The Lyrics

This is an attempt to mash Cher's "Gypsies, Tramps, & Thieves" with Warren Zevon's "Lawyers, Guns, & Money." I bet it'll be interesting.
I was born in the wagon of a travellin' show
My mama, I assume, is a waitress, you know
Papa would do whatever he could
She was with the Russians, stealing lots of cash with Lawyer's help

Gypsies, lawyers, thieves
And tramps and then the guns and then of course
The money
Gypsies, lawyers, thieves
Too many things for us folks to list right now
Lawyers, guns, money, yeah!

Picked up a boy just south of Havana
Gambled with him, and took a little risk
I was sixteen, he was twenty-one
Lawyers, guns, and money
And papa would ya like to get me out of this mess?

Gypsies, tramps, and thieves
And lawyers, then the elves, and then of course
The lawyers
Gypsies, lawyers, thieves
Too many things, it's giving me a headache!
Lawyers, thieves, hamburgers!

I never had schoolin' but he taught me well
With his smooth southern style
Three months later I'm a gal in trouble
And I haven't seen him for a while, uh-huh
I haven't seen him for a while, uh-huh

Now, I'm gon' to Handuras, I'm a desparate man
With mama and a lawyers with money, you know
Grandpa'd do whatever he could
Grandpa was a bandit, he'd always liked that song
"Lawyers, Guns, and Money"

Gypsies, lawyers, thieves
And tramps and then the guns and then of course
The money
Gypsies, lawyers, thieves
Too many things for us folks to list right now
Lawyers, guns, money, yeah!

Gypsies, lawyers, thieves
And tramps and then the guns and then of course
The money
Gypsies, lawyers, thieves
Too many things for us folks to list right now
Lawyers, guns, money, yeah!
