Fly me to the moon


Fly me to the moon (Bart Howard) (Artist: Frank Sinatra, Count Basie)
Poets often use many words to say a simple thing.
It takes thought and time and rhyme to make a poem sing.
With music and words I’ve been playing.
For you I have written a song
To be sure that you’ll know what I’m saying,
I’ll translate as I go along.

Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby kiss me

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you
