Where have you been?
I want to know, where have you been?
My life was a losing fight,
Till that lucky night, baby,
You happened in.

From what I had heard about love,
I thought it was all sorrow and sin,
But now that we meet at last,
I forget what's past, baby,
Where have you been?

I was a fool undefended,
In the depths of despair,
But out of the blue, you descended,
And somehow ended every care.

So, if you will give me a break,
And order the love scene to begin,
So close to your side I'll stay,
You can never say, baby,
Where, I wanna know where, have you been?
Baby, oh baby, where have you been?
