I wouldn't want to be a chimney sweep
From climbing in them chimneys
With a broom and ladder and pail
And far and high I see a patch of sky
I'd rather be the gypsy
Whose camped at the edge of town
The one who has the dancing bear
And he lifts his big foot up
And bows and twirls

Last night as I did dream
For a land I'd never seen
And the stars they steered out course

The bishop nuts and cheese
I'll taste just what I please
The shellfish from the sea
Someone to share these things with me
I wouldn't want to be a chimney sweep
From climbing in them chimneys
I'd rather be the gypsy
The one who has the dancing bear
