One of my favorite movies when I was young was "Dr. Doolittle." It contains a song that I have obviously taken to heart: "Fabulous Places" by Leslie Bricusse.
(Double-click on the photos for a link to fun facts about the locations.)
"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?
Like Bangkok, Hong Kong, Paris and Venice, Tokyo and Cairo and Lisbon and London. Wonderful, fabulous places we're longing to see.
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."
When there are so many fabulous faraway places to see. Why should Spain and Tahiti 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.
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.
