• fly ⪢⪢
_____ me to the moon. 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, baby, kiss me.

This song was written by Bart Howard in 1954. And it was first name, 'In Other Words', and for some reason it didn't take off at all. But in 1962 it was renamed the first five words of the lyric, 'fly
me to the moon'. And it was an overnight success.
• Somewhere beyond the sea, ⪢⪢
somewhere waiting for me, my lover stands on golden sands and watches the ships that go sailing.
Somewhere beyond the sea, she's there watching for me.
If I could fly
like birds on high, then, straight to her arms, I'd go sailing.
