Paul Simon – El Condor Pasa lyrics

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 cross
He gives the world its saddest sun
Its saddest sun

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

    The singer believes in reincarnation and he is sharing his wishes of what he would rather be in his next life. He likes independence, challenges and adventures. He wouldn't like to be reborn a human being but rather an animal or plant as he considers people to be causing trouble to the earth. At the same time he prefers staying on the earth feeling it beneath his feet as well as exploring other places, not just being confined at one place.
