"Come Fly with Me" was a song first performed by Frank Sinatra on 20th century Earth.

Vic Fontaine performed the song in Vic's lounge in 2374 with Odo at the piano. (DS9: "His Way")

The song was composed in 1957 by Jimmy van Heusen, lyrics by Sammy Cahn, who also collaborated on "All the Way". It was the title track to Sinatra's eponymous 1958 album of songs simulating a trek to many Earth cities such as Chicago, London, and Paris.
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 154), the air travel described in the song was a metaphor for love.

Lyrics Edit

Note: Lyrics written as sung in (DS9: "His Way"), not necessarily as sung by Sinatra.

Come fly with me, 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, come fly, let's fly away

Come fly with me, let's take off to Peru
In llama land, there's a one man band
And he'll toot his flute for you
Come fly with me, let's take off in the blue

[Chorus]
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 – because were together

Weather wise it's such a lovely day
You just say the words, and we'll beat the birds
Down to Acapulco Bay
It's perfect, for a flying honeymoon – they say
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

[Chorus]

Weather wise it's such a lovely day
You just say the words, and we'll beat the birds
Down to Acapulco Bay
It's perfect, for a flying honeymoon – they say

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
Come fly with me; pack up, let's fly away
