You've Been Gone Too Long Lyrics

by Nina Simone

You've been gone too long, you've been gone much too long
Baby I'm tellin' you, you've been gone too long

Now I've got a guy loves to stay home at night
He really knows how to treat me right

You've been gone too long, you've been gone too long
Baby I'm tellin' you, you've been gone too long

Now, you went out with Ruth and you know that's the truth
You went out with Flo, and she ain't so slow

Oh, you've been gone too long, you've been gone too long
Baby I'm tellin' you, you've been gone too long

Now let me tell you baby, don't you push me around
Just do yourself a favor and get out of town

You've been gone too long, yes, you've been gone too long
Baby I'm tellin' you, you've been gone too long
You've been gone too long, you've been gone much too long
