About Have You Seen Her

"Have You Seen Her" is a song recorded by the soul vocal group The Chi-Lites and released on Brunswick Records in 1971. Composed by the lead singer Eugene Record and Barbara Acklin, the song was included on the group's 1971 album (For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People. The Chi-Lites recorded "Have You Seen Her" in a style owing much to the doo-wop traditions of the late 1950s; after the success of another such song earlier in the year, The Temptations' "Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me). " The song begins and ends with a narrator remarking on how he was once happy with a woman; however, she left him, so he passes the days by partaking in leisurely activities. Much to his dismay, the woman does not return or attempt to communicate with him as he had hoped. The narrator ends the song musing on how foolish he was for believing the woman of his dreams would always be around. Some radio edits have omitted the spoken dialogue. The song peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and reached the top of the Billboard R&B Singles chart in November 1971. It also reached No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1972.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,

One month ago today
I was happy as a lark
But now I go for walks
To the movies, maybe to the park

I have a seat on the same old bench
To watch the children play, huh
You know tomorrow is their future
But for me just another day

They all gather â??round me, huh
They seem to know my name
We laugh, tell a few jokes
But it still doesn't ease my pain

I know I can't hide from a memory
Though day after day I've tried
I keep sayin' she'll be back
But today again I've lied

Oh, I see her face everywhere I go
On the street and even at the picture show
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her

Oh, I hear her voice as the cold winds blow
In the sweet music on my radio
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her

Why, oh, why
Did she have to leave and go away
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
I've been used to havin' someone to lean on
And I'm lost, baby, I'm lost

Oh, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]

Oh, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]

Oh, she left her kiss upon my lips
But left that break within my heart
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her

Oh, I see her hand reaching out to me
Only she can set me free
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her

Why, oh, why
Did she have to leave and go away
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
I've been used to havin' someone to lean on
And I'm lost, baby, I'm lost

Oh, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]

As another day comes to an end
I'm lookin' for a letter or somethin'
Anything that she would send
With all the people I know, hmm
I'm still a lonely man
You know it's funny
I thought I had her in the palm of my hand

Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]

Oh (Oh, yeah, eah, eah,), doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Have you seen her (Have you seen her)
Tell me have you seen her (Have you seen her)

Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]

Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]
Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]

Have you seen her
Tell me have you seen her [Tell me have you seen her]
