Find a song, despite iTunes search

“… Hands across the water!  (Water … )  hands across the sky! … dah, dah, DAH”

What a fun old song!  I’m going to download it on iTunes right now.  05 iTunes bad search

Nope.  It isn’t any of these.  What was the name of that song?  I’ve had good luck searching for songs by bits of lyrics with Google:10 Google lyrics search

Now back to iTunes with a working search term:20 iTunes good search
