Django Reinhardt was born in Belgium as the record of his life show
At Liberchies of gipsy parents over ninety years ago
And he died in France at Fontainebleau in nineteen fifty three in May
From the most humble of beginnings he had gone a long long way.
He lost a few fingers of his right hand when he was a twelve year old
In a fire in his caravan so the story has been told
But this did not deter Django he still played violin and guitar
He was destined to be famous and his music would be known far.
In the World of jazz he's famous he is in the hall of fame
