|The Wraggle Taggle Gypsies|
"The Wraggle Taggle Gypsies" is another of Brian Kelly's songs. It's theme is virtually the same as his rendering of
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."
