This is a love song. The lyrics start off with, "Come Fly With Me, let's fly let's fly away. If you can use, some exotic booze, there's a bar in far Bombay. Come Fly With Me, let's fly, let's fly away." Then the second verse says, "Come Fly With Me, let's float down to Peru. In llama land, there's a one-man band, and he'll toot his flute for you. Come on Fly With Me, let's take off in the blue. Then the bridge says, "Once I get you up there, where the air is rarified. We'll just glide starry-eyed. Once I get you up there, I'll be holding you so near, you may hear, Angels cheer, 'cause we're together."
Then the third verse says, "Weather-wise it's such a lovely day. You just say the word, and we'll beat the bird down to Acapulco Bay. It's perfect for a flying honeymoon they say, Come Fly With Me, let's fly, let's fly away." Then there is an instrumental break, then the bridge comes back, and then the third and final verse once again, with a tag at the end, and that's the song.
I love this song because it just has a great feel to it. It's fast paced, It's fun, and most importantly It's Frank Sinatra. I love Frank, and I love this song. This might be my favorite song by him, but if it is not in the top spot, then it is certainly in the top five.
I hope you enjoyed the song, and that it was a good choice. I had been waiting a while to highlight another Frank Sinatra song here on the blog. Last time I did so was the first ever Tune Tuesday, back as the fifth ever post on the blog, back in mid-November!
Again, I hope you enjoyed it, and next week I finally get to highlight a Beatles song on the blog, as I will be getting into the Valentine's Day Spirt with "All My Loving"!
Have you ever heard this song before? Should I do more Sinatra and Martin, and less newer music?
