So Long Oo-Long (How Long You Gonna Be Gone)
By Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby
Waterson, Berlin and Snyder Co.
47th St. and Broadway
Ming Toy loved a boy, Happy little Japanee; Oo-long
was his name, Set her heart a flame. One day he say,
"Soon I gotta go away;" When he leave Ming Toy grieve;
Everybody hear her say:
Days fly quickly by, Turning into lonely years; Tho'
the nights are long, Ming Toy's faith is strong. She
kneels and feels, That she doesn't pray in vain; Whispers
"Oo I love you, Ming Toy wants you back again."
"So long! Oo-long, how long you gonna be gone?
Your little Japanee, Will be waiting underneath the
bamboo tree; So don't be too long, Oo-long I'll long while
you're away Waiting for the day when you'll come back
to me. I'll sit and sigh, 'Neath the Oriental sky, Each day
that I am left a lone In Naki Saki. So long! Oo-Long,
How long you goin' to roam? Please don't be too long
Oo-long, so long hurry back home."
