How Long Has This Been Going On?

Lyrics:Ira Gershwin
Music:George Gershwin

The song was publishe 1928.

"How Long Has This Been Going On?" was originally written
as a duet by George and Ira Gershwin for a Broadway show called Smarty.
It was a song for Adele Astaire and Jack Buchanan on the occasion
of their first kiss.
According to lyricist Ira Gershwin in his book Lyrics on Several Occasions,
the musical received a lukewarm reception at the Philadelphia preview.
Two weeks later the song was dropped from the show
and replaced by "He Loves and She Loves"
("not as good a song as the former," says Gershwin,
"but one that managed to get over.")




Neath the stars, at bazaars
Often I've had to caress men
Five or ten, dollars then, I'd collect from all those yes-men
Don'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 brought to a state that's so delirious?

I could cry salty tears
Where have I been all these years?
Little wow, tell me now
How long has this been goin' on?

There were chills up my spine
And some thrills I can't define
Listen sweet, I repeat
How long has this been goin' on?

Oh, I feel that I could melt
Into heaven I'm hurled
I know how Columbus 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 goin' on?

Kiss me twice, 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 goin' on?
