Race of Men that Don’t Fit In

Sunday, June 28th, 2009
There’s a race of men that don’t fit in,
A race that can’t stay still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin,
And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and they rove the flood,
And they climb the mountain’s crest;
Theirs is the curse of the gypsy blood,
And they don’t know how to rest.

World Will Come to You

Sunday, June 21st, 2009
