Gypsies

I have a caravan but have no site

I have a home, but no house to my name.

I have four children they can’t go to school

I taught them well, our rulers have no rules

I used to make my bread I have no fuel

I have no butter and the milk is stale

Can I get them shoes to keep them warm?

Barefoot kids will surely come to harm

In Norfolk we ate samphire not roast beef

We had no English breakfast, that’s for thieves

We went to Wales and bought some bara brith

We found the Catholic church and went to Mass

Jesus Christ was all the food we had

We are gypsies but we are not bad
