Intro: Am  F  E  Am

Am         E  F   Dm  E  Am
There is a castle on  a  cloud

Am        G              C
I like to go there in my sleep

Dm         C          E  E   F
Aren't any floors for me to  sweep

Dm        E           Am
Not in my castle on a cloud

Am         E    F      Dm   E  Am
There is a room that's full of toys

Am        G                C
There are hundred girls and boys

Dm     C         E     E   F
Nobody shouts or talks too loud

Dm        E           Am
Not in my castle on a cloud

F               C
There is a lady all in white

F                    C
Holds me and sings a lullaby

      Bb                    F
She's nice to see and she's soft to touch

    E  
She says, " Cosette, I love you very much."

Am       E     F     Dm  E     Am
I know a place where no  one's lost

Am       G                  C
I know a place where no one cries

Dm        C      E   E  F
Crying at all is not al-lowed

Dm        E           Am
Not in my castle on a cloud

    I love this song so much but the lyric is boys and girls as weird as that is.

      I’m pretty sure that the lyrics are correct. Because toys and boys rhyme, even though in normal conversations we say boys and girls.

      • no it’s 100% boys and girls, I used to sing this as my go-to audition song as a young girl and I had to drill that lyric into my head because logically It should be “girls and boys” since It rhymes, but it’s just not.
