Lyrics
I've sailed in my boat round the Cape of Good Hope
Africa surprise
to search for the gold that the Spaniards had told
would dazzle a dead man's eyes

Chorus
Saw Cortez conquer Mexico, p___aro take Peru
but I'd give all the gold in Eldorado just to be with you

I've seen trumpeting herds of fine feathered birds
blacken up the sky
to pick at the bones of the man who left home
to search for gold and die

Chorus

I've seen cities appear built by men without fear
twinkle of an eye
then crumble to dust in the hot dessert air
when the land had been sucked dry

Chorus
