"Let's Get Away from It All" is a popular song with music by Matt Dennis and lyrics by Tom Adair, published in 1941.

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. By 1966 to 1969, The Supremes (Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson) Sing this song as a Medley with The Lady Is a Tramp of Rodgers and Hart Album in nightclubs like Copacabana in 1967 and Roostertail in 1966. The album for 1968, Live at London's Talk of the Town had the song included with the same medley.
