From nowhere through a caravan Around the campfire light A lovely woman in motion With hair as dark as night Her eyes were like that of a cat in the dark That hypnotized me with love She was a gypsy woman, She was a gypsy woman She danced around and round to a guitar melody From the fire her face was all aglow How she enchanted me Oh, how I'd like to hold her near And kiss and forever whisper in her ear I love you, gypsy woman I love you, gypsy woman All through the caravan She was dancing with all the men Waiting for the rising sun Everyone was having fun I hate to see the lady go Knowing she'll never know That I love her, I love her She was a gypsy woman a gypsy woman, a gypsy woman, a gypsy woman
