Kaye Ballard – Time, You Old Gypsy Man lyrics

Time, you old gypsy man
Thief on the wing
Drugged me with rhapsody
Tricked me with spring
Fiddled me off my feet
Danced me on air
Sprinkled my daydreams with gold dust
And silvered my hair
Silvered my hair, you rogue
And crinkled my eyes
Whistled the bird of youth
Out of my skies
Time you old vagabond
Riddle me this -
What did you do with forever and ever
That sealed every kiss ?
You packed up your tambourines
Stilled your guitars
Slipped off into the night
Turned off the stars
Stripped me of song and spring
Robbed me of rhyme
Left in your carnival caravan
But you old gypsy man
Thanks for a glorious time !
