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
