Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: The Gypsy Moth (Axton)
Subject: RE: lyrics wanted : The Gypsy Moth
about summer 1972 I was singing, to the toon (sigh) of Charlie Poole's Gypsy Girl--

Oh soon I'll be a gypsy moth but now i'm a hungry grub I eat the leaves, i eat the trees, for dessert I'll eat a shrub

there were two other verses when I wrote it and I heard somebody ELSE sing it ten years ago who would not believe my claim to having written it.

I am sure this is not what you are looking for. PETE
