Description

"If you jump up on my barrow, I'll take you for a ride. And maybe in the springtime you can be my bride." Can you speak Romany, play the fiddle, eat prison food, cut the wood, break a horse, sleep with a girl and make someone not Romany?

Notes

The text in Voice11 translates the Romany words into English (for example, "rokker" is translated as "speak"). The description relies on that translation. - BS
