There were three ol' gypsies came to our hall door
They came brave and boldly oh
One sang high and the other sang low,
Made the lady sing the raggle taggle gipsy oh

Upstairs and down the lady ran
She put on silk and leather oh
And the cry's gone up all around the door
She's away with the raggle taggle gipsy oh

Well, late last night the lord came home
Inquiring for his lady oh
And the serving girls replied to him all
She's away with the raggle taggle gipsy oh

Then saddle for me, the fastest steed
The big horse's not speedy oh
I'll ride wide to seek for me bride
She's away with the raggle taggle gipsy oh

Well he rode east, and he rode west
He rode south and north also
And it's when he has come to the wide open field
It's there that he's found his lady oh

Oh why would you leave your house and lands
Why would you leave your money oh
Why would you leave your only wedded lord
To follow with the raggle taggle gypsy oh

Oh what care I for my house and land
What care I for money oh
What care I for my only wedded lord
When I can have my raggle taggle gypsy oh
