George Gershwin - How Long Has This Been Going On (instrumental) LyricsAs a tot, when I trotted in little velvet panties,I was kissed by my sisters, my cousins, and my anties.Sad to tell, it was hell, an inferno worse than Dante's.So my dear I swore,"Never, never more !"On my list, I insisted that kissing must be crossed out.Now, I find I was blind, and oh my ! , how I lost out !I could cry salty tears ;Where have I been all these years ?Little wow, tell me now :How long has this been going on ?There were chills up my spine,And some thrills I can't define.Listen, sweet, I repeat :how long has this been going on ?Oh, I feel that I could melt ;Into Heaven I'm hurled !I know how Clombus 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 going on ?Dear, when in your arms I creep,That divine rendez-vous,Don't wake me, if I'm asleep,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 going on ?--How long has this... been going ... on ?... .
