Come Fly With Me

Album: Come Fly With Me (1958)
  • 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

    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 fly with me, let's take off in the blue

    Once I get you up there
    Where the air is rarefied
    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

    Weather-wise, it's such a lovely day
    Just say the words and we'll beat the birds
    Down to Acapulco Bay
    It is perfect for a flying honeymoon, they say
    Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

    Once I get you up there
    Where the air is rarefied
    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

    Weather-wise, it's such a lovely day
    You just say the words and we'll beat the birds
    Down to Acapulco Bay
    It's perfect for a flying honeymoon, they say
    Come fly with me, let's fly let's fly
    Pack up let's fly awayWriter/s: Jimmy Van Heusen, Sammy Cahn
