I have recently coded the 1st line of an aria from an opera composed by George Gershwyn and I am ready to share with you the following information:

1. The code is a simple substitution code, ten distinct letters were replaced by the digits 0,1,2…9.
2. One letter was left uncoded.
3. The line consists of six words.
4. When coded the 1st, 4th, and the 5th words become square numbers and do not use the non-coded letter ,
5. The other words are either multiples of a square number, bigger than one, or use the uncoded letter.

I dare you to find the name of the aria, the numbers in my coding (or alternate solution complying with the above terms) and to explain how it relates to puzzle's title.

A possible "solution" to this puzzle could be "Bess, you is my woman now", though I do not know (yet) how it may connect to "GIPSY ROAD".

With this first line of the song title the same as those string of six words, there are four different possible solutions (note, I interpreted "bigger than one" as a request for the number representing the coded word to be greater than the number encoded by the word "one"):
1. 0123456789=SBMWAYEOUN
BESS  1600  = 40^2
YOU   578   = 17^2 * 2
IS    I0 (unencoded letter "i")
MY    25    = 5^2
WOMAN 37249 = 193^2
NOW   973   > ONE  796

2. 0123456789=SWBOYEMUAN
BESS  2500  = 50^2
YOU   437   > ONE  395
IS    I0 (unencoded letter "i")
MY    64    = 8^2
WOMAN 13689 = 117^2
NOW   931   = 7^2 * 19

3. 0123456789=SOMUEYBWAN
BESS  6400  = 80^2
YOU   513   = 3^2 * 57
IS    I0 (unencoded letter "i")
MY    25    = 5^2
WOMAN 71289 = 267^2
NOW   917   > ONE  194

4. 0123456789=SEMWAYUOBN
BESS  8100  = 90^2
YOU   436   = 2^2 * 109
IS    I0 (unencoded letter "i")
MY    25    = 5^2
WOMAN 37249 = 193^2
NOW   973   > ONE  791
