(Dusty Springfield)

When you passed my way
It seemed my lucky day
The world was oh-so fine
Once upon a time

We walked for a little while
You smiled that special smile
And when we said goodnight
You held me oh-so tight

Then you found someone new
And I spent my nights alone
'Cause now we're through
There's nothing I can do
I gotta say forget
Forget him, forget him
'Cause he's no good, no, no

Now, when you pass my way
I guess I'll smile and say
To think that boy was mine
Once upon a time

To think that boy was mine
Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Woh, oh, once upon a time
No, no, no, no, no, once upon a time
