I'VE BEEN THERE (Allan / David (m & l) ) As released by Margaret Whiting 1959 < Margaret Whiting's Great Hits > Also sung by Tommy Edwards 1959 Don't tell about his (her) arms I've been there I know all about his (her) charms I've been there. I know all too well That velvet touch of his (hers) And the way he (she) purrs And the way he'll (she'll) say Okay, I'd love to. Don't tell me about his (her) kiss I've kissed him (her) And I'm not ashamed to say I've missed him (her). And if he (she) changes his (her) mind And comes back to me I know how it will be Just wonderful for I've been there, you see. And if he (she) changes her mind And comes back to me I know how it will be Just wonderful for I've been there, you see. NOTES: Margaret Whiting was a very popular 1940s/50s/60s pop, jazz, C & W singer and TV personality born in Detroit USA. She had a host of recordings and continued to entertain until the 1990s. This song may be perhaps better recognized when sung by Tommy Edwards who performed it on North American national TV (Dick Clark Bandstand) in 1959. It has a distinct similarity to Edwards seminal hit < It's All In The Game > . (see elsewhere in this ILP database In Tommy Edwards' work, < I've Been There > was also released as the 'A' side of a 7 inch single in 1959. The 'B' side was < I Looked At Heaven > . The orchestra and chorus for both of these releases was under the direction of LeRoy Holmes. (Transcribed by David Story -March 2014)
