Question ID: 244935
I want to find out who owns the copyright to the lyrics of Fly Me To
the Moon (In Other Words) by Bart Howard. I think it may be TRO
Songways, but I emailed them with no reply. I want to reproduce some
lyrics in an Australian novel.
I think the Australian agent may be Morton Music but have had no luck
contacting them so far. I am happy to pay $US20.
