It's been a long time,
Since I've seen your smiling face.
It's been a long time,
Since I've seen a su-u-u-u-u-u-unny day.

It's been a long time,
Since you wore your pillbox hat.
It's been a long time,
Since we drove your Po-o-o-o-o-o-ontiac.

It's been a long time,
Since you gave me bu-u-u-u-u-u-u-utterflies
It's been a long time,
Since I've seen it bu-u-u-u-u-u-urning in your eyes.

But I don't mind (I don't mind),
No I don't (I don't mind),
No I don't (I don't mind),
When I've got you next to me.

It's been a long time,
Since we tripped into this ditch.
It's been a long time,
Since we drank the ar-r-r-r-r-r-rsenic

It's been a long time,
Since we've been insi-i-i-i-i-i-ide of this tomb.
It's been a long time,
Since you wore your e-e-e-e-e-expensive French perfume.

But I don't mind (I don't mind),
No I don't (I don't mind),
But I don't (I don't mind),
When I've got you next to me.
Next to me

It's been a long time,
Since I've seen your smiling face.
It's been a long time,
Since I've seen a su-u-u-u-u-u-unny day.

    I think this song is about marriage. It has its ups and downs but it is a good thing when two are committed and are going to keep their vows - for better and for worse. It will be both good and bad but you don't mind because you have your spouse next to you.
