Lyrics: Once in awhile I am just human, With a heart that throbs and aches! Once in awhile I meet a true man, Who lives for honor's sake! Once in awhile I seem to remember, Things said to me at tryst; Once in awhile in sweet September, Once in awhile, awhile. Once in awhile, his dear eyes shining, Into my own as bright as starts; Once in awhile, ""For you I am pining For you I'd go to war."" Once in awhile he'll say ""I love you,"" Whispering low at the close of day, Once in while, I hope it's true, dear, Once in awhile, awhile.

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
