Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose? - En siitä piittaa

Markku Karjalainen recorded "En siitä piittaa" (I don't care about it) in 1973. It was released as a single but it flopped. Kari Tuomisaari wrote the Finnish lyrics.  The original song "Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose?" was performed by Dawn featuring Tony Orlando (b. Michael Anthony Orlando Cassavitis), and released as the lead single from the 1973 album "Dawn's New Ragtime Follies". The song became the group's fourth top ten single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at 3. It's written in the style of the early 1900s.'
