Week 50 – Gypsy In The City by The Glad Stones

Gypsies are people who live by their own rules. They go against the flow, they stand out, they travel from place to place. They evoke a sense of adventure, a life that is out-of-the-ordinary.

When we were writing this song, we wanted to say something about that kind of life – about walking a path that is different from the norm, different from the usual routes that people choose.

Sometimes, we get the feeling that we are “gypsies in the city”, because of the goals we’ve chosen. Not many people, especially here, go out and pursue the life that they want to live, or the dreams that they want to achieve.

And we feel that the gypsy defines that experience for us. We hope it inspires you to choose your own direction in life 🙂

Gypsy In The City

I’m jivin’ down Orchard Road
Guitar’s my only load
Don’t have a care at all
I’m feeling ten feet tall

I trust my own beliefs
Like a fish swimming upstream
I know which way to go
I stand up and start a show

Trust me my dreams ain’t small
My voice can fill the hall
I’m always on the move
Feel free to disapprove

Chorus
I’m just a gypsy in the big bad city
Got blues in my shoes and nothing to lose
Wake up at noon but I don’t dilly-dally
So baby don’t tease me with your you should be’s

I’m just a gypsy in the big bad city
Got the blues in my shoes and nothing to lose
I write the tune to my own symphonies
Choose to walk the path beyond the trees

We only got so much time
But don’t rush to make up your mind
Find what you really want
But don’t be blinded by the sun

Love with all your heart
If you don’t we’ll fall apart
Grab hold of your soul and begin
The life you’re meant to be in

Trust me my dreams ain’t small
My voice can fill the hall
I’m always on the move
Feel free to disapprove
