Are there any credible records of gypsies abducting people? Any prosecutions or missing-persons reports? Anything on this topic in a reputable newspaper?

Because I suspect this song is just racist stuff that belongs in the Great Wastebasket.

A few years ago, I was standing in line outside the Louvre on a hot day, and a Roma boy about 12 years old stepped in front of me and thrust a bottle of water towards my face, wanting me to buy it. (I did.) And as I did so, I thought to myself that I had never seen skin that remarkable color - both dark and golden, with hair utterly black. No typical Irish or English white person could be mistaken for his kind.
