Gypsy

by Uriah Heep

Uriah Heep is a 70s hard rock band named after a fictional character created by Charles Dickens in his novel David Copperfield. They are known for their songs Easy Livin' and The Wizard.




Was only seventeen
I fell in love with a gypsy queen
She told me "hold on"
Her father was the leading man
Said "you're not welcome on our land"
And then as a foe, he told me to go

He took me to a little shack
And put a whip across my back
Then told her "leave me"
I was out for quite a time
Came back with her on my mind
Sweet little girl
She means all the world

Ah

Oh, I want my gypsy queen
Will she still be torn between
Her father and lover
One day I will go to him
Strong enough to fight and win
The kind of a man
That he'll understand

Ah 
Ah 
Ah
