Fly me to the moon Let me play among the stars Let me see what spring is like On a-Jupiter and Mars In other words, hold my hand In other words, baby, kiss me Fill my heart with song And 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 (instrumental - first verse) 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, in other words I love you ******************************** as rec by Judy Garland w Orch cond by Mort Lindsey Sep 20th 1963 Poets often use many words to make a poem sing; It takes time and thought and rhyme to make a poem ring! With music and words I've been playing, For you I have written this song; Just to be sure you know what I'm saying, I'll translate as I go along. Fly me to the moon and let me live 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 for evermore, You are all I long worsip, all I long for and adore. In other words, please be true, In other words, I love you! Fill my heart with song and let me sing for evermore, You are all I long worsip, all I long for and adore. In other words, please be true, In other words, I love you!
