Gypsy Roving

by Lesley Mellor

I hear the sound of horsesí hooves
going clip clop
clip clop
along the dusty road.

I hear the sound of pots and pans
going clink clunk
clink clunk
along the dusty road.

I hear my mother singing
a gypsy song
a gypsy song
along the country road.

A-rambling and a-roving
with our music and our songs
travelling travelling
along the country road.
