How Long Has This Been Going On?
'Neath the stars, at bazaars Often I've had to caress men Five or ten, dollars then, I'd collect from all those yes-men Don't be sad, I must add, that they meant no more than chess-men Darling, can't you see? 'Twas for charity? Though these lips have made slips, it was never really serious Who'd have thought, I'd be brought to a state that's so delirious? I could cry salty tears Where have I been all these years? Little wow, tell me now How long has this been goin' on? There were chills up my spine And some thrills I can't define Listen sweet, I repeat How long has this been goin' on? Oh, I feel that I could melt Into heaven I'm hurled I know how columbus felt Finding another world Kiss me once, then once more What a dunce I was before What a break, for heaven's sake How long has this been goin' on? Kiss me twice, once more, thrice, make it four What a break, for heaven's sake How long has this been goin' on?
