adrift in a place
where the boys know their faces
and the smoke of the bars
hides their eyes
they could be who you wanted
without any traces

then they’d dance at the Castleton
high on a hill
or wait
by the Silver Lake side
Starlight Kitty and Moonlight Nell
Come on boys let’s go for a ride


Well they walked everywhere
And the women would stare
As they walked hand-in-hand
Through the streets
And they welcomed the night
When the flicker of gaslight
Made them both beauties to see

(chorus)
