IT'S NICE TO GO TRAV'LING Album : Come Fly With Me - 1958 (Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen) Recorded by : David Newton; Frank Sinatra; Si Zentner & His Orch. It's very nice to go trav'lin' To Paris, London, and Rome It's oh, so nice to go trav'lin' But it's so much nicer, Yes, it's so much nicer to come home It's very nice to just wander The camel route to Iraq It's oh, so nice to just wander But it's so much nicer, Yes it's oh, so nice to wander back The mam'selles and frauleins, And the senoritas are sweet But they can't compete 'Cause they just don't have What the models have on Madison Ave. It's very nice to be footloose, With just a toothbrush and comb It's oh, so nice to be footloose But your heart starts singin' When you're homeward wingin' 'cross the foam And you know your fate is Where the Empire State is All you contemplate is the view From Miss Liberty's dome It's very nice to go trav'lin', But it's oh, so nice to come home You will find the maedchen And the gay muchachas are rare But they can't compare with that sexy line That parades each day at Sunset and Vine It's quite the life to play gypsy, And roam as Gypsies will roam It's quite the life to play gypsy But your heart starts singin' When you're homeward wingin' 'cross the foam And the Hudson River Makes you start to quiver Like the latest flivver That's simply drippin' with chrome It's very nice to go trav'ling But it's oh, so nice to come home No more Customs Burn the passport No more packin' And unpackin' Light the home fires Get my slippers Make a pizza (Contributed by Nancy - August 2004)
