Translations of "once upon the time"
"once upon the time" in lyrics
Once upon the time there was a painter
He had a little house and canvas
But he loved an actress
who loved flowers
He then sold his home
Sold his paintings and his shelter
Believe me I can fly, I'm proud that I can fly
To give the best of mine, the heaven's in the sky
Stars in the sky, wishing once upon the time.
Give me love, make me smile, 'till the end of life.
Hold me up, hold me tights, lift me up to touch the sky.
