Spanish Harlem Incident Lyrics

Spanish Harlem Incident - The Byrds

Gypsy gal the hands of Harlem


Cannot hold you to its heat


Your temperature's too hot for taming


Your flaming feet burn up the street


I am homeless come and take me


Into reach of your rattling drums


Let me know babe about my fortune


Down along my restless palms


Gypsy gal you got me swallowed


I have fallen far beneath


Your pearly eyes so fast and slashing


An' your flashing diamond teeth


The night is pitch black come and make my

Pale face fit in to place ah please


I gotta know babe I'm nearly drowning


If it's you my lifelines trace


I been wond'rin' all about me


Ever since I seen you there

On the cliffs of your wildcat charms I'm riding


I know I'm 'round you but I don't know where


You have slayed me you have made me

I got to laugh halfways off my heels


I got to know babe will you surround me


So I can tell if I'm really real
