Maybe I'm not using the filter right, or maybe this song is too unpopular so nobody ever bothered. Nevertheless it's one my mom sung to me when I was a wee lass, and I've had two lines of it stuck in my head ever since. So I figured if I'm going around the house singing two lines of it, I might as well learn the rest. So what do you say anybody out there know the lyrics to Raggle Taggle Gypsie 'O?

Robin, this has been discussed quite a bit, actually and I will try to link to some of the threads.

The search features can be a bit tricky until you get used to them, though they are powerful once you get the hang of them.

hmmmm......I KNOW they are out there...just can't seem to find them today

but if the version our resident klepto-rodent linked you to is not correct, try searching the DT (search boxz at top right of this page) for #200. That will bring up any of the variants on Child Ballad 200 in the DT - of which this song is one.

Thankyou mousetheif, those sound like the words I remember, but what a lot of verses! I might get the whole house cleaned with one song!

And if you're in a not exactly traditional mood while housecleaning, you might try this housewife's fantasy, BLACK JACK DAVY (IN ATLANTIC CITY)!

Aloha,
Mark

RAGGLE TAGGLE GYPSY

There were three auld gypsies came to our hall door.
They came brave and boldly-o.
And one sang high and the other sang low
And the other sang a raggle taggle gypsy-o.

It was upstairs, downstairs the lady went,
Put on her suit of leather-o,
And it was the cry all around her door;
"She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o"

It was late that night when the lord came in,
Inquiring for his lady-o,
And the servant girl's reply to him was;
"She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o"

"Then saddle for me my milk-white steed
Me big horse is not speedy-o
And I will ride and I'll seek me bride,
She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o"

He rode east and he rode west
He rode north and south also,
And when he rode to the wide open field
It was there that he spied his lady-o.

"Yerra, why did you leave your house and your land,
Why did you leave your money-o?
Why did you leave your only wedded lord
All for the raggle taggle gypsy-o?"

"Yerra what do I care for me house and me land?
What do I care for money-o?
What do I care for me only wedded lord?
I'm away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o"

"It was there last night you'd a goose feather bed,
Blankets drawn so comely-o.
But tonight you lie in a wide open field
In the arms of the raggle taggle gypsy-o"

"Yerra, what do I care for me goose feather bed?
Yerra, what do I care for blankets-o?
What do I care for me only wedded lord?
I'm away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o"

"Oh, for you rode east when I rode west,
You rode high and I rode low.
I'd rather have a kiss of the yellow gypsy's lips
Than all the cash and money-o"

As this thread has reappeared, maybe it is worth mentioning Nic Jones's fine version of Seven (Yellow) Gipsies available on In Search Of Nic Jones
