WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


NOTE:   Song has three voice parts (color-coded).

 


            I.  once in a novel,
                once in a film,
                you came along,
                you came along.
                once in a story
                once in a song,
                you came along,
                you came along.

       CHORUS:  once in my life,
                you came along.
                once in my life,
                you came along.

           II.  there was no reason,
                there was no rhyme
                'til you came along,
                you came along.
                there was no humor,
                no punchline
                'til you came along,
                you came along.

                (repeat chorus)

       BRIDGE:  you came along,
                you came along
                at the right time.
                you came along,
                you came along
                in my lifetime.

          III.  there were a million
                songs in my brain
                when you came along,
                you came along.
                now I know
                I know what they mean
                since you came along,
                you came along.
