BEEN A LONG TIME- 8th Day- Composed By Shmuel Marcus- Brooklyn

——————————————
It’s been a long time
Since I watered your roses
It’s been a long time
Since I spoke of Moses
It’s been a long time
Since I flew to ya
It’s been a long time
Since I said Halelukah.
——————————————
But does that make me
Not your soldier
Don’t I have your golden gun
…Am I not your son.
——————————————
It’s been a long time
Since I rode in your limo
It’s been a long time
Since I drank with Pinto
It’s been a long time
Since I sang to ya
It’s been a long time
Since I said Halelukah.
——————————————
But does that make me
Not your brother
Don’t I have your very gun
…Am I no more fun?
——————————————
If you believe
It’s Am Yisrael Chai
So let your heart lead
‘Cause Am Yisrael Chai.
If your phone rings
It’s Am Yisrael Chai
So get up and sing
‘Cause Am Yisrael Chai.

And if you believe
It’s Am Yisrael Chai
So let your heart lead
‘Cause Am Yisrael Chai.
If your phone rings
It’s Am Yisrael Chai
So get up and sing
‘Cause Am Yisrael Chai.

It’s been a long time

It’s been a long time
Since I flew to ya
It’s been a long time
Since I said Halelukah.

But does that make me
Not your soldier
Don’t I have your very gun (?)
…Am I number one?
——————————————
If you believe
It’s Am Yisrael Chai
So let your heart lead
‘Cause Am Yisrael Chai.
If your phone rings
It’s Am Yisrael Chai
So get up and sing
‘Cause Am Yisrael Chai.

And if you believe
It’s Am Yisrael Chai
So let your heart lead
‘Cause Am Yisrael Chai.
If your phone rings
It’s Am Yisrael Chai
So get up and sing
‘Cause Am Yisrael Chai.
