LONG LAST LOOK, A
(Norman Gimbel / Morris Charlap)
as recorded by Helen O'Connell
with Marion Evans & his Orchestra
I'm taking a long last look
At my one true love,
The love I found and then let go astray!
At the lips I kissed,
And then I'll turn and go my merry way!
I'll forget him and another day,
Then I'll feel like new!
Then I'll find myself a new pasture to graze,
But if my heart isn't breaking,
Then why am I taking
A long last look at the one I lost?
So I will long remember what I see,
For he's a permanent part of the heart of me!
He's a permanent part of the heart,
The very last permanent part of the heart of me!
