From the deserts to the mountains From the mountains to the sea All across the land and water There’s a message to be free We are wild and free; we are wild and free From the deserts to the mountains I call you back home to me Hear the tale I have to tell you That you are wild and free, that you are wild and free. So many times I’ve tried to call you From the mountains to the sea And so many times I’ve tried to tell you That you are wild and free, that you are wild and free. Wild, wild and free; wild and free; wild and free; wild and free So don’t try to find me ‘cross your shoulder Don’t count the cycles that you see I’ll be here when it’s all over For you’ll be wild and free; for you’ll be wild and free I am wild and free; I am wild and free Wild, wild and free; wild and free; wild and free; wild and free We are wild and free; we are wild and free.

Parava, Jal Parava, Parava, bakterismaskro zee... Ravnos, Kam ta Shon ta Puv ta bakterimaskro zee... Parava, Jal Parava, Parava, bakterimaskro zee. Basically, these words mean bring us spiritual transformation. They ask for help for our spirits to become more magical, clean and a little more empowered.

Lay the cards on the ground and we’ll see where we’re heading There are birds flying high, trees all standing proud The smile on your face says you know the path we’re treading ‘Cos you’re born of the wind All the silver and gold never brought you your freedom But you know how these can take you to realms in other worlds Don’t look back, don’t look down, just travel on with the seasons ‘Cos you’re born of the wind So fly, fly to our old lands And dream, dream of giants in the sky And never betray our soul, ‘cos it’ll take you on and on forever My child of the wind Once long ago was a prince of old legend He was brave, he was strong, and followed the old ways He looked up to the stars above and was proud to remember He was born of the wind So fly, fly to our ancient lands And dream, dream of giants in the sky And never betray our soul, ‘cos it’ll take you on and on forever My child of the wind

One I am stirring, two I am moving, three I am spinning around The rhythm flows to me, around me, and through me My soul is beginning to pound. I know that the rhythm has something Its pulse puts a spell on me It tells me at least I know one thing Rhythm once a day, keeps the blues away I can hear the drums, I can hear the drums coming across the way I can hear the drums, all over the landscape Can you hear the drums, can you hear the drums coming across the way Can you hear the drums, all over the world. Don’t try to stir me and don’t try to move me unless I am spinning around The rhythm flows to me, around me and through me My soul is beginning to pound. I know that the rhythm has something Its pulse puts a spell on me It tells me at least there is one thing Rhythm once a day will keep the blues away I can hear the drums, I can hear the drums coming across the way I can hear the drums, all over the landscape Can you hear the drums, can you hear the drums coming across the way Can you hear the drums, all over the world. Who makes the rainbow colours sit so neatly in the sky Who makes the thunder & lightning fill my ears and blind my eyes Who shares the seasons? Who has the power to hypnotise? Take me away Who cares if people try to make a world that’s never here Who gives a toss if shadows make a deal of all their fear The sinking ship is ready and that’s all I need to hear Take me away I can hear the drums…

The tossing of hair awakens my libido The flying of skirts has me crying out for more Take me to my atchin tan and vardo I’m ready if you wanna lay me across the floor I see your body dancing in the sunlight I love to see your form against the moon This mad desire’s with me all night I’m ready for love, you’d better come and get me soon You gotta lotta Gypsy It’s in your soul What a lotta Gypsy When you rock and roll Early in the morning You rock my zee Gypsy, Gypsy, Come to me. I love it when I see your shawl falling off your shoulder I love it when I see the fire burning in your eyes The passion in your sexy body bowls me over I wanna lie with you under the open skies I need to keep my crazy mind together I’m so taken with you that I don’t know what to do I want this spell with you to last forever Gypsy magic led me straight to you You gotta lotta Gypsy Bangles and beads What a lotta Gypsy Ah, yes please Early in the morning You rock my zee Gypsy, Gypsy, Come to me. I love you in the sunlight, love you in the moonlight, love you in the spring and fall, Love you when when you’re walking, love you when you’re talking, love you any way at all, When your hips are moving, when your lips are parting, just give me it all, Gypsy, Gypsy. You gotta lotta Gypsy It’s in your soul What a lotta Gypsy When you rock and roll Early in the morning You rock my zee Gypsy, Gypsy, Come to me. You gotta lotta Gypsy Gold and red What a lot of Gypsy In my bed Early in the morning You rock my zee Gypsy, Gypsy, Come to me. Ah, yes please

Mo Kam (My Kam, the sun spirit) Avali, tachiben (yes, you carry the truth of what you are) These lyrics are repeated several times...

