Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Morrison Building, U.C.

Notes: by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1967 by the author. From page 86 of the collection "Inscriptions on a Ginger Jar," printed in the songbook The Muse of Parker Street.

Twinkles, tinkles, runs and bloops,
     Bits of themes and airs,
Drift around the library
     And up and down the stairs.

New cut lasses, crew cut lads
     Pass with pleasant stares--
Their heads are full of bloops and runs,
     Twinkles, themes and airs.
