El Condor Pasa Lyrics

by Paul Simon

Id rather be a sparrow than a snail
Yes, I would if I could, I surely would
Id rather be a hammer than a nail
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 branch
It gives the world it's saddest sound
It's saddest sound

Id rather be a forest than a street
Yes, I would if I could, I surely would
Id rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Yes, I would if I only could, I surely would
