Lyrics

Yeah, the caravan is on its way
I can hear the merry gypsies play
Mama, mama, look at Emma Rose
She's a-playin with the radio
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Yeah, the caravan has all my friends
Yeah, they'll stay with me until the end
Gypsy Robin, Sweet Emma Rose
Tell me everything I need to know
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Turn up your radio
And let me hear the song
Switch on your electric light
Then we can get down to what is really wrong
I long to hold you tight, so I can feel you
Sweet lady of the night, I shall reveal you

If you won't turn it up, turn it up, little bit higher radio
Turn it up, turn it up, so you know, radio
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Yeah, the caravan is painted red and white
That means everybody's staying overnight
Yeah, the barefoot gypsy player 'round a campfire sing and play
And the woman tells us of her ways
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Turn up your radio and let me hear the song
Switch on your electric light
Then we can get down to what is really wrong
I long just to hold you tight, so maybe I can feel you
Sweet lady of the night, I shall reveal you

If you won't turn it up, turn it up, little bit higher radio
Turn it up, that's enough, so you know it's got soul
Radio, radio turn it up, hmm
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
