The video starts with a completely white screen, and Waters appears in one corner shortly after. In most of the video, she wears a black suit, but some scenes also show her wearing a white suit.
She has several silver earrings with crosses and ankh crosses. Occasionally a "gypsy woman" performs as the story is being told in the song. She wears a theater mask and gold gloves. The woman's Gypsy Woman (Shes Homeless) can't be seen.
At the beginning, she holds a handheld mirror while putting on lipstick. Later she dances under a street light. Three male dancers perform in blue, green and red shirts.
Throughout the video, Gypsy Woman (Shes Homeless), there are shots of rotating playhouses, falling banknotes, mannequin hands hanging in threads, and spinning umbrellas, some with the chorus written on them, making the words spin with them. Towards the end, the "gypsy woman" lies on a park bench. Waters continues singing the chorus and makes the sign of the cross. A short glimpse of a burning dollhouse appears, and as Waters sings the last stanzas, the screen goes completely white again.
