Darin, Bobby - Fabulous Places Lyrics




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...

  1. Philip Glassmeyer

    I've been searching for this song forever I knew it existed but could never find the audio track! What album is this from!?

  2. Johnny Koutsoubos

    There are so many fabulous far away places to see
    Such as Mexico, Sweden, Hawaii, Japan and Capri
    There are so many exciting and wonderful places
    Mountains and jungles, deserts and 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's people we'd be glad to know there
    So tell me why don't we get up and go there
    Go to those fabulous places where we long to be
    Like Bangkok, Hong Kong, Paris and Venice
    Tokyo and Cairo and Lisbon and London
    Wonderful fabulous places we're longing 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, Hong Kong, 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 longing to see

    Bobby Darin *did* sing “fabulous places”. I’ve heard Spacey’s version and this doesn’t sound like Spacey to me. Thoughts?

  4. Akira Watanabe

    I wanna fly somewhere listening this song!

  5. taylor goodman

    I listen to this whenever I’m flying United Airlines.

  6. Terri Robison

    Listening to this I believe the first part is Kevin Spacey from the Movie and it is cut at mark 1:25 where Bobby Darin sings. Definite difference in their voices and you can't mistake Bobby's voice....

    SukeyTawdry06

    Terri Robison hi! do check out his other songs - am sure you'll like his music a lot more :-)

  7. SukeyTawdry06

    'enjoyed this!! FANTASTIC VOICE by the Master of Swing!!!

  8. LA Wible

    This IS Spacey, sorry 'My'. Oh well, it is still a great song.

    John OzLocks

    Sorry LA Wible

    But this is 110% Bobby Darin, if you’re a hardcore Bobby Darin fan then you will most certainly hear his tone and timbre, and that my friend is Bobby Darin!

  10. Maggie Fanning

    I love this songMy Maggie

  11. Karl Seaton

    This isn't Bobby Darin. This is Kevin Spacey singing it as a cover from the 2004 movie "Beyond The Sea"

    Ben Macri

    @Karl Seaton Very similar though so don't worry about it. Tough to tell the difference.

    Karl Seaton

    @Ben Macri It's amazing how similar they sound, Spacey also has the likeness of Darin.
