"Fernando"

Can anda hear the drums Fernando?
I remember long yang lalu another starry night like this
In the firelight Fernando
anda were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar
I could hear the distant drums
And sounds of terompet calls were coming from afar

They were closer now Fernando
Every jam every menit seemed to last eternally
I was so afraid Fernando
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die
And I'm not ashamed to say
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for anda and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

Now we're old and grey Fernando
And since many years I haven't seen a senapan in your hand
Can anda hear the drums Fernando?
Do anda still recall the fateful night we crossed the Rio Grande?
I can see it in your eyes
How proud anda were to fight for freedom in this land

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for anda and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for anda and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando
Yes, if I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando...
