SO LONG OO-LONG (HOW LONG YOU GONNA BE GONE) (Bert Kalmar / Harry Ruby, 1920) Ming Toy loved a boy, Happy little Japanee; Oo-long was his name, Set her heart a flame. One day he say, "Soon I gotta go away;" When he leave Ming Toy grieve; Everybody hear her say: Days fly quickly by, Turning into lonely years; Tho' the nights are long, Ming Toy's faith is strong. She kneels and feels, That she doesn't pray in vain; Whispers "Oo I love you, Ming Toy wants you back again." "So long! Oo-long, how long you gonna be gone? Your little Japanee, Will be waiting underneath the bamboo tree; So don't be too long, Oo-long I'll long while you're away Waiting for the day when you'll come back to me. I'll sit and sigh, 'Neath the Oriental sky, Each day that I am left a lone In Naki Saki. So long! Oo-Long, How long you goin' to roam? Please don't be too long Oo-long, so long hurry back home."
