El Lute

Boney M

Brown girl in the ring

Tra la la la la

This is the story of El Lute

A man who was born to be hunted like a wild animal

Because he was poor

But he refused to accept his fate

And today his honor has been restored

He was only nineteen

When was sentenced to die

For something that somebody else did

And blamed on El Lute

Then they changed it to life

And so he could escape

From then only chased him

And searched for him day and night

All over Spain

But the search was in vain

For El Lute

He had only seen the dark side of life

The man they called El Lute

And he wanted a home

Just like you and like me

In a country where all would be free

Though he taught himself

To read and to write

It didn't help El Lute

He was one who had dared to escape overnight

They had to find

El Lute

Soon the fame of his tale

Spread like wild fire

All over the land

Were the prize on his head

People still gave him bread

And they gave him a hand

For they knew he was right

And his fight was their fight

No one gave you a chance

In the Spain of those days

On was every place

They had put up the face of El Lute

And he robbed where he could

Just like once Robin Hood

They finally caught him

And that seemed the end

But they caught him in vain

'Cause a change came for Spain

And El Lute

He had only seen the dark side of life…

And then freedom really came to his land

And also to El Lute

Now he walks in the line

Of a sunny new day

The man they call El Lute
