"Once Upon a Summertime" as written by Eddie Barclay, Michel Jean Legrand, Eddy Marnay and J. Mercer....
Once upon a summertime, if you recall
We stopped beside a little flower store
A bunch of bright forget-me-nots
Was all you'd let me buy you

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 possums in the trees
I was as proud as any man could be
As if the mayor handed me the key to Paris

Now, another wintertime 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

Now, another wintertime 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
