Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wondring in the night
What were the chances wed be sharing love
Before the night was through.

Something in your eyes was so inviting,
Something in you smile was so exciting,
Something in my heart,
Told me I must have you.

Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment
When we said our first hello.
Little did we know
Love was just a glance away,
A warm embracing dance away and -

Ever since that night weve been together.
Lovers at first sight, in love forever.
It turned out so right,
For strangers in the night.

Ο Αμερικανός τραγουδιστής και ηθοποιός Francis Albert Sinatra (12 Δεκεμβρίου 1915 – 14 Μαΐου 1998) αγαπήθηκε από το κοινό για τα έξοχα τραγούδια του, αλλά δεν μπορεί να αμφισβητηθεί ότι υπήρξε κι ένας από τους μύθους του αμερικανικού κινηματογράφου. Υπήρξε φίλος με τον πρόεδρο των ΗΠΑ Τζον Κένεντι, ήταν μπλεγμένος με τη Μαφία, αλλά πάνω απ' όλα ήταν έναςε σπουδαίος τραγουδιστής.

Strangers on my flight,
turbans they're packin'.
Wonderin' if they might,
plan a hijacking.
They could pull a stunt,
before this flight is through.

Something's on their minds.
I saw them mutter.
What that in their hands?
Looks like box cutters,
I'm gonna kick some ass,
if they make a move.

Strangers on my flight.
Two smelly people,
and they're not talking right;
and in a moment,
I will grab a baseball bat;
and that will be that.
Swing like Joe DiMaggio,
and rip them both a new a-hole.

And if they pick a fight,
and try to screw us,
I'll punch out their lights,
just like Joe Louis.
It would feel so right,
for strangers on my flight.

Send those bastards to the moon....
