Once Upon A Time Lee Adams and Charles Strouse, from All American, Rochell & the Candles with Johnny Wyatt (#26 in 1961)

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 through 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
