A Gypsy Told Me

< instrumental opening > 
 
A gypsy told me,
that I'd be lucky in my love . . .
It's written in the stars above,
the gypsy told me so!
 
She said that someone
would come into my life someday . . .
and we would journey far away,
the gypsy told me so!
 
She then described her eyes and hair,
and said she'd be divinely handsome . . .
the answer to my every prayer,
the picture that she drew,
completely fitted you!
 
Then out of heaven,
you suddenly appeared to me
exactly as she said you'd be . . .
so awfully sweet,
I always knew we'd meet
a gypsy told me so!
