You met me at the marketplace when your ma was not with you
You liked my long brown ringlets and my handkerchief of blue
Although I’m very fond of you and you asked me home to tea
I am a gypsy rover and you can’t come with me.

Chorus

Your brother is a Peeler and he would put me in jail
If he knew I were a poacher and I hunt your lord’s best game
Your daddy is a gentleman, your mammy’s just as grand
But I’m a gypsy rover; I’ll not be your husband.

Chorus

The hour is drawing on my love and your ma’s expecting thee
Don’t say you met me here for I’m just a gypsy
Please let go my jacket now; your love will have to wait
For I am twenty-two years old and you are only eight.

Chorus
