Where ya been, what ya been doin',
What took you so long?

I was wanderin' round this mean old town, chin down on my chest
My brows were beaten, my pride was feelin' like it
Needed a little rest
Then you came along with a beautiful smile,
And you danced just like a dream
You kiss like fire and your lips taste sweeter
Than strawberries and ice cream
Been all around, had all kinds of lovin', never felt a love so strong
Where ya been, what ya been doin', what took you so long

I remember how you looked at me, a big smile on your face
It moved me, so it's a memory time will not erase
'Cause you came along when I was wishin' I was six feet underground
It's good to know when you least expect it, true love can be found
You picked me up and dusted me off,
Got me singing a brand new song
Where ya been, what ya been doin', what took you so long

Chorus:

Where ya been, what ya been doin',
What took you so long to appear?
All I know is we're going to stay together,
Springtime through winter, year after year after year

We're pitchin' woo and cooin' together like a couple of turtle doves
Some folks say it's crazy but I like to call it good ol' fashioned love
If we keep on lovin' like there's no tomorrow, baby, we can't go wrong
Where ya been, what ya been doin', what took you so long

Repeat Chorus
Repeat Last Verse
