Pela noite adentro

O melhor a cantar uma das melhores

"Fly me to the Moon (in other words)"

Poets often use many words
To say a simple thing
But it takes thought and time and rhyme
To make a poem sing

With music and words I’ll be playin’
For you, I have written a song
To be sure that you know what I’m sayin’
I’ll translate as I go along

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Won’t you 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 forevermore
‘Cause you are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

C’mon, just take me to the moon and back

"Fly Me to the Moon" is a pop standard song written by Bart Howard in 1954. When introduced by Felicia Sanders on the cabaret circuit, it was originally titled "In Other Words". The song became popularly called "Fly Me to the Moon" from its first line, but it took a few years for the publishers to change the title officially.(...)
Tony Bennett recorded the song in 1965 and had a minor hit with it. In subsequent years through the 2000s, he often performed the song in concert without using any amplification or sound system.
