Let's Get Away from It All

Lyrics:Tom Adair
Music:Matt Dennis

The song was publishe 1941.

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.
