Lyrics

A superbly performed, beautiful collection ~ By Request

Notes: ~ 'Bye, Bye, Birdie' and 'It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman!' are among the Broadway shows of Lee Adams and Charles Strouse. The two also had a brief entry on the Great White Way titled 'All American', and though it came and went without making much of a ripple in the season of 1962, 'Once Upon a Time', the love song from the show, remained behind. Unlike the Adams-Strouse hits 'Put On a Happy Face' and 'I Want To Be with You', it is a sad and poignant reminiscence of all the things that happened or might have happened in the long ago.
