El Matador

Announcer:
Senors and senoritas, welcome to the most anticipated bullfight in Spanish history! Today, El Matador Ricardo will face El Toro the bull – the fiercest meanest beast in all of the land!

Matador:
El Matador – comes out of the dust – as the sweet smell of roses and the foul smell of the bulls fills the air. Today, El Toro faces Don Presarios… El Toro the bull, does not think a lot- of the most beautiful woman in all of Spain.

I am the matador, and I must fight the bull
For my honor, and for my pride
It is which I adore
And it’s so much more than a job
It’s what I live for, it’s just a way of life

Oh, Ricardo, don’t you love me anymore?
You cannot fight the bull, for he is fierce and mean
And he is merciless
He will impale you with his horns
What about our lives together?

I am the matador, and I must fight the bull
For my honor, and for my pride
It is which I adore
And it’s so much more than a job
It’s what I live for, it’s just a way of life

The buzz of nervous excitement fills the stadium
As the tension mounts, the crowd rises to their feet
The vendors walk the stands, selling at the top of their lungs,
“Popcorn! Peanuts! Nachos!”
The fight begins…

(Assorted Spanish yells)

He’s got it, he’s got it, he’s got his pride
He’s got it, he’s got it, deep down inside
Because the matador, he’s got his pride
The matador, deep down inside
The matador, he’s got his pride
The matador

Come on
Fight, fight!

Announcer:
It is over. The fight is done. But it is not the bull that is the dead one, Rosalina lies dead of a broken heart. The bull and the matador together part…. As I left that arena that day, I was confused. I saw the matador and I asked him, “Why did you kill your fiancee?”

Matador:
I must have done what I have done because today’s fight was such a bore, I needed to spark up something more…

I am the matador, and I must fight the bull
For my honor, and for my pride
It is which I adore
And it’s so much more than a job
It’s what I live for, it’s just a way of life

I am the matador!
