Lady Gaga appeared in Germany this evening and performed “Gypsy,” a song off ARTPOP that was never heard before tonight.

Gaga took the piano for the “Gypsy” acoustic performance, but it’s not clear if this song will be a cappella on the studio album when it drops November 11. Our guess is it’s not bare bones on ARTPOP because one part of this performance (the “I’m I’m I’m” chorus towards the end) doesn’t sound like it works well acoustically.

“Gypsy” may very well be one of our favorite songs on the album (especially lyrically) and reminds us of “You and I.” What do you think of the song co-written by Lady Gaga, DJ White Shadow, Madeon, and RedOne?

Gaga will unveil a new song from the album titled “Venus” on iTunes this Sunday, October 27. It arrives on the heels of her second song released from ARTPOP titled “Do What U Want.” Her first song was “Applause.”

Lady Gaga’s ‘Gypsy’ lyrics

Sometimes a story has no end
Sometimes I think that we could just be friends
“Cuz I’m a wandering man,” he said to me
“And what about the future plans?
Does this thing we have even makes sense?
When I got the whole world in front of me?”
So I said

I don’t wanna be alone forever, but I can be tonight
I don’t wanna be alone forever, but I love gypsy life
I don’t wanna be alone forever, maybe we can see the world together
I don’t wanna be alone forever, but I can be


[Verse 2]
So I just packed my baggage and
Said goodbye to family and friends
And took a road to nowhere on my own
Like Dorothy on a yellow brick
Hope my ruby shoes get me there quick
Cuz I left everyone I love at home


[Post-Chorus 2]
I can be tonight!
Oh, why would you go with me tonight?
See the world with me?

Cuz I’m I’m I’m I’m I’m I’m a gypsy, gypsy, gypsy I’m
I’m I’m I’m I’m I’m I’m a gypsy, gypsy, gypsy I’m
I’m I’m I’m I’m I’m I’m a gypsy, gypsy, gypsy I’m
I’m I’m I’m I’m I’m I’m a gypsy, gypsy, gypsy I’m

And then he asked me, he said
“Baby! Why do we love each other?”
I said, “Honey, it’s simple
It’s the way that you love and treat your mother.”

[Chorus 2]
Thought that I would be alone forever
But I won’t be tonight
I’m a man without a home, but I think
With you, I could spend my life
And you’ll be my little gypsy princess
Pack your bags and we can chase the sunset
Bust the rearview and fire up the jets
Cuz it’s you and me!

[Post-Chorus 3]
Baby, for life
(if you go with me?)
For life
(see the world with me)


Russia, U.K, Paris
I’m Italian, Asian kompai
Africa, India, I’m a gypsy, I’m a gypsy, I’m a gypsy
I’m Latin-American
I don’t speak German, but I try
Someday in Jakarta
I’m American, I’m gypsy
I’m Bangkok, Australian, Malaysia
Just Sweden, Finland, Norway
Be my home just for the day
Danke schön
I’m a gypsy, gypsy, gypsy

    Her vocals are all over the place, but I can’t wait to hear it on the album. I love the lyrics. It reminds me of You and I and Speechless.

    So… is she a gypsy? She didn’t really make it very clear…

    LOVE. I hope the “I don’t speak German, but I try” lyric is in the actual song and wasn’t special for this performance because I love that she references one of her older songs <3
