Abstract

Sound, sound, the Tambourine,
Welcome now the Gypsey star;
Strike, strike, the Mandoline,
And the light Guitar:
When the moon is beaming bright,
The Gypsies dance,
the Gypsies dance,
'Neath the moon beam's glittering ray,
Now their figures glance
See, see, they trip a long,
O'er the green o'er the green,
List, list, the cheerful song,
To the merry merry merry... Tambourine.

Sound, sound, the Tambourine,
Welcome now the Gypsey star;
Strike, strike the, Mandoline,
And the light Guitar:
Dancing at the midnight hour,
On the sands on the sands;
Tho' the tempest dark may lour,
Are seen the Gypsey Bands:
See, see, they &c.
