WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? From the Broadway Musical "The New Yorkers" (1930) (Cole Porter) Charles King & Hope Williams (Broadway Production) - 1930 Emil Coleman & His Orch. - 1930 Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians(vocal: The Three Waring Girls) - 1931 Bud Freeman & His Orch. - 1945 Teddi King - 1955 Barbara Lea - 1956 Billy Eckstine - 1958 Judy Holliday - 1958 Bobby Short - 1972 Elisabeth Welch - 1986 If ever you love again, if such luck could be You must fall in love again with nobody but me For now that I see you, I know That we should have met long ago Where have you been? I want to know where have you been? My life was a losing fight Till the lucky night Baby, you happened in From what I had heard about love I thought it was all sorrow and sin But now that we meet at last I forget the past Baby, where have you been? I was alone, unbefriended In the depths of despair When out of the blue you descended And somehow ended ev'ry care So, if you will give me a break And order the love scene to begin So close to your side I'll stay You can never say "Baby, where have you been?" ******************** As recorded by BILLY ECKSTINE: Please tell me, where have you been? I want to know, where have you been? My life was a losing fight Till the lucky night, Baby, you happened in! From what I had heard about love, I thought it was all sorrow and sin! But now that we meet at last, I forget what's past; Baby, where have you been? I was a fool unbefriended, In the depths of despair, When out of the blue you descended And somehow ended every care! So if you will give me a break And order the love scene to begin, So close to your side I'll stay, You can never say, "Baby, where have you been?". So if you will give me a break And order the love scene to begin, So close to your side I'll stay, You can never say, "Baby, where have you been?".
