lovely lyrics: once upon a summertime

No comments

Once upon a summertime, if you recall
We stopped beside a little flower stall
A bunch of bright forget-me-nots was all
I’d let you buy me

Once upon a summertime just like today
We laughed the happy afternoon away
And stole a kiss in every street cafe

You were sweeter than the blossoms on the tree
I was as proud as any girl could be
As if the mayor had offered me the key
To Paris

Now, another winter time has come and gone
The pigeons feeding in the square have flown
But I remember when the vespers chimed
You loved me once upon a summertime

– lyrics by Johnny Mercer, 1958
