Q (Frank Staplin) Girl Scout songs - from the fading ditto sheets... (26) RE: Girl Scout songs - from the fading ditto sheets... 01 Sep 14

A verse from Gipsy Life, Faria, is quoted in both English and German in the book, Germany and it`s Gypsies, A Post-Auschwitz View, Gilad Margalit.
No date is given, but the lines suggest prior to WW1.

Lustig ist das Zigeunerleben... Faria, Faria, Ho
Er braucht dem Kaiser
Kein Zins zu geben;
Lustig was es em in grunen Wald, (umlaut u- keyboard acting up)
Wo der Zigeuner Aufenhalt.

Jolly is the Gipsy`s life...Faria, Faria, Ho
He needs to pay
The Kaiser no tribute;
Jolly it is in the green forest
Where the Gipsy lives.

A reference is given, but the Google excerpt does not include the references.
