1965 K





Just once in a lifetime,
A girl knows a moment.
One wonderful moment,
When fate takes his hand.

And this is my moment,
My once in a lifetime.
When I can explore,
A new and exciting land.

For once in a lifetime,
I feel like a giant.
I soar like an eagle,
As ‘tho I had wings.

For this is my moment,
My destiny calls me.
And ‘tho it maybe
Just once in a lifetime,
I’m gonna do great things.

    1. Sorry John , For the Delay in my Reply, But YES It was Doug Darnel’s Sister Who Designed [ THE CARDINAL SET ] She was also very Talented, THIS CONCERT WAS EVERYTHING AND MORE ,,, A DAME SHIRLEY FAN COULD ASK FOR , There’s, NO PLACE LIKE LONDON,, Who could have put that song over to have Given the Message after the I.R.A Bombings THAT LONDON was O.K For the TOURISTS to Visit the U.K , BUT DAME SHIRLEY, ? NO ONE ,
      SAD that it was Announced Yesterday that LYNDSEY DE PAUL who wrote that song For DAME SHIRLEY TO PROMOTE LONDON was Safe again,, DIED AT ONLY 66, R.I.P.
