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,
Those far away places I’ve been reading about
In a book that I took from the shelf.
I start getting restless whenever I hear
The whistle of a train.
I pray for the day I can get underway,
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
Those far-away places with the strange sounding names,
Calling, calling me.
