Dance, danca, dance, around the hillside
Dance, danca, dance, so let the music play
Dance, danca, dance, around till midnight
On the GipsiesÂ' wedding day

once there was a wedding
On the 3r of December
Relatives from far and near
They came along that way
An old gipsy talked to them
And said: Will you remember
All you ever wanted
Is a GipsiesÂ' wedding day

The bridegroom he was drunken
But it was not his first job
The bride was young and pretty
She was dressed in red and grey
She said: I bought my wedding - dress
Inside a second - hand - shop
All we ever wanted
Is a GipsiesÂ' wedding day

The band was just fantastic
And the fiddle played an old air
Someone brought the drinks
On stage the singer cried: hooray
TheyÂ've won some music - festivals
In everywhere and somewhere
All they ever wanted
Is a GipsiesÂ' wedding day

And evÂ'ry year I think of you
My little gipsy rover
I drink on every gipsy
And I let the past go by
I listen to the music
And before my time is over
All I ever wanted
Is a GipsiesÂ' wedding day
