Lyrics:He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world

In that palace in the sun

On the shore lay Montezuma
With his coca leaves and
pearls
In his halls he often wandered
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his
subjects gathered 'round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many
colours
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
But they built up with their bare hands
What we still can't do today.

And I
know she's living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can't rememebr when
Or
how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
What a
killer.
