El Condor Pasa (If I Could)

Written by Daniel Robles, Jorge Milchberg and Paul Simon

 

El Condor Pasa was originally a Peruvian folk melody written by Daniel Robles. Paul Simon heard a version called "Paso Del Condor" by Jorge Milchberg, who is head of the group Urubamba, formerly known as Los Incas. Simon became friendly with the group through this song, and ended up touring with them and producing their first American album. Paul Simon personalized the song by adding his own English lyrics. On the Simon & Garfunkel version, Robles, Milchberg and Simon are all listed as songwriters.

 

Here’s a version by Simon and Garfunkel:

I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail.
Yes, I would.
If I could,
I surely would.

I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
Yes, I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.

Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone.
A man gets tied up to the ground,
He gives the world
Its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound.

I'd rather be a forest than a street.
Yes, I would.
If I could,
I surely would.

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
Yes, I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.
