INTRO

My father was a captain of a gypsy tribe, you know
My mother, she gave me some counting to do
With a knapsack on my shoulder, I'll bid you all farewell
I'll take a trip to London, some fortunes to tell
Some fortunes to tell, some fortunes to tell
I'll take a trip to London, some fortunes to tell

As I went a-walking, all down the London streets
A handsome young lawyer was the first I chanced to meet
Was the first I chanced to meet, was the first I chanced to meet
A handsome young lawyer was the first I chanced to meet

He viewed my pretty little brown cheeks, was the ones he loved so well
Says, "You, a little gypsy girl, will you my fortune tell?
Will you my fortune tell, will you my fortune tell?
You are a little gypsy girl, will a-you my fortune tell?"

"Oh yes, sir, oh please, sir, hold out to me your hand.
You have a many fine fortunes in a far-off distant land.
In a far-off distant land, in a far-off distant land,
You have a many fine fortunes in a far-off distant land."

"You've courted many fair ladies, but you've laid them all aside.
And I'm a little gypsy girl, I'm the one to be your bride.
I'm the one to be your bride, I'm the one to be your bride,
I'm a little gypsy girl, I'm the one to be your bride."

He took me, he led me to his house on yonder's shore
While servants stood waiting, to open wide the door
To open wide the door, to open wide the door
While servants stood waiting to open wide the door

The bells, they did ring and the music, it did play
It was a celebration of a gypsy's wedding day
Of a gypsy's wedding day, of a gypsy's wedding day
It was a celebration of a gypsy's wedding day

Oh, oncet I was a gypsy girl, but now I'm a rich man's bride
With servants to wait on me while in my carriage ride
While in my carriage ride, while in my carriage ride
With servants to wait on me while in my carriage ride
