Far Away Places lyrics

Far away places, with strange soundin names,
Far away over the sea . . .
Those far away places, with the strange soundin names,
Are callin, callin me . . .

Goin to china or maybe siam,
I wanna see for myself . . .
Those far away places, Ive been readin about,
In a book that I took from a shelf . . .

I start gettin 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 Im burnin to see
Those far away places, with the strange soundin names,
Callin . . . callin . . . me . . .
