You might like the gypsy life

There is nothing in my head today
Nothing awful there to ponder, or confuse me
Go ahead in what you have to say
And I will listen as I listen to the news

I know the whole truth there is horrible
It’s better if you take a little at a time
Too much and you are not portable
Not enough and you’ll be making happy rhymes

You might like the gypsy life
You judge your progress by the phases of the moon
Get your compass and your sharpest knife
‘Cause people will love you when they know you’re leaving soon

There is nothing in my head today
I’ll cross the river people, as I cross my heart
The pigeon bridges are a place to stay
I will go under as I try to do my part

You might like the gypsy life
You judge your progress by the phases of the moon
Get your compass and your sharpest knife
‘Cause people will love you when they know you’re leaving soon
