    Lyrics »

Chorus 1:
I bought a sequined suit from a pearly queen
And she could drink more wine
Than I'd ever seen
She had some gypsies' blood flowing through her feet
And when the time was right
She said that I would meet my destiny

Chorus 2:
I traveled round the world to find the sun
I couldn't stop myself from having fun
Then one day I met an Indian girl
And she made me forget this troubled world we're
living in

(Repeart Chorus 2)

(Repeart Chorus 1)
