The Impressions - Gypsy Woman

Featuring Curtis Mayfield

From nowhere through a caravan
Around the camp fire light
Ah lovely woman in motion with hair as dark as night
Her eyes were like that of a cat in dark
That hypnotized me with love
She was a gypsy woman
She was a gypsy woman

She danced around and round
To a guitar melody from the fire
Her face was all aglow
How she enchanted me
Oh how I'd like to hold her near and kiss
And forever whisper in her ear
I loved a gypsy woman
I loved a gypsy woman

All through the caravan
She was dancing with all the men
Waiting for the rising star
Everyone was having fun
I hate to see the lady go
Knowing that she will never know that I love her I love her
Ah gypsy woman
Ah gypsy woman
Ah gypsy woman
