Oh, the meanest thing you ever did was kiss me,
When you didn't mean your kisses at all;
Makin' love to me that way, just to pass the time of day,
What you wanna act so smart for,
What you wanna steal my heart for, (Come on, tell me!)

It's just like taking candy from a baby,
I forgive you, but I've got to tell you this:
'Bout the meanest thing you ever did was kiss me,
And leave me cryin', oh, baby, for another kiss.

[Spoken]
Yes! Bring that kiss on out there! Yes!
Aw, rock it!
Yeah!
Ah, yas, yas,
Oh, yas, yas,
Oh, hi, hi,
Yas, yas!
Ah-huh!

'Bout the meanest thing you ever did was kiss me,
And leave me cryin' for another kiss.

[Scatting]
