El Dorado Lyrics

by Elton John

Our glorious city
Was build by the divinities, by Gods
Who saw fit to bestow the gift of a paradise
Peaceful and harmonious upon us
Mere mortals below

And made El Dorado
The magnificent and golden
One thousand years ago

El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado

But all this was granted for only one millennium
I know my legacy is to fulfill
My promise to all my people
Who have trusted me, the Gods
Will approve of us still

Preserve El Dorado
The magnificent and golden
And I believe they will

El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado
El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado

The mountains so high and waters deep
Are her disguise
Her secrets are safe from foreign hands
And eyes forever

Preserve El Dorado
The magnificent and golden
And I believe they will

El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado
El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado

El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado
El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado
