El Condor Pasa (If I Could)

ŠPaul Simon, Jorge Milchberg, and Daniel A. Robles, released on Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon and Garfunkel) 1970

.

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.

.

[Chorus:]

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.
