lyrics

She prowls through the streets like a hungry alley cat
with a vintage guitar and a flower in her hat she's
Gypsy of New york city

Love is her religion and freedom is her reason
she has four coats so she can blend in with the seasons she's
Gypsy of New york city
oh she's beautiful but she ain't pretty


She sings lalalalal let yourself go
let your hair down let yourself go
life is beautiful

She likes to serenade the crowds as they shove into the trains
and find broken umbrellas on the streets after it rains oh
gypsy of new york city

and when you're running late for work she might ask you to dance
and if you're sitting on the fence
she makes you want to take a chance oh
gypsy of new york city
oh she's beautiful but she ain't pretty

She hasn't a care in the world
brushes her hair with the wind
she sings smooth as a pearl
and laughs louder than a thousand women
her eyes are glowing with life
from the fire in her soul
you hear her sing through the night
she makes you want to let go
