Lyrics [verse:]
NOW THE GYPSY BAND
REST THEIR CARAVAN
WHERE THE HILLS
CONCEAL THE SUN,
DUSKY MAGIC FALLS,
GYPSY MUSIC CALLS,
CALLS TO LOVERS
ONE BY ONE;
A LOVER STRUMS
HIS FIDDLE
WHILE HE HUMS
THIS LITTLE SONG...

[Chorus:]
PLAY, FIDDLE, PLAY,
PLAY MY LOVED ONE
A MELODY,
SING TO MY LOVE
WHILE THE STARS
SWING ABOVE.
PLAY, FIDDLE, PLAY,
SING MY LOVED ONE
A RHAPSODY,
PLAY ON THE STRINGS
OF HER HEART.

THE CAMPFIRES
ARE GLEAMING
AS RED AS THE SUN,
AND MY HEART
KEEPS DREAMING,
JUST DREAMING OF ONE.

SO SOFTLY CROON,
WHILE THE MOON
WEAVES OUR TWO HEARTS
IN HARMONY,
PLAY, FIDDLE, PLAY,
TO MY LOVE.
