Once upon a time the world was beautiful and fair. Once upon a time many years ago.

angiecrock:

Could you be looking for "When All the World Was Beautiful" written by Rolf Harris and recorded by Tom Jones?

SORRY

That should read "When the World was Beautiful". NO All in the title.

If so, I cannot locate them anywhere.

mp3 download here for a pound--two bucks--if it's the song you want.


About 60% of the way down the page.

This sounds familiar:



Once upon a time
The world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
How happy we were then
But
Once upon a time
Never comes again

Tony Bennett's voice, for sure, in my ear.
Possible the late Al Martino (played a part in The Godfather film).

I know nothing of who wrote the song.

Guess we'll never know what the OP had in mind.

More about the song in the post just before this one.

Authors: Lee Adams and Charles Strouse, written for
"All American," a 1962 Broadway musical.
The actor in the musical was Ray Bolger. And after him,
everybody, I mean EVERYBODY, recorded the song.



Once upon a time, a girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine and said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time,
very long ago

Once upon a hill, we sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time,
now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled her hair
How we always laughed as though tomorrow wasn't there
We were young and didn't have a care,
where did it go

Once upon a time, the world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours, how happy we were then
But somehow, once upon a time
never comes again
