"Golden Earrings" lyrics as sung by Jody Jaress
There's a story
The gypsys know is true
That when your love wears golden earrings
They belongs to you
An old love story
That's known to very few
That if you wear... golden earrings
Love will come to you
By the golden fire
They will glow
With every coal
You will hear desire
Inside your soul
So be my gypsy
Make love your guiding light
And let this pair
Of golden earrings
Cast their spell tonight
