Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Lost Children Street

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1967 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1995.

Go through the mountain, through the mountain,
After the door has closed behind you,
You'll find the city that you seek, oh yes,
And Lost Children Street, oh yes,

Lost, lost, lost to me,
The baby that I held to me,
Now in gypsy clothes
With the booted feet,
Walking on Lost Children Street.

The little girl who left you crying,
The boy who slipped out in the night time,
You'll find them walking side by side, oh yes,
In Lost Children Street, oh yes.


You'll move invisible among them,
They, carried by in an enchantment,
Wild faces, wild and sure and sweet, oh yes,
In Lost Children Street, oh yes.
