LYRICS

Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine
And said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time
Very long ago

Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time
Now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled up her hair
How we always laughed as though tomorrow wasn’t there
We were young and didn’t have a care
Where did it go

Once upon a time
The world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
How happy we were then
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again

Once upon a time
Never comes again

  1. Have loved him since early 60s.He just keeps moving with the times.He always has.But he is always true to himself.This song is a heartbreaker.I loved it.Thank you for all of the music.It has been a huge source of pleasure in my life.Your music spoke to me when I was in high school, and is still speaking to me today.Even though this wasn’t your song.You put your own touch on this beautiful old standard.It brought tears to my eyes.
