Am      
Znałem Cyganeczkę Zosię  
F                    C
Kazali mi ją poślubić  
Dm                       Am
Lecz me serce nie pozwala, 
E                        Am-A
Mojej Cyganeczki lubić. 
Dm                       Am
Lecz me serce nie pozwala, 
E                        Am-A
Mojej Cyganeczki lubić.

Na podwórzu, na podwórzu
Cztery kare konie stoją
Lecz ty śliczna Cyganeczko
Nigdy już nie będziesz moją. 2x

A jak mi się znudzi wreszcie
Kupię sobie konia w mieście
Kupię konia i aksamit
I pojadę z Cyganami. 2x 

Jade w Polske z taborami, 
Koniom grzywy wiatr rozwiewa, hej!!! 
A ja jade z Cyganami 
I o Cyganeczce śpiewam. 2x

Lecz me serce nie pozwala 
mojej Cyganeczki lubić. 
Lecz me serce nie pozwala 
mojej Cyganeczki lubić.

Polish Gypsy Kings: 
  • Matiasz Korolewicz was conferred the title "King of the Gypsies" by the Polish Royal Chancery in 1652. Later Kings of the Gypsies seem to have been appointed from the aristocracy.
  • Janusz Kwiek was crowned as Janos I, King of the Gypsies, before thousands of people in 1937.

Traditional Polish Music
Polish folk music was collected in the 19th century by Oskar Kolberg, as part of a wave of Polish national revival. With the coming of the world wars and then the Communist state, folk traditions were oppressed or subsumed into state-approved folk ensembles. The most famous of the state ensembles are Mazowsze and Śląsk, both of which still perform. Though these bands had a regional touch to their output, the overall sound was a homogenized mixture of Polish styles. There were more authentic state-supported groups, such as Słowianki, but the Communist sanitized image of folk music made the whole field seem unhip to young audiences, and many traditions dwindled rapidly.

Polish dance music, especially the mazurka and polonaise, were popularized by Frederick Chopin, and they soon spread across Europe and elsewhere. These are triple time dances, while five-beat forms are more common in the northeast and duple-time dances like the krakowiak come from the south. The polonaise comes from the French word for Polish to identify its origin among the Polish aristocracy, who had adapted the dance from a slower walking dance called chodzony. The polonaise then re-entered the scene and became an integral part of Polish music.

Poland's five national dances
 (Mazur, Polonez, Kujawiak, Krakowiak, Oberek), as well as modern dance, contemporary dance and ballet are all widely performed today throughout the Polonia community.
