WILD KISSES (I'M GONNA TREAT YOU RIGHT)


Well Mister, you see that girl walking down the street
That little girl, she used to turn' em on
Wild kisses and a heart that's oh-so-sweet
In the middle of the night

And now, wild kisses seem to settle down
Afraid to get my feet back on the ground
Well baby ???
I'm gonna meet her tonight

And now my wild world's tumblin' and dancin'
I'm looking for true romancin'
???
Listen to me baby
I wanna celebrate my dream, girl
I don't want no lonely dream, babe
I wanna give everything to my little baby tonight

I gotta get my feet back on the track
What she gives me, my god, she break my back
???

Wild kisses in the morning
Gives me a reason to go on
Wild kisses ???
???
And now ??? like dancin'
??? true romancin'
Why won't you ??? heart ??? to try
Listen to me, baby
I want to ??? girl
I want to ???
I want to ???

I don't want ???
???
Listen to my heart girl
I know ???
???

Mister, see that girl walkin' down the street
Well that girl, she used to drive me wild
Wild kisses ???
I'm gonna meet her tonight

Wild kisses and ???

WILD KISSES (I'M GONNA TREAT YOU RIGHT) is a song known from circulating audio of a 1978 band rehearsal. There's no indication that the song was recorded in studio.

The above lyrics are for a band rehearsal workout of [P]WILD KISSES (I'M GONNA TREAT YOU RIGHT) believed to have been recorded during a break in midst of the Darkness On The Edge Of Town Tour, on 26 Oct 1978 at Springsteen's Telegraph Hill Road property in Holmdel, NJ, nicknamed "Telegraph Hill Studios". This wasn't a true studio; it was a converted barn that Springsteen and the band used to practice songs around the time The River was being cut in studio. Working out arrangements cuts down pricey hours at The Power Station where the album was recorded.

A significant amount of The River sessions audio that has surfaced unofficially comes from these Telegraph Hill sessions. Unfortunately the audio quality leaves much to be desired. It sounds as if a single boom recording mike was used and Springsteen's vocals are buried under the instruments on virtually all these recordings.
