In A Little Gypsy Tea Room

(Joe Burke / Edgar Leslie)

Ray Noble and His Orchestra


I was seeking shelter from the weather
It was on a rainy April day
You remember how we got together
In a shop across the way

After being caught with no umbrella
I stopped in to have a cup of tea
Just for fun I called the fortune teller
A lucky day for me

It was in a little Gypsy tea room
When I was feeling blue
It was in a little Gypsy tea room
I first laid eyes on you

When the Gypsy came to read the tea leaves
It made me feel quite gay
When she said that someone in the tea room
Would steal my heart away

I really thought it inconceivable
But just imagine my surprise
You made the story quite believable
Right there in front of my eyes

With a smile that's sweeter than the roses
You made a dream come true
It was in a little Gypsy tea room
I gave my heart to you

y Tea Room, truly dear
