Fabulous Places

 


 


 

      There are so many

      Fabulous faraway places to see
      Such as Mexico, Sweden

      Hawaii, Japan and Capri
      There’s so many

      Exciting and wonderful places
      Mountains and jungles and desert oases
      Pleasant as home is
      It isn't what Rome is …
     

      So why stay there …
     

      When there are so many

      Fabulous faraway places to see
      Why should Spain and Tahiti and Rio

      Just be only names to you and me …

      I feel certain there’re people
      We'd be glad to know there
      So tell me why don't we

      Get up and just go there
      Go to those fabulous places …

     

      Where we long to be …


      Like Bangkok and Hong Kong and Paris and Venice
      Tokyo and Cairo and Lisbon and London
      Wonderful fabulous places

      We're longin’ to see.

      There are so many
      Simply incredible places to see
      When I think of the warm Caribbean
      I see a new world for you and me
      I'd give anything just to have

      One single day there
      And once we get there
      I know that we'll stay there
      Stay in those fabulous places …
     

      Where we long to be …
     

      Like Bangkok and Hong Kong and Paris and Venice
      Tokyo and Cairo and Lisbon and London
      Siam! Sienna! Vienna! Verona!
      Java! Jamaica! Bombay! Barcelona!
     

      Show me those fabulous … places …
      We're longin’ to see …
