COMES ONCE IN A LIFETIME From the Broadway Show "Subways Are For Sleeping" (1961) (Jule Styne / Betty Comden / Adolph Green) Sydney Chaplin & Carol Lawrence (Broadway Production) - 1961 Judy Garland - 1962 Carol Burnett - 1963 Also recorded by: Edmund Hockridge; Lester Lanin; Edmundo Ros; Dave Grusin; Percy Faith; Della Reece. Every day, just go along dawn till sundown Here's a rundown Every day that comes, comes once in a lifetime Take each day and gather the rosebuds in it Fill each minute Every day that comes, comes once in a lifetime Think of now, tomorrow is waiting in the wings Who knows what it brings While the future waits, the present swings Day to day, in Brooklyn or China 'cross the bay Only once comes this particular sky Only once these precious hours go by Only once in a lifetime the day comes by So live, live, live, live today Think of now, tomorrow is waiting in the wings Who knows what it brings While the future waits, the present swings From day to day, in Brooklyn or China 'cross the bay Only once comes this particular sky Only once these precious hours go by Only once in a lifetime a day comes by So live, live, live, come on and live today (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2005)
