my lyricsbox
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, I've 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 I'm burnin' to see
Those far away places, with the strange soundin' names,
Callin' . . . callin' . . . me . . .