Oh, Devlesko Mama, Ava Sonnakai, (Sacred Earth Mother, you're gold-dust) She is my kushti mama, she is my Gypsy dai. (my sexy earth) I know a kushti mama, she move me from ground to sky She dancing to kushti music, she is my Gypsy dai, she Leelis Raht Dai (blood mother). Oh, Devlesko Mama is here. Oh, Devlesko Mama is here.

Parava, Parava... Ravnos is waiting, Ravnos is smiling Parava, parava... Mo Devlesko Ravnos, mo dikimangro (my sacred sky spirit, you are my reflection) Kam, Shon and Puv travel through the same chorus of the folk song. It’s awful to say this, but it’s fallen apart If you can see this, then you'll know in your heart That the gods are angrier than they’ve ever been And this is the worst mess that they’ve ever seen What would they say if they looked down from the sky They’d say this kid’s stuff is fine, "But we ain’t got the fucking time!" There’s a song in the cosmos, and it’s there for one and all They sent us Jesus, but we just ran out of control This isn’t a fairyland, a theme park, or a zoo The wild gods have faded, into a human stew So what would they say if they looked down from the sky They’d say all this is fine, "But we ain’t got the fucking time!" Ravnos is waiting, he dare not speak of fate Kam is still yawning, at our uninitiated state It isn’t fair that the gorgeous Shon should not know what to do While Puv is still at her cauldron and her mind is set on you What would these guys say if they looked down from the sky They’d say this kid’s stuff is all very fine, "But we ain’t got the fucking time!"

Let the wind blow now, let the wind blow all around Let the wind blow now, let the wind blow all around And I will huff and puff and I will blow your house down I will huff and puff as I consign it to the ground I will huff and puff and I will blow your house right down I will huff and puff as I consign it to the ground. Oh, let the wind blow now, let the wind blow all around Let the wind blow now, let the wind blow all around And I will huff and puff and I will blow your house down I will huff and puff as I consign it to the ground Hear me huff and puff as I blow your house right down Hear me huff and puff as I consign it to the ground. Let the wind blow... Let the wind blow. Bavol’s wind blow. The wind blow. Step up to dance and feel the rhythm in me, rhythm in me... Step up to dance and feel the rhythm in me, rhythm in me... Let the wind blow now, let the wind blow all around Let the wind blow now, you cannot keep me out I will huff and puff and I will blow your house down I will huff and puff as I blow it to the ground Hear me huff and puff as I blow your house right down Hear me huff and puff as I consign it to the ground. Let the wind blow. Bavol’s wind blow. Hear the wind blow. Step up to dance and feel the rhythm in me, rhythm in me... Step up to dance and feel the rhythm in me, rhythm in me...

Crying to the tide when I feel the spray Asking for your help to flow my way I want the nature of sea, in my hour of need Dariava Running through my hand, the sands of time Your song is in your caves, in my soul and mind When white horses cover the shore, when white horses cover the shore Dariava, she’ll sing to me Stand in the wind, lie in the sand The breath in your caves steals across the land I want the nature of sea, I want all you are to be me Dariava, she’ll sing to me. Lady of the deep, spirit of the tide I want it so bad to have you on my side When white horses cover the shore, when white horses cover the shore I will hear you, Lady sing to me Sing to me, Lady sing to me Sing to me, Lady sing to me When white horses cover the shore, white horses cover the shore Dariava

about

Patrick Jasper Lee Wales, UK

I am something of an activist with my music & literature. As an indigenous Rom Gypsy my cultural and artistic work explores the highs and lows of life/soul. I champion tribal origins, and the underdog in our modern times. I am tired of what this society tends to throw at us, especially innocent folk. I believe the awesome beauty of nature & the arts remains our only hope in this chaotic world. ... more
