Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  


Notes: by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1967 by the author. From page 90 of the collection "Inscriptions on a Ginger Jar," printed in the songbook The Muse of Parker Street.

I cannot see far.
Nightclub candles outshine a star.
The line of neon signs at play
Outshines the Milky Way.
