And You, Old Gypsy..

And you, Old Gypsy,

Where do you come from?

I come

From a country

That isn’t there anymore..


[from “Les Gitans”, a song by Dalida]



  1. The song in Italian, Dalida was young, focused on the passion in the song:

    Later, she’d grow older and sing the same song, but focused on the nostagia of the song. I heard it in French, where it says:
    The original says..
    Et toi, Vieux Gitan,
    D’oú viens-tu?
    Je vient
    D’un pays
    Qui n’existe plus..
    The translation in English is my own.
