Supper Club Favorites ~ 1953 Long Play Version
Far Away Places
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 . . .
