Sally

My mother told me - Don't play
With the gypsies in the woods.
My mother told me - Don't play
With the gypsies in the woods.
 
But the woods were dark the grass already green
There came Sally with a tambourine.
But the woods were dark the grass already tall
Tell my mother I won't come back.
 
I went to the ship-less sea to sail through
I paid 100 lire for a golden fish.
I went to the ship-less sea to sail through
I paid 100 lire for a blind fish.
 
I hopped on his back and disappeared in a flash
go tell Sally I won't come back.
I hopped on his back and disappeared in a moment
tell my mother I won't come back.
 
Not far from the city I found Pilar of the sea
with two drops of heroine the heart fell asleep.
Not far from the caravan I found Pilar of the apple trees
mouth stained of blueberries, a knife between the breasts.
 
I woke up on the oak, the killer ran away
tell the little fish I won't come back.
I looked at myself in the pond, the killer already washed himself
tell my mother I won't come back.
 
Sitting under a bridge the king of rats sniffed himself
on the road his dolls set tires on fire.
Laying down under a bridge the king of rats adored himself
on the road his dolls lured the gentlemen.
 
She spoke on my mouth she gave me a bracelet
tell the oak I won't come back.
She kissed me on the mouth she proposed me her bed
tell my mother I won't come back.
 
My mother told me - Don't play
With the gypsies in the woods.
But the woods were dark the grass already green
There came Sally with a tambourine.
