Written by Barbara Lewis
Peaked at # 3 in 1963
(shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby)
(shoo-bop, shoo-bop)
Hello, stranger
(ooh) It seems so good to see you back again
How long has it been?
(ooh, seems like a mighty long time)
(shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby, ooh)
It seems like a mighty long time
Oh-uh-oh, I my, my, my, m
I'm so glad
You stopped by to say "hello" to me
Remember that's the way it used to be
Ooh, it seems like a mighty long time
(shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby, ooh)
It seems like a mighty long time
Lewis sings a series of "oh-uh-oh's"on both sides of "I'm so
Glad you're here again" while
Backups do 7 (shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby)'s
Oh-ahh-uh-oh
If you're not gonna stay
(ooh) Please don't treat me like you did before
Because I still love you so a-a-although
It seems like a mighty long time
Shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby, ooh
It seems like a mighty long time
Lewis does " Oh-uh-oh, I my, my, my, my" and "I'm so happy
That you're here again" and
Backups repeat (shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby) to end
