Fly Me To The Moon

 Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words) is one of my favorite songs I listened to in the 50s. My mom and dad listened to it a lot when it first hit the charts in 1954. The words and music are by Bart Howard. The key is Eb and played with a Bossa Nova beat. I can still hear Frank Sinatra sing it!

Am7             Dm7        G7                  Cmaj7 
Fly me to the moon, let me play amounst the stars, 
 
F7             Bm7/B5            E7/B9         Am7 
Let me see what spring is like on jupiter and mars, 
 
A7/B9 Dm7          G9       G7/B9   Cm9    Am7 
In   other words,    hold  my    hand! 
 
Am9  Dm7          G7         Fdim7  Cmaj7   Bm7  E7 
In   other words,    darling kiss   me! 
 
Am7                Dm7              G7           Cmaj7 
Fill my heart with song, and let me sing forever more 
 
F7           Bm7/B5         E7/B9      Am7 
you are all I long for all I worship & adore 
 
A7/B9       Dm7          G9        G7  Em7/B5

A7/B9       Dm7         Dm7/C  G7/B9   C6     Bm7  E7

Monday Music Quote: Diana Krall
 
 
"That's why these songs have lasted as long as they 
have because they're just about feelings that don't change. They are 
love songs, they are not specific, those kinds of feelings don't change."

Sarah Vaughn also recorded this song, along with many others. 
 
Enjoy,
