Perry Como – 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, 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. ..
