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

Well, your friends and their fancy persuasion
Don't admit that it's part of a scheme
But I can't help but have my suspicions
'Cause I ain't quite as dumb as I seem

Well, you said you was never intending
To break up our scene in this way
But there ain't any use in pretending
It could happen to us any day

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

How long and how long has this been going on?
How long and how long has this been going on?
How long, baby?

Oh, your friends and their gentle persuasion
Don't admit that it's part of a scheme
But I can't help but have my suspicions
'Cause I ain't quite as dumb as I seem

Well, you said you was never intending
To break up our scene in this way
But there ain't any use in pretending
It could happen to us any day

Tell me, honey
How long has this been going on?
How long has this been going on?

How long and how long has this been going on
Going on, going on?
How long has this been going on?

How long has this been going on
Going on, going on, going on?
How long, honey, oh, has this been going on?

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

You been treaten me mad, you been treaten me bad
And it's been going on, going on, going on
I ain't quite as dumb as I seem, I ain't quite the fool you mean
But it's been going on, going on, going on, going on
