In Other Words

In Other Words

When I saw Jim’s choice of theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday I instantly thought of a song synonymous with Frank Sinatra “Fly Me To The Moon”. Perhaps others will have thought of the very same song. But as I was preparing this post, I realized I do actually prefer Julie London’s recording of this track.

Can you believe that this song is 67 years old?!! Howard Bart apparently had been pursuing a career in music for twenty years when he came up with this track in around twenty minutes. It is a timeless classic that I don’t think we could ever tire of.

Credits: Howard Bart

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

In other words
Hold my hand
In other words
Darling, kiss me

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing forever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words
Please be true
In other words
I love you

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing forever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words
Please be true
In other words
I love you
