Cortez The Killer
   ------Dave Matthews Band and Dave Matthews

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for a new world
A palace in the sun
On the shore lay Montezuma
With his cocoa leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wondered
The secrets of the worlds
Oh and his subjects gathered round him
Like leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see
And the women all were beautiful
And the men stood straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones
They carried them to the flatlands
And they died along the way
They built up with their bare hands
What we still cant build today
And I know she’s living there
And she loves me to this day
I can still remember when
Or how I lost my way

Cortez, Cortez,
He came dancing across the water, Cortez, Cortez

Dancing across the water [x2]
Cortez, Cortez
Dancing across the water [x3]
He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
Dancing across the water [x2]
Dancing across
He came dancing across the water
