El Dorado, queen of cities
Paradise so wisely hid
Overshadows Barcelona
Aragon, Castle, Madrid

Where on earth can match your riches
Match your people fine and free
Why return to old world values
This is how the earth should be

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

El Dorado, queen of cities
Overflowing with excess
Every turn exotic, lavish
Prescious wonders numberless

Lead me now into temptation
Surely you would not deny
One who's come so far to find you
All your blessings save goodbye

El Dorado, El Dorado
El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado
(She could be the death of me)
El Dorado, El Dorado, El Dorado

El Dorado, golden prison
Sheer perfection, sheer despair
How can one who knows such splendor
Feel the answer lies elsewhere

All I know is I must leave her
Or she'll be the death of me
Put my trust in poorer places
Let the queen of cities be

El Dorado, El Dorado
(Must leave her, queen of cities)
El Dorado, El Dorado
(Sheer perfection)

El Dorado, El Dorado
(Or she'll be the death of me)
El Dorado, El Dorado
(Queen of cities)

(Must leave her, queen of cities)
El Dorado
El Dorado, El Dorado
(Sheer perfection)

El Dorado, El Dorado
(Or she'll be the death of me)
El Dorado, El Dorado
(Queen of cities)
