The crowd is waiting for the bullfight
My final fight the place is packed once more
The one she wears is not for me tonight
She's watching now with her new love I know
Be strong and sure give the crowd a show
You're still their idol as you were before
Remind Anita, you're the greatest Matador
The time is come, forget Anita in the stands
Be better than you've never been before

Walk proud and slow
They want blood you know!
Kill just one more!
