Once in a Lifetime was the Estonian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2000 in Stockholm performed by Eda-Ines Etti, otherwise known as Ines. It is an up-tempo type of song, compared to most of the other songs in the contest. The song was about Ines taking life seriously, as she is "seventeen only, once in a lifetime", although she was 18 when performing the song.

It was performed fourth on the night of the Contest, following the United Kingdom and preceding France.  At the close of voting, it finished in 4th place with 98 points.

Lyrics

I don't wish I could turn back time, I can move the mountains higher than high
Don't look back, hold on to your spirit, keep moving every minute
I know it seems a little premature to live for the moment, I'm just a girl
Don't look back, hold on to your spirit, keep moving every minute
What you give is what you get - there ain't no regrets

If you give me wings and reason why, then I'll be an angel in your sky
Because I'm seventeen only once in a lifetime
Read my mind

I'm ready, why are you standing still?
Are you coming with me? - I know you will
We can search the world together, come on, baby, now or never
What you give is what you get - there ain't no regrets

If you give me wings and reason why, then I'll be an angel in your sky
Because I'm seventeen only once in a lifetime
Read my mind

If you give me wings and reason why, then I'll be an angel in your sky
Because I'm seventeen only once in a lifetime
Read my mind

I believe there's a better place always somewhere else instead
I believe the grass is greener if I chase the magic no one else can find
(The magic no one else can find)

If you give me wings and reason why, then I'll be an angel in your sky
Because I'm seventeen only once in a lifetime
Read my mind

If you give me wings and reason why, then I'll be an angel in your sky
Because I'm seventeen only once in a lifetime
Read my mind

Because I'm seventeen only once in a lifetime
