With this sheet music, you can play the famous jazz / pop standard "For Once in My Life" on piano!

It's a playable, beautiful piano arrangement which contains the full melody, so it makes for a perfect instrumental (piano solo) cover.

Of course, you can also use this piano arrangement to accompany a singer, or sing along yourself - this sheet music includes a system for the singer, as well as the song's full lyrics!

Written by Ron Miller and Orlando Murden for Motown Records, it was first recorded in the mid-60s by Connie Haines and Jean DuShon.

Stevie Wonder recorded it as the title track for hit 1967 album, and it became a huge hit!

Other famous versions were recorded by Frank Sinatra, The Temptations, Diana Ross, Tony Bennett, and Michael Bublé.

Today, "For Once in My Life" is a popular jazz standard / pop standard, and it's a fantastic song to play on the piano!

Here are the song's famous lyrics:

For once in my life
I have someone who needs me
Someone I have needed so long
For once unafraid
I can go where life leads me
And somehow I know I'll be strong

For once I can touch
What my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Would make my dreams come true

For once in my life
I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it's hurt me before
For once I have something
I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore

For once I can say
"This is mine, you can't take it"
Long as I know I have love
I can make it
For once in my life
I have someone who needs me
