To the faraway places of France
Of the people and the places I've been
I'll sing you a song and I won't keep you long
For the tambourine's playin'
And the carnival's callin' me home

And the rock and roll gypsies are ridin' tonight
On the carnival strips they'll stay
And the golden eyrie's will laugh at the light
'Cause life is more than a play
For tomorrow will soon be yesterday

To the motherless children who ride
On the shadow of this highway at night
It's more than a game, more than fortune or fame
For the winner takes nothin'
And the loser gets all that remains

And the rock and roll gypsies are ridin' tonight
On the carnival strips they'll stay
And the golden eyrie's will laugh at the light
'Cause life is more than a play
For tomorrow will soon be yesterday

And the rock and roll gypsies are ridin' tonight
On the carnival strips they'll stay
And the golden eyrie's will laugh at the light
'Cause life is more than a play
For tomorrow will soon be yesterday
