"Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose"

(As recorded by Dawn featuring Tony Orlando)

We were happy, at least I thought we were
Can somebody tell me what's got into her?
A house, a home, a family and a man that loves her so
Who'd believe she'd leave us to join a burlesque show?

Oh say, has anybody seen my Sweet Gypsy Rose
Here's her picture when she was my sweet Mary Jo
Now she's got rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
Say has anybody seen my Sweet Gypsy Rose?

Oh I got, wind my Jo's been dancin' here in New Orleans
In this smoke-filled honky tonk they call The Land of Dreams
Now here she comes struttin' in her birthday clothes
Say has anybody seen my Sweet Gypsy Rose?

Oh baby, baby won't cha come home
We all miss you and every night we kiss your picture
Suppose one night the lights go dim and the crowd goes home
That's the day you wake up and you find you're all alone
So let's say goodbye to Gypsy Rose, hello Mary Jo
Say has anybody seen my sweet gypsy rose?

So take those rings off your fingers, and bells off your toes
Say has anybody seen my
Now you know just what I mean by
Has anybody seen my
Sweet gypsy Rose?
