“Just Once in My Life” Lyrics

There’s a lot of things I want
A lot of things that I’d like to be
But girl, I don’t foresee
A rags to riches story for me

There’s just one little dream
I’ve got to make come true
There’s just one round I’ve got to win
I can’t be a loser with you

And baby, baby
Just once in my life
Let me get what I want
Girl, don’t let me down
Just once in my life
Let me hold on to
This good thing I’ve found
Don’t let me down

Baby, say that you’ll be staying
’Cause I couldn’t face the day
If you want to keep by my side
And if you run away, then I’d be left without any pride

I’ve given up on schemes
’Cause every one fell through
I’ve given up so many things
Don’t ask me to give up on you

And baby, baby
Just once in my life
Let me get what I want
Girl, don’t let me down
Just once in my life
Let me hold on to
This good thing I’ve found
Don’t let me down

Baby, say that you’ll be staying, yeah
Hoo, hoo
That old pot of gold ain’t so easy to find
But if you stand by me
Girl, I’ll keep peace of mind

I can’t give you the world
But I will work hard for you, girl
Yes, I work hard all my life
If you won’t leave me
Please, don’t leave me
Just do this for me, baby

Once in my life
Let me get what I want
Girl, don’t let me down
Just once in my life
Let me hold on to
This good thing I’ve found
Don’t let me down

Baby, say that you’ll be staying
Hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
