Lyrics of Once Upon a Long Ago

Picking up scales and broken chords
Puppy dog tails in the House of Lords
Tell me darling, what can it mean?

Making up moons in a minor key
What have those tunes got to do with me?
Tell me darling, where have you been?

Once upon a long ago
Children searched for treasure
Nature's plan went hand in hand
With pleasure, such pleasure

Blowing balloons on a windy day
Desolate dunes with a lot to say
Tell me darling, what have you seen?

Once upon a long ago
Children searched for treasure
Nature's plan went hand in hand
With pleasure, my pleasure

Playing guitars on an empty stage
Counting the bars of an iron cage
Tell me darling, what can it mean?

Picking up scales and broken chords
Puppy dog tails in the House of Lords
Help me darling, what does it mean?

Once upon a long ago

'Once Upon a Long Ago' is a Paul McCartney song, released as his fortieth single on November 1987, as part of his compilation 'All the Best!', released two weeks before the single. The track was produced by Phil Ramone and mixed by George Martin, and features violin by Nigel Kennedy.

The single reached number ten in the UK Singles Chart, McCartney's last Top 10 in his homeland. In the U.S., the single was not released, and even not included on the local version of 'All the Best'. The song remained unreleased in the U.S. until 1993, when it was included on an extended version on 'The Paul McCartney Collection' edition of 'Press to Play'. The B-side for the British single, 'Back on My Feet', written by McCartney and Elvis Costello, was included on 'The Paul McCartney Collection' edition of 'Flowers in the Dirt'.
