Subject: Looking for lyrics for Gypsies in the
From: vir40go
Date: 02 Oct 99 - 10:24 AM

I think the title was 'Gypsies in the Palace'. My mother use to listen to it all the time about 30 or 40 years ago. I don't know who the artist was, but I would like to find the artist and lyrics and if it might be available for purchase. The song was about these gypsies that came to a house while the owners were away and stayed and did all kinds of work there because they felt they they had found a palace. When they did all they could do they moved on. The people came home and found a note saying what had happened. I don't remember many details because it was so long ago. I would really like to find this for my mother if I could. If anyone could help I would appreciated it very much.

Welcome to the Mudcat. Apparently Jimmy Buffet and friends wrote a modernised version, which I found. I know it isn't the one you're looking for, but tought I'd include it anyway. I will check a couple of other sources, for the older one. Someone on here is bound to know. Check back and good luck! ...katlaughing

GYPSIES IN THE PALACE
Jimmy Buffett, Glenn Frey & Will Jennings

So long Boss, knock 'em dead, don't worry 'bout a thing
Wish that we could come along, we'd love to hear you sing
The limo's here, your bags are packed, the list is by the phone,
Me and Snake will watch your place and treat it like our own

Look at all this liquor
Look at all this food
It's only gonna go to waste
We're not really being rude
But the good stuff's in his closet, I swear he wouldn't mind
Hell, we''ll just shoot the lock off, I do it all the time

We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone
The order of the sleepless knights will now assume the throne
We ain't got no money, we ain't fot no fight
But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight

There's damsels in distress out there and we got all this beer
We'll free them from their condos and bring them over here
We'll show them his gold records
We'll play his music loud
We'll party just like Bubba does
We'll do the old man proud

We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right
We're gypsies in the palace, and we're going wild tonight.

He's the greatest guy to work for, man, he's really cool
Hey Snake, this party's getting dull, throw someone in the pool
Hey, let's all take our clothes off and form a conga line
Watch out for that broken glass, hey Snake, we need more wine

We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right
We're gypsies in the palace and we're raising hell tonight, hey

Oh, hi there Boss, what's goning on?
You say you're coming when?
I'll send Snake to pick you tomorrow night at ten, okay

Everybody out of here, the show is closing down
We've got to find someone to clean this up,
He's coming back to town

Hi there boss, we waxed your car, we raked and mowed your lawn
We couldn't find enough to do in the short time you were gone
,br> Man it sure is peaceful here, you really got it all
If you ever hit the road again, give me and Snake a call

We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone
The order of the Sleepless Knights will now assume the throne
We ain't got no money, we ain't got no right
But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight

Hello?
Hey, Jimmy, it's Glenn
Glenn, How ya doing?
Fine man, I'm going on the road, do you know anyone who could house sit for me?
I got these two great guys that look after my place man, they're the best.
