Musical Interlude: Gypsies, Tramps, & Thieves (1971)

The first single I'd heard from Cher was 1971's "Gypsies, Tramps, & Thieves".  It had a bouncy beat, but, as you'll see, when Cher sang it on The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour, a couple of words were slightly altered. The idea, I think, was to dissuade negative behavior (drinking, stealing).

I'm begging someone from today's generation, like Britney Spears, for example, to cover this classic.
