It's Been A Long, Long Time
#1

Need to get this one up on the music site. Here are the lyrics in the interim, and the story behind it.

 

It's Been A Long, Long Time

 

Kiss me once, then kiss me twice

Then kiss me once again.

It's been a long, long time.

Haven't felt like this, my dear

Since I can't remember when.

It's been a long, long time

 

You'll never know how many dreams

I've dreamed about you.

Or just how empty they all seemed without you.

So kiss me once, then kiss me twice

Then kiss me once again.

It's been a long, long time.

 

 

Ah, kiss me once, then kiss me twice

Then kiss me once again.

It's been a long time.

Haven't felt like this my dear

Since I can't remember when

It's been a long, long time.

You'll never know how many dreams

I dreamed about you.

Or just how empty they all seemed without you.

So kiss me once then kiss me twice

Then kiss me once again.

It's been a long, long time.

Long, long time.

 

Sammy Cahn, and Jule Styne

1945

 

Artist: Harry James and Kitty Kallen

 

 

World War II ended the month before

this Crosby recording hit No. 1 on

the Billboard charts in 1945.

Accompanied by Les Paul on the guitar,

Bing effectively captures the swelling

anticipation of Americans regarding the

imminent return of their

boys from overseas.

The song remained on the charts for 16 weeks.
