"Fly Me to the Moon" is a popular standard song written by Bart Howard in 1954. It was titled originally "In Other Words," and was introduced by Felicia Sanders in cabarets. The song became known popularly as "Fly Me to the Moon" from its first line, and after a few years the publishers changed the title to that officially.
