"Fly Me to the Moon", originally titled "In Other Words"  written in  1954 by Bart Howard a publisher tried to make him change some lyrics from "fly me to the moon" to "take me to the moon" but Howard refused to do this.

Many years later Howard commented that "... it took me 20 years to find out how to write a song in 20 minutes".

Frank Sinatra included the song on his 1964 album " It Might as Well Be  Swing ".

"Fly Me To The Moon" became closely associated with NASA's Apollo space program. A copy of the song was played on the Apollo 10 mission which orbited the moon. It became "the first music ever heard on the moon"  when played on a portable cassette player by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz  Aldrin after he stepped into the moon.   

Lyrics: Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On a-Jupiter and Mars  

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby, kiss me  

Fill my heart with song and
Let me sing forevermore
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore  

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

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing forevermore
You are all I long for
All I worship and I adore  

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