Castles in the Air Lyrics

“Castles In The Air” Lyrics Sung by Don McLean

Sing along to the video – the lyrics are below

And if she asks you why you can tell her that I told you
That I’m tired of Castles in the Air
I’ve got a dream I want the world to share an’ castle walls
Just leave me to despair,
Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky
A dream come true, I’ll live there ’til I die
I’m asking you, to say my last goodbye
The love we knew, ain’t worth another try.
Save me from all the trouble and the pain
I know I’m weak but I can’t face that girl again
Tell her the reasons why I can’t remain
Perhaps she’ll understand if you tell it to her plain
Oh, but how can words express the feel of sunlight
In the morning in the hills away from city strife
I need a country woman for my wife
I’m city born but I love the country life

For I will not be part of her Cocktail-Generation,

Partner’s Waltz,
Devoid of all romance
The music plays and everyone must dance
I’m bowing out, I need a second chance.

Save me from all the trouble and the pain
I know I’m weak but I can’t face that girl again
Tell her the reasons why I can’t remain
Perhaps she’ll understand if you tell it to her plain

And if she asks you why you can tell her that I told you
That I’m tired of Castles in the Air
I’ve got a dream I want the world to share an’ castle walls
Just lead me to despair

Facts About Castles in the Air Lyrics

Castles in the Air is a musical comedy, with a book and lyrics by Raymond Wilson Peck and music by Percy Wenrich (additional lyrics by R. Locke). The story concerns two young men, Monty Blair and John Brown, who mistake an exclusive Westchester resort for an inn. They decide to pretend to be nobility, and Monty introduces John as a Latvian prince. Evelyn’s uncle Philip decides to teach her a lesson about social climbing by taking her to Latvia, intending to expose John as an impostor. The plan backfires, though, because John really is a prince.

The musical opened on Broadway in the Selwyn Theatre on September 6, 1926. It moved to the Century Theatre on December 6, 1926. The production was directed by Frank S. Merlin and choreographed by John Boyle and Julian Mitchell. It starred J. Harold Murray as John and Vivienne Segal as Evelyn.

On June 29, 1927, a production opened in London, at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
