Once upon a mem'ry I kissed lips as sweet as honey
And lived in heaven with an angel for a little while
I knew love sweet and tender in a world of perfect slender
Once upon a mem'ry before he said goodbye
Once upon a mem'ry the love would never ever end
I have a love I know I'll never ever have again
A love like those read in fairy tales filled with joy and laughter
Oh but he ended it and it broke my heart and I'm proud forever after
(Once upon a mem'ry find a love beyond compare)

Oh then his sweet lips once the sweet lips know that heaven in his eyes
Turned then to a cold and distant stand
Gone is the love sweet and tender the world of heartache knows no splender
Oh but once once upon a mem'ry I knew love beyond compare
Yes once upon a mem'ry...
That was once upon a mem'ry
