody if you don’t
know what you’re doing
bonnie: now that you’ve kissed me and you
rocked my soul
shaky: i love you so
bonnie:don’t come around knockin’ rock and roll
cause 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
bonnie: it’s a rockin’ good way
shaky: it’s a rockin’ good way
both: it’s a rockin’ good way
to mess around and fall in love
