Gypsy Song

Came upon a wand’rin’ gypsy
walking down a long and dusty road;
would she please to tell my fortune,
looked into my eyes as if they showed
every lonely mile and heavy load.

And she said the gypsy was in me,
was deep within me, I’d never ever settle down;
she said I’d travel, unravel
the high and byways, here a hero, there a clown,
wand’rin’ down.

Have you seen the gypsy wagons
roll across the land; they pay no mind
to the world or to each other,
only paying tolls and passing time.
Have you heard the wand’rin’ gypsies’ rhyme?

And they know the gypsy is in them,
is deep with within them, they’ll never ever settle down;
they know they’ll travel, unravel
the high and byways, here a hero, there a clown,
wand’rin’ down.

There are gypsies of the earth and
there are gypsies of the endless sky;
some may sparkle for a lifetime,
some may blaze but quickly fade and die.
Only gypsies, they and you and I.

And we know the gypsy is in us,
is deep within us, we’ll never ever settle down;
we know we’ll travel, unravel
the high and byways, every hero, every clown
wand’rin’ down.

See the gypsies wand’rin’ down…
every hero, every clown…
all the gypsies wand’rin’ down.
