Matador


Take me to the Matador
He will know just what it's for
He will help me with my life
He will open every door



When the bull is in the ring
You need all the help you can
And the Mariachis sing
With the lonely mandoline



See those people shout out loud
Give me more and give me more
And I'm thinking to myself
Take me to the Matador



Take me to the Matador
He will fill and ease my soul
He will give me confidence
When I think I've lost control



He will help me with my muse
In the age of win and lose
With the ancient cup and sword
And a hundred Spanish lords



See one thousand violins
Golden trumpets soar on high
Waves and waves of joyful hymns
Silver sonnets reach the sky



Fight the battles and the blues
Wars of love and wars of art
Tonight the cape is what I choose
Goya's in my Spanish heart



Ty-dy-ty-ty-ty...



He will help me with my love
Dance the dance that lovers do
Rumba with the velvet glove
'neath the Barcelona moon



See one thousand violins
Golden trumpets soar on high
Waves and waves of joyful hymns
Silver sonnets reach the sky



Ty-dy-ty-ty-ty...



Take me to the Matador...
