Leon The Gypsy’s Wife Liedtext

And where, where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?

I’ve heard all the wild reports, they can’t be right

But whose head is this she’s dancing with on the threshing floor?

Whose darkness deepens in her arms just a little more

And where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?

Where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?

Ahh, the silver knives are flashing in that tired old cafe

A ghost climbs on the table in bridal negligee

She says, „My body is the light, she says, My body is the way“

I raise my arm against it all and I catch the bride’s bouquet

So where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?

Where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?

It’s too early for the rainbow, too early for the dove

These are your final days, this is the darkness, this is the flood

And there is no man, there is no woman, can’t be touched

But you who come between them, you will surely be judged

So where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?

Where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?
