Gypsy Girl, my silhouette is stranded at your wagon door: 
I only ask that you come out and do your gypsy dance for me. 
Gypsy Girl, I've watched you from afar before,  
Come out and show me in your motions what to see. 
She said, "Play thou thine guitar for me, 
And yea, I just may dance for thee." 
And I played with passion I have never known before. 
 
Gypsy Girl, the moon is throwing colors everywhere, 
I only ask that you talk to me in your gypsy way. 
Gypsy Girl, I've heard that you are wise and fair, 
Come here and teach me in your wisdom what to say. 
She said, "Tell thou thine truths to me, 
And yea, I just may speak with thee." 
And I told her truths I did not even know I knew. 

          Gypsy, Gypsy, I've never known a girl like you before 
          My body is not new before tonight. 
          Your wagon window shines in all the candle's eyes 
          The door is dark 
          My body caught between the dark and light. 

Gypsy Girl, your body burns me by its heat, 
I only ask that you come and lay here naked in the dark.    
Gypsy Girl, our love can make this night complete, 
Come on out and join the man who wonders who you are. 
She said, "Give thou of thyself to me 
And yea, I just may give myself to thee." 
And we touched and laughed and danced and sang and played  
          all night.
