"One Time And One Time Only" lyrics - THE CHAD MITCHELL TRIO

"One Time And One Time Only"

I spent my hungry young years running wild
There was so much for me to do
And I spent cities like a handful of change
But I never quit looking for you

One time and one time only
Been such a long time lonely
One time for all time it will be
Been waiting such a long time
Each time has been the wrong time
Until you came to me

I looked for you in every face I saw
And could not find you any where
Then finally one day I quit trying at all
And looked up to see you standing there

I don't mind telling you what's on my mind
It's no big secret any more
I have no plans at all for moving on
That's one thing that I was never looking for
