It's a kind of optimistic escapism to sing along. I like the song every time I hear. Feb. 11,1914 is birthday of Matt Dennis, the writer of the tune. This time, let's listen to his happy song.
The song is most commonly associated with Frank Sinatra (who recorded it while he was a part of Tommy Dorsey's orchestra and later for his Come Fly with Me album), but many others have recorded it and it is considered a standard of traditional pop music.
I'm so tired of this dull routine Up to town on the 8:15 Back at night off to bed and then Get up and start it all over again
Let's take a boat to Bermuda Let's take a plane to Saint Paul. Let's take a kayak to Quincy or Nyack, Let's get away from it all.
Let's take a trip in a trailer No need to come back at all. Let's take a powder to Boston for chowder, Let's get away from it all.
We'll travel 'round from town to town, We'll visit ev'ry state. I'll repeat "I love you, sweet!" In all the forty-eight.
Let's go again to Niag'ra This time we'll look at the Fall. Let's leave our hut, dear, Get out of our rut, dear, Let's get away from it all.
