How Long

Phyllis Hyman

Get away from me

How long [has this been going on]
How long
Baby 1, 2, 3
How long
How long [has the been going on, baby]

What’s your problem
You ain’t getting enough from me
I ain’t crazy
I got the 411 you see
People talking
Telling me I’m living in a make believe
Huh, ho

What’s the matter
You ain’t man enough to face the truth
Don’t chit and chatter
You’re out the door
Its over for you
I’ve learned my lesson
Don’t give my heart to no fool
But just for the record

CHORUS
How long
How long [has the been going on]
I wanna know
How long [you been doing me wrong]
How long [has the been going on]
How long [you been doing me wrong]
Oh
Get away from me

If you’re thinking that you’ve pulled the plug on me
I’m the one whose singing for the world to see
I can pick and choose from an assortment of masculinity
But just for the record
How long

CHORUS
How long, oh
How long [has the been going on]
I wanna know, hey, hey
How long [you been doing me wrong]
How long [has the been going on]
How long [you been doing me wrong]

It’s a mere known fact
I’m not sweet like I used to be
I finally learned
Only I change my history
And I’m giving you your walking papers, baby
Oh, hey, hey,hey
But just for the record
How long

CHORUS
How long, ooh baby [has the been going on]
Will you talk to me
How long [you been doing me wrong]
How long [has the been going on]
How long hey baby [you been doing me wrong]

Base
I need to know
Base
Can you tell me why
Base

Oh how long, long, hey, hey, hey
How long [has the been going on]
I wanna know
How long [you been doing me wrong]
How long [has the been going on]
How long [you been doing me wrong]

CHORUS
How long [has the been going on]
I wanna know right now
How long [you been doing me wrong]
How long [has the been going on]
How long [you been doing me wrong]

CHORUS
How long, baby [has the been going on]
How long [you been doing me wrong]
I need to know
How long [has the been going on]
How long [you been doing me wrong]

Too late darling
Can you tell me why
I make the rules here
And you can’t stay
Just go away child
You got to go now
