The wraggle taggle gypsies, O! (arranged by Geoffrey Webber) appears in the same Cecil Sharp collection of Folk-songs from Somerset (No 9 in the First Series), yet is believed to have originated as a Scottish border ballad before spreading all across Great Britain and even to North America. In 1890 it was translated into Anglo-Romany by the Gypsy Lore Society. It tells of a woman who abandons her life of luxury to run away with a band of gypsies.
