How Long Is Too Long
The Partridge Family Lyrics


You tell me you are through with him
You'll soon be free just to be with me
So I'll stay by the phone

I'm waiting every night at home
Watching TV shows and honey
Heaven knows, I'm always alone

Though you never call me, I keep on loving you
Hoping that if I do, you're gonna love me too
And I won't have to wait too long

But how long is too long?
I've got to know, you're making me lose my mind
How long is too long?
'Cause baby, I've been waiting a long, long time

How long for so long?
Hoping everything will turn out okay, so tell me
How long is too long?
To sit around and wait till you come my way

I see you walking around with him
Holding hands and making plans
You're never apart

I see the way you look at him
When you're in a crowd, I know it makes him proud
While it's breaking my heart

And all the time you tell me
I keep on loving you
And if I do, you're gonna love me too
And I won't have to wait too long

But how long is too long?
Got to know, you're making me lose my mind
How long is too long?
'Cause baby, I've been waiting a long, long time

How long for so long?
Hoping everything will turn out okay, so tell me
How long is too long?
To sit around and wait till you come my way

How long, how long is too long?
How long? How long?

How long is too long?
I've got to know, you're making me lose my mind
How long is too long?
'Cause baby, I've been waiting a long, long time

How long for so long?
Hoping everything will turn out okay, so tell me
How long is too long?
To sit around and wait till you come my way

How long is too long?
I've got to know, you're making me lose my mind
How long is too long?

David was perfect in looks and voice, unlike all the contrived clones in the music industry today, David had the boy next door yet unique image. what a great talent. gone but lives on in our hearts forever. x

Cameo Stacy

Yes! I miss him dearly

"How Long Is Too Long" Forever ~ Love it!  Little Brian, is really good at acting playing the drums. Love the start of the song with that ooooh, and dadada! Beautiful song and David Cassidy sings so sweetly.<3

Funny you should say that, because I thought exactly that for the first time, watching this video. Very clever for a youngster.

MaryLou Nelson

The PF songs were great productions.. David's voice here is smooth like honey down the throat. He looks tired, but still great.

Patrice Marie

They worked him ragged doing the show, the albums for the show as well as his solo albums and the weekend touring. He was always exhausted

Nadine Colbath

Amazing how the family could lip sync to all these songs!!!!! They were in step with every song and didn't miss a beat!!! I read somewhere that the family weren't singing the songs and they all lip synced except for David. They did a great job!!! I love the generation I grew up in!!!! Our music was the BEST!!!!!

I definitely agree that the 70s had the very best music of all time. I was born in the 60s and was a teenager during the 70s. I can never forget the decade of the 70s. ❤️❤️❤️
