Far Away Places

Those far away places with strange sounding names
Far away over the sea
Those far away places with the strange sounding names
Are calling, calling me

Going to China or maybe Siam
I wanna see for myself
Far away places I've been reading about
In a book that I took from a shelf.

I start getting restless whenever I hear
The whistle of a train
I pray for the day I can get under way
And look for those castles in Spain

They call me a dreamer well maybe I am
But I know that I'm burning to see
Far away places with the strange sounding names
Calling, calling me
