Once In A Lifetime

Chas Cochran - © 2003 BMI

Once in a lifetime,
A love like this comes along,
Once in a lifetime,
A love so pure and strong.
Once in a lifetime,
A love worthy of a song...

Sweet to the heartbeat,
Sweet, sweet, sweet to the bone.
Improves circulation,
Scientifically shown...
Good for the spirit,
Beats being alone.

It's a hard, hard, life,
Of that there can be no doubt.
Ain't a whole lot,
Worth singing about...
With that once in a lifetime love,
It can turn the tide...
Get you back on your feet,
Face the world with a friend at your side...

Once in a lifetime,
You just might get a break,
Once in a lifetime,
There can be no mistake,
Once in a lifetime,
That's all it takes...

It's a hard, hard life,
Beat you up black and blue,
It'll knock you down,
Kick the breath out of you.
Keep your chin up, boy,
Got some words that'll give you some hope...
That once in a lifetime love,
It can help you to cope.

Once in a lifetime,
You just might get a break,
Once in a lifetime,
There can be no mistake,
Once in a lifetime,
That's all it takes...
