Gogol Bordello - My Gypsy Auto Pilot Lyrics

I came back to my hometown incognito
To forget about it all
Suddenly, I heard "hey there papito-pito-pito
You don't ever give a call"

whapba bup bup ba
whapba bup bup ba
whapba bup bup ba
whapba bup bup ba

Remember we used to skip school together
Said to me drunk girl, police man
Now, where have you been all my life
I've been skipping school since then, yeah

I've been watching trains
Swiftly rolling by
I've been jumping them
Without long goodbyes
To uncover rules of life
And how to break them well
And the key to my gypsy auto pilot
And my story to tell, hey!

Whapba bup bup ba
Whapba bup bup ba
Whapba bup bup ba
Whapba bup bup ba

So we ran to outskirts of our town
To the working man dance hall
Where all night we played piano-yano-yano
Off the chairs about to fall
Then we climbed the ladder to the attic
Where once i showed her my first song
Above the street where all them crazy dreamers
Still talking nonsense all night long

Whoa-o whoa-o
Nonsense all night long
Whoa-o whoa-o
Still writing their first song

I've been watching trains
Swiftly rolling by
I've been jumping them
Without long goodbyes
To uncover rules of life
And how to break them well
And the key to my gypsy auto pilot
And my story to tell, hey!

And we laugh, and we cry
And we recited sacred text
And we rose and we fell
And then we said, ok what's next?

But, if you keep on watching trains
Swiftly, rolling by
One day you will be gone
Without long goodbyes
To uncover rules of life
And how to break them well
And the key to your gonzo turbo gypsy auto pilot
And your story to tell
Story to tell

  35. Luanny Pereira Rocha

    WOW! This is a total perfecton! I really like this band ♥

  36. TheR2row

    Guys, please lose the electric guitar hard rock thing you're doing.

    Matthias Gregory

    +TheR2row I understand what you're saying and agree somewhat. I do think if I played the same songs every night, for reasons of keeping my sanity, change would be mandatory after more than a decade. And for GB, different means putting electric guitar up front more than in the past. Short of bringing in new instruments. It's not nearly as in your face and over the top w/ the wanking solos of Dave Matthews Band adding Tim. TIm's a killer guitarist, I just don't enjoy the extent and distortion of the new presentation. GB isn't nearly that in your face w/ the change of electric guitar.

    I think it's hard to imagine how it would be to play the same song for 4,000th time, and of any band I've ever loved, GB does it w/ more commitment and pure joy than anyone I've ever known. I can tolerate a few minor adjustments, as long as they don't turn into the bored "this is a job, let's play this shit and get outta here" vibe most band do after 7-10 yrs. of touring.

  37. Julia Ka

    I like it so much! :) Are you planning to come to France soon? Please come.

  50. I am Bennu! So are You!

    Suspiciously slick and shiny...where are the ragged edges?

    Mia Jankowicz

    Cliqmo made it and she rocks. She's an amazing photographer who's been shooting them obsessively for years now so she knows her stuff. She shot this by holding two cameras (one stills, one on video setting) stacked on top of each other, so she could get her fix either way. If you find it slick, that's because it's made with incredible love by an incredible photographer and videographer <3. 

  51. Ann Moses

    love the video!

  52. fontirolo

    needs more cowbell

  53. Snake8418

    So damn good.
