Name El Cóndor Pasa
Writer Jorge Milchberg, Daniel Alomia Robles, Paul Simon


Original version is an orchestral musical piece by the Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Robles, written in 1913 and based on traditional Andean folk tunes. Simon & Garfunkel version (1965) with lyrics was covered by Morrissey live in concert.


I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail Yes I would If I could, I surely would I'd rather be a hammer than a nail. Yes I would If I only could, I surely would.

Away, I'd rather sail away Like a swan that's here and gone A man gets tied up to the ground He gives the world Its saddest sound, its saddest sound

I'd rather be a forest than a street. Yes I would If I could, I surely would. I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet Yes I would If I only could, I surely would
