Somewhere

Could you tell me the way to Somewhere —
Some where, Some where,
I have heard of a place called Somewhere —
But know not where it can be.
It makes no difference,
Whether or not
I go in dreams
Or trudge on foot:
Would you tell me the way to Somewhere,
The Somewhere meant for me.

There's a little old house in Somewhere —
Some where, Some where,
A queer little house, with a Cat and a Mouse —
Just room enough for three.
A kitchen, a larder,
A bin for bread,
A string of candles,
Or stars instead,
A table, a chair,
And a four-post bed —
There's room for us all in Somewhere,
For the Cat and the Mouse and Me.

Puss is called Skimme in Somewhere,
In Some where, Some where;
Miaou, miaou , in Somewhere,
S — K — I — M — M — E.
Miss Mouse is scarcely
One inch tall,
So she never needed
A name at all;
And though you call,
And call, and call,
There squeaks no answer,
Great or small —
Though her tail is a sight times longer
Than this is likely to be:

FOR

I want to be off to Somewhere,
To far, lone, lovely Somewhere,
No matter where Somewhere be.
It makes no difference
Whether or not
I go in dreams
Or trudge on foot,
Or this time to-morrow
How far I've got,
Summer or Winter,
Cold, or hot,
Where, or When,
Or Why, or What —
Please , tell me the way to Somewhere —
Some where, Some where;
Somewhere, Some where, Somewhere , SOMEWHERE —
The Somewhere meant for me!
