El Condor Pasa lyrics

Id rather be a sparrow than a snail,
Yes, I would,
If I could,
I surely would . . . hmm

Id rather be a hammer than a nail,
Yes, I would,
If I only could,
I surely would . . . hmm

Away, Id rather sail away,
Like a swan thats here and gone . . .
A man gets tied up to the ground,
He gives the world its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound . . . hmm

< instrumental break >

Id rather be a forest than a street,
Yes, I would,
If I could,
I surely would . . . hmm

Id rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
Yes, I would,
If I only could,
I surely would . . .

Away, Id rather sail away,
Like a swan thats here and gone . . .
A man gets tied up to the ground,
He gives the world its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound . . .

< instrumental break >

Id rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
Yes, I would,
If I only could,
I surely would . . .

Yes I would . . .
