In days of old, when knights were bold and journeyed from their castles
Trusty men were left behind, knights needed not the hassles
They helped themselves to pig and peach
And drank from King's own chalice

Oh, it was a stirring sight, these gypsies in the palace
And as I told my friend Zachary Richard, when you leave home
Some things never change, hit it

So, long boss, knock 'em dead, don't you worry 'bout a thing
I wish that we could come along, we'd love to hear you sing
The limo's here, your bags are packed, the list is by the phone
Me and Snake will watch your place, treat it like our own

Look at all this liquor, look at all this food
It's only gonna go to waste, we're not really being rude
But the good stuff's in his closet, I swear he wouldn't mind
Hell, we'll just shoot the lock off, I do it all the time

We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone
The order of the sleepless knights, will now assume the throne
We ain't got no money, we ain't got no right
But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight

There's damsels in distress up there and we got all this beer
We'll free them from their condos, bring 'em over here
We'll show them his gold records, play his music loud
We'll party just like Bubba does, we'll do the old man proud

We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right
We're gypsies in the palace, and a' goin' wild tonight

He's the greatest guy to work for, man he's really cool
Hey Snake this party's gettin' dull, throw someone in the pool
Let's all take our clothes off and form a conga line
Watch out for that broken glass, hey Snake, we need more wine

We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right
We're gypsies in the palace and we're raisin' hell tonight

Hi there boss, what's goin' on? You say you're coming when?
I'll send Snake out to pick you up tomorrow night at ten, okay
Everybody outta here, this joint is closin' down
We gotta find someone to clean this up, he's comin' back to town

Hi there boss, we waxed your car, we raked and mowed your lawn
We couldn't find enough to do in the short time you were gone
Man, it sure is peaceful here, you've really got it all
And if we ever hit the road again, give me and Snake a call

We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone
The order of the sleepless knights, will now assume the throne
We ain't got no money, we ain't got no right
But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight

Hello? Hey, Jimmy, it's Glenn, Glenn, how ya' doing?
Fine man, I'm going on the road
Do you know anyone who could house sit for me?
I got these two great guys that look after my place man, they're the best
