David Sabella Ok kiddies, and adults alike. I've never done this before but here it is my first studio wide assignment. Please read the lyrics below in Shirley's post. Do not listen to the song, do not look it up, do not read the music. Please come into the studio ready to act these words as a monologue. if you know the song already this may be very difficult for you. if you don't know the song do not listen to it. do not read the music. do not research it on youtube do not listen to it on the radio the only way that this assignment works is if you do not know anything about this song and you read these words as a monologue in what ever speed fashion inflection, and authenticity that you can muster. GO! And thank you Shirley for the inspiration. Here are the words - "Once in a while will you try to give one little thought to me, Though someone else may be nearer your heart. Once in a while will you dream of the moments I shared with you Moments before we two drifted apart. In love's smoldering ember, One spark may remain, If love can still remember, The spark may burn again. I know that I'll be contented with yesterday's memory, Knowing you think of me Once In A While."
