So long Boss, knock 'em dead, don't worry 'bout a thing 
Wish that we could come along, we'd love to hear you sing
The limo's here, your bags are packed, the list is by the phone,
Me and Snake will watch your place and treat it like our own 

Look at all this liquor 
Look at all this food
It's only gonna go to waste 
We're not really being rude
But the good stuff's in his closet, I swear he wouldn't mind
Hell, we''ll just shoot the lock off, I do it all the time 

We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone 
The order of the sleepless knights will now assume the throne 
We ain't got no money, we ain't got no right 
But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight 

There's damsels in distress out there and we got all this beer
We'll free them from their condos and bring them over here
We'll show them his Gold Records 
We'll play his music loud
We'll party just like Bubba does
We'll do the old man proud 

We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right 
We're gypsies in the palace, and we're going wild tonight. 

He's the greatest guy to work for, man, he's really cool
Hey Snake, this party's getting dull, throw someone in the pool
Hey, let's all take our clothes off and form a conga line
 Watch out for that broken glass, hey Snake, we need more wine 

We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right 
We're gypsies in the palace and we're raising hell tonight, hey 

Oh, hi there Boss, what's goin' on?
You say you're coming when?
I'll send Snake to pick you tomorrow night at ten, okay 

 Everybody out of here, the show is closing down
We've got to find someone to clean this up,
He's coming back to town 

Hi there boss, we waxed your car, we raked and mowed 
your lawn
We couldn't find enough to do in the short time you
were gone 

Man it sure is peaceful here, you really got it all
If you ever hit the road again, give me and Snake 
a call 

We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone 
The order of the Sleepless Knights will now assume 
the throne 
We ain't got no money, we ain't got no right 
But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight 

Hello?
Hey, Jimmy, it's Glenn 
Glenn, How ya doing?
Fine man, I'm going on the road, do you know anyone who
 could house sit for me?
I got these two great guys that look after my place man,
they're the best.
