'Neath the stars, at bazaarsOften I've had to caress menFive 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 seriousWho'd have thought, I'd be brought to a state that's so delirious?
I could cry salty tearsWhere have I been all these years?Little wow, tell me nowHow long has this been goin' on?
There were chills up my spineAnd some thrills I can't defineListen sweet, I repeatHow long has this been goin' on?
Oh, I feel that I could meltInto heaven I'm hurledI know how Columbus feltFinding another world
Kiss me once, then once moreWhat a dunce I was beforeWhat a break, for heaven's sakeHow long has this been goin' on?
(Kiss me twice, once more, thrice, make it four)
What a break, for heaven's sakeHow long has this been goin' on?
