  • 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. Writer/s: Jule Styne, Sammy Cahn
