ONCE UPON A SUMMERTIME Michel Legrand (m) Johnny Mercer (l) as rec by Blossom Dearie (vocal & piano) w Ray Brown (bass) Mundell Lowe (guitar) & Ed Thigpen (drums) September 1958 Once upon a Summertime, if yoi recall, We stopped beside a little flower stall. A bunch of bright forget-me-nots was all I'd let you buy me. Once upon a Summertime, just like today, We laughed the happy afternoon away, And stole a kiss in every street cafe. You were sweeter than the blossoms on the tree, I was as proud as any girl could be, As if the mayor had offered me the key To Paris! Now another Wintertime has come and gone, The pigeons feeding in the square have flown, But I remember, wqhen the vespers chime, You love me once upon a Summertime. Now another Wintertime has come and gone, The pigeons feeding in the square have flown, But I remember, wqhen the vespers chime, You love me once upon a Summertime. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2011)
