Raggle Taggle Gipsies O

They came to town
They danced like clowns
their girls were dressed
in long white gowns
with plenty of money
and smiles of honey

with the raggle taggle gipsies o

With song and dance
so sweet it entrances
Curses were mixed
with honey like glances
Shutters were downed
As they pranced through the town

With the raggle taggle gipsies o

The gipsy girl was fair and sweet
Had bell’s and charms upon her feet
She danced before him
Swift and light, Love befell him
that fateful night

with the raggle taggle gispies o

They played so dark
They played so sweet
Their music fills the air
with exotic heat
They sang of love and slow burning kisses
Of thing that come alive
when a heart beat misses

With the raggle taggle gipsies o

To dark ravines
She took him down
The stickleback cried
As the sun goes down
Mermaids will drown
As the ships go down

With the raggle taggle gipsies o
