Dean Martin – Far Away Places lyrics

Far away places with strange sounding names

Far away over the sea

Those far away places with strange sounding names

Are calling, calling me

Going to China or maybe Siam

I want to 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 whistles of a train

I pray for the day I can get under way

And look for those castles in Spain

Oh they call me a dreamer

Well maybe I am

But I know that I'm burning to see

Those far away places with strange sounding names

Calling, calling me
