Once in a blue moon
 Something good comes along
Once in a blue moon
Everything's not going wrong
When you get weary  Beating on the same old gong
Once in a blue moon
 Someone like you comes along

Once every once in a while  Something comes along that feels just right 
Once every once in a while 
Just like switching on an electric light
And sometimes you try till you're blue in the face
But when you get that feeling 
Nothing's going to take its place 

Once in a blue moon
There's a thing called happiness 
It happens when you're in
A state of natural grace

When the wind is blowing 
All around the fence 
I get that happy feeling
 Things start making sense
All just feels so lucky 
That you just can't go wrong 
Once in a blue moon
 Someone like you comes along

Once in a blue moon
There's a thing called happiness 
It happens when you're in
A state of natural grace

When the grass is growing 
All around the fence 
And you get that happy feeling
 Everything starts making sense
And you get so lucky 
That you can't go wrong 

Once in a blue moon
 Something comes along 
Once in a blue moon
 Someone like you comes along
Once in a blue moon
 Something good comes along
Once in a blue moon
 Someone like you comes along
