The Wraggle Taggle Gypsies
Last updated: 06.02.20
"The Wraggle Taggle Gypsies" is another of Brian Kelly's numbers which he often sang with the Idle Fellows. It's theme is virtually the same as his rendering of Three Gypsies in a comprehensible English but with a somewhat different, more melodious tune. For example, compare the last verse regarding clarity:
    "What care I for a goose-feather bed
    With the sheet turned down so bravely-oh.
    For tonight I shall sleep in a cold open field,
    Along with the wraggle-taggle gypsies-oh."
