Elton John – Queen Of Cities lyrics

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 splendour
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, (must leave her) El Dorado (queen of cities)
El Dorado, (sheer perfection) El Dorado
El Dorado, (or she'll be the death of me) El Dorado
El Dorado, (queen of cities) El Dorado
(Must leave her) El Dorado, (queen of cities)
El Dorado, (sheer perfection) El Dorado
El Dorado, (or she'll be the death of me) El Dorado
El Dorado, (queen of cities) El Dorado
