How Long Has This Been Going On
Carmen McRae Lyrics


'Neath the stars, at bazaars
Often I've had to caress men
Don't be sad, I must add, that they meant no more than chess-men

How long has this been?
How long has this been going on?

I could cry
Salty tears
Going on
How long has this been?
How long has this been going on?

Dear, when in your arms I creep
That divine rendezvous
Kiss me once, kiss me twice
Then once more, that makes thrice
Come on let's make it four

How long has this been?
How long has this been going on?
Going on

How long has this been going on?
Going on

How long has this been?
How long has this been?

'Neath the stars, at bazaars
Often I've had to caress men
Five or ten, dollars then, I'd collect from all those yes-menDon't be sad, I must add, that they meant no more than chess-men
Darling, can't you see?
'Twas for charity?
Though these lips have made slips, it was never really serious
Who'd have thought, I'd be caught in a state that's so delirious?I could cry
Salty tears
Where have i been all these years
Listen you, tell me do
How long has this been going on?What a kick
How I buzz
Boy, you click like no one does
Listen sweet, i repeat
How long has this been going on?Dear, when in your arms I creep
That divine rendezvous
Don’t wake me if i’m asleep
Let me dream that it’s trueKiss me once, kiss me twice
Then once more, that makes thrice
Come on lets make it four
What a break, for heaven’s sake
How long has this been going on?What a break, for heaven’s sake
How long has this been going on?

Carmen ! What an underrated beautiful jazz vocalist!

Carlton Baker II

Love this! And the Verve Remixed version is excellent, too.

Ann Carr

THE gold standard ! Play twice, or thrice - the last 4 bars, until you can sing along with Ms McRae note for note, eh?

Ann Carr

digs a track in your head deeper and deeper
