Castle on a Cloud (from "Les Miserables")

play music pause music
mute music

Lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer.

There is a castle on a cloud
I like to go there in my sleep
Aren't any floors for me to sweep
Not in my castle on a cloud.

There is a room that's full of toys
There are a hundred boys and girls
Nobody shouts or talks too loud
Not in my castle on a cloud.

There is a lady all in white
Holds me and sings a lullaby
She's nice to see, and she's soft to touch
She says: 'Cosette I love you very much.'

I know a place where no one's lost
I know a place where no one cries
Crying at all is not allowed
Not in my castle on a cloud.


From the 1985 musical "Les Miserables," based on the Victor Hugo novel "Les Miserables (1862)."
