Surprised this wasn't already there...

EL MATADOR
Jane Bowers/Irving Burgess
Aye, Torero, she is here. Aye, matador. I feel her eyes. They are wide with excitement and fear.
I feel her heart for it cries when the horns are too near.
I will bold, brave, and swift will I be and I will be numero uno, torero fino. She'll dream tonight of me.
Chorus:
Ole, ole, ole! (Husted!) Viva el matador! Ole, ole, ole! (Venga!) Viva el matador!
Aye, Torero, she is here. Aye, matador. I see her smile and I see there the reason she came.
Toro, come closer. Come here and I'll whisper her name.
You may be brave and as bold as you're black, but I will be numero uno, torero fino, toro come back.
Chorus)
Toro, aqui. Closer, closer, closer.


One question - is it Husted or Hasta, that they cry in parentheses? Lovely song!

Terrible lyrics; bad English and bad or junk Spanish, little or no meat.

I will bold, brave and swift will I be ?? Shish!

Venga (vengar)- revenge, avenge. Not in the spirit of a corrida de toros.
Husted- no such word. Possibly Usted!- you!.

Listen to "Matador" as sung by Los fabulosos Cadillacs (from Argentina) on Youtube.
(No relation to the Kingston Trio song).
A fantastic tour de force!

No biggie - but I think it's Hasta, not Husted. Hasta means let's go, no? Kind of like Allons-y?
