🎶 COME FLY WITH US – 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…
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…..Frank Sinatra 1958
