  • I'm known by many different names
    My good friend Will
    Calls me Puck and Robin Goodfellow
    I follow the gypsy faerie queen
    I follow the gypsy faerie queen

    She walks the length and breadth of England
    Singing her song, using her wand
    To help and heal the land
    And the creatures on it
    She's dressed in rags of moleskin
    And wears a crown of rowan berries on her brow

    And I follow, follow, follow
    The gypsy faerie queen
    We exist, exist, exist
    In the twilight in-between

    She bears a blackthorn staff
    To help her in her walking
    I only listen to her sing
    But I never hear her talking
    Anymore
    Though once she did
    Though once she did

    And I follow, follow, follow
    My gypsy faerie queen

    We exist, exist, exist
    In the twilight in-between

    And I follow, follow, follow
    My gypsy faerie queen

    We exist, exist, exist
    In the country in-between

    Me and my gypsy queen Writer/s: Marianne Faithfull, Nicholas Cave
