Montell Jordan — Once Upon A Time lyrics

Well here is my story that I tell to you
You may not believe me but I swear it's true
I escaped to Havana for a getaway
In a tiny club with a cuban band on a Saturday

And that's when I saw her from across the room
Like something from a movie or a storybook
She had a short dress with curly hair and chocolate skin
That's how it all began

I remember when she came into my life
And all at once-upon-a-time
Love was in the air
Just like an ocean breeze
And we were dancing to the sweetest melodies
I held her in my arms until she danced into the night
It happened all at once-upon-a-time
Once upon a time

Hifuela mijo tell me what happened next

The next day I was walking to the marketplace
I passed by the cathedral so I stopped to pray
I imagined this journey without my friend
And just like an angel she appeared again
But before I could ask her why she had gone
The Padre started yelling that "She's the one"
And suddenly the Policia were everywhere with chaos in the air

I remember when she had to say goodbye
And all at once-upon-a-time
I could not believe they said she was a thief
And I stood there as they drove her away from me
And what was I to do, now they've accused her of a crime
It happened all at once-upon-a-time

I remember when I couldn't sleep that night
And all at once-upon-a-time
I had to find a way to bring her back to me
So I made a plan of how to set her free
And so tomorrow night, mi amore I will find
It happened all at once-upon-a-time
Once upon a time

So tell me, how did you get outta there?

He disguised himself in sheets
I waited for the guards to fall asleep
Snuck into the tower, took the keys
And then I told the girl, stick close to me
He was in a sword fight 'till the death
Everyone that watched just held their breath
And then he ran
I ran
Jumped
I jumped
Climbed
Faster and faster and faster

Guards, stop him! Don't let him get away, Guards!

I remember when she came back in my life
And all at once-upon-a-time
We made our getaway to another time and place
We were riding while the tears rolled down her face
She knows I can not stay so we'll say our goodbyes tonight
It happened all at once-upon-a-time

I remember when he came into my life
Love was in the air like an ocean breeze
Sweetest melodies
Until she danced into the night
It happened all at once-upon-a-time
Once upon a time
