I put my hand on her knee, and she says do you want to see?
I put my hand on her breast, and she says do you want a kiss?

Gently gently, gently Johnny, gently Johnny, my jingalo
Gently gently, gently Johnny, gently Johnny, my jingalo

I put my hand on her thigh, and she says do you want to try?
I put my hand on her belly, and she says do you want to fill me?

Gently gently, gently Johnny, gently Johnny, my jingalo
Gently gently, gently Johnny, gently Johnny, my jingalo

But gently gently, gently Johnny, gently Johnny, my jingalo
Gently gently, gently Johnny, gently Johnny, my jingalo

    My InterpretationThis song discusses the way truth unfolds in the soul - like a boy feeling his way through to his girl - like the bright blood unfolding through the flesh - like a gypsy lad in his role as traveller (a 'jingalo'?) - and she says ' be gentle with me, my beloved, my fair one...' .

    This is my favourite song from the film (The Wicker Man 1973)
