Tommy Dorsey – Once In Awhile lyrics
Once In A While
Tommy Dorsey
Written by Michael Edwards and Bud Green

Peaked at # 1 for 7 weeks in 1937
Competing version charted by Horace Heidt (#2)
Charted again in 1938 by Louis Armstrong (# 15)
Charted again in 1952 by Doris Day (#9)
Charted in 1961 as "Once In Awhile" by The Chimes at #11

Once in a while will you try to give one little thought to me
Though someone else maybe nearer your heart

Once in a while will you dream of the moments I shared with you,
Moments before we two drifted apart.

In love's smoldering ember, one spark may remain,
If love still can remember the spark may burn again.

I know that I'll be contented with yesterday's memory,
Knowing you think of me once in a while.
