Uriah Heep
Gypsy

I was only seventeen,
I fell in love with a gypsy queen.
She told me - hold on!

Her father was the leading man,
Said "You're not welcome on our land."
And then as a foe, he told me to go.

He took me to a little shack
And put a whip across my back
Then told her - leave me.

I was out for quite a time,
Came back with her on my mind.
Sweet little girl - she means all the world.

Though I want my gypsy queen,
Will she still be torn between
Her father and lover?

One day I will go to him
Strong enough to fight and win.
The kind of a man that he'll understand
