Is there no room in your gypsy heart
Where a woman's love might lie
Warm and sheltered, your prize and song,
As you wander beneath the sky ?
No, for you say, " I '11 carry no weight,
I must be free, be free;
I '11 carry no love in my gypsy heart
To make a drag for me."
Little you know, then, love is the cloak
That shelters you from the storm;
Love makes the shoes for your gypsy feet,
Love is your coat so warm.
Though you take no purse and you take no
You cannot escape the load
Of a woman's longing and woman's love
That follows you down the road.
