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? ------ piano ------ Let me dream that it's true Kiss me twice, then once more That makes thrice, let's make it four What a break, for heaven's sake How long has this been goin' on? **************** as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Nelson Riddle & his Orch Jan 5th 1959 Hollywood 'Neath the stars, At bazaars, Often I've had to caress men! Five or ten Dollars, then I 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?
