Two Romany boys were sent,
sent across the great sea.
Plato for brawling,
Lasho for stealing
the purse of a great lady.
And when they came to the other land,
The land that's over the sea,
Plato was quickly
hung, but Lasho
became husband to a great lady.
Do you want to know who the lady was?
It was the lady from whom he'd stolen the purse:
The boy had a black
And she had followed him across the great sea.
Dui Romany Chals were bitcheney,
Bitcheney pawdle the bori pawnee.
Plato for kawring,
Lasho for choring
The putsi of a bori rawnee.
And when they well'd to the wafu tem,
The tem that's pawdle the bori pawnee,
Plato was nasho
Sig, but Lasho
Was lell'd for rom by a bori rawnee.
You cam to jin who that rawnie was,
'Twas the rawnie from whom he chor'd the putsee:
The Chal had a black
And she slomm'd him pawdle the bori pawnee.
