How Long Has This Been Going On? Lyrics
’neath the stars, at bazaarsOften I’ve had to caress menFive or ten, dollars then, I’d collect from all those yes-menDon’t be sad, I must add, that they meant no more than chess-menDarling, can’t you see? ’twas for charity? Though these lips have made slips, it was never really seriousWho’d have thought, I’d be brought to a state that’s so delirious? I could cry salty tearsWhere have I been all these years? Little wow, tell me nowHow long has this been goin’ on? There were chills up my spineAnd some thrills I can’t defineListen sweet, I repeatHow long has this been goin’ on? Oh, I feel that I could meltInto heaven I’m hurledI know how columbus feltFinding another worldKiss me once, then once moreWhat a dunce I was beforeWhat a break, for heaven’s sakeHow long has this been goin’ on? (spoken)Kiss me twice, once more, thrice, make it fourWhat a break, for heaven’s sakeHow long has this been goin’ on?
