Bobby Darin sings Once Upon A Time

Gosh, songs like this always make me so sad...especially when I know the backstory. It's the equivalent of Frank singing I'm A Fool To Want You.

But, Bobby singing Once Upon A Time is particularly tragic to me, because I love both Bobby and Sandra so much!

Anyways, the below clip was a from a live television special filmed in London. It was broadcast just two months after their divorce was finalized!

Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine,
And said she loved me so...
But that was once upon a time...
Very long ago

Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars
And waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time,
Now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed
As though tomorrow wasn't there...
We were young
And didn't have a care
Where did it go?

Once upon a time
the world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again....
