(J. Mercer, E. Marnay, M. Legrand & E. Barclay)

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 blossom on the trees
I was as proud as any girl could be
As if the major had offered me the key, 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 chime
You loved me once upon a summertime
Tous les lilas, tous les lilas de mai
N'en finiront, n'en finiront jamais
De faire la fete du coeur
Des jeunes qui s'aiment
S'aiment, s'aiment
Now another wintertime has come and gone
The pigeons feeding in the square have flown
But I remember when the vespers chime
You loved me once upon a summertime...
