The Andrews Sisters were a highly successful close harmony singing group of the swing and boogie-woogie eras. The group consisted of three sisters: contralto LaVerne Sophia Andrews (July 6, 1911 -- May 8, 1967), soprano Maxene Angelyn Andrews (January 3, 1916 -- October 21, 1995), and mezzo-soprano Patricia Marie "Patty" Andrews (born February 16, 1918). Their career as a group spanned over 42 years and they produced major hits in a great variety of music styles. Their 1941 hit "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" can be considered an early example of rhythm and blues. The Andrews Sisters' harmonies and songs are still influential today, and have been covered by entertainers such as Bette Midler, The Puppini Sisters, Christina Aguilera and The Three Belles. The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998.
"Have I Told You Lately that I Love You?" is a popular song written by Scotty Wiseman and published in 1945. It was the greatest hit of Wiseman and his wife and one of the first country music songs to attract major attention in the pop music field.
The Andrews Sisters and Bing Crosby released their version of the song in 1950, and it hit number 24 on the US charts.
Have I told you lately that I love you?
Could I tell you once again somehow?
Have I told with all my heart and soul how I adore you?
Well darling' I'm telling you now
This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I'm no good without you anyhow
Dear have I told you lately that I love you?
Well darlin', I'm tellin' you now.
