Cortés, what a killer

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun …
Cortés, what a killer

Cortés, Cortés – what a killer by Neil Young

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 wondered
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his subjects gathered ’round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
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 remember when
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water Cortés,
Cortés, what a killer.

Vino bailando a través del agua con sus galeones y sus armas
buscando el nuevo mundo
en ese palacio al sol.

En la orilla yacía Moctezuma

Con sus hojas de coca y perlas
En sus pasillos a menudo se preguntaba
Con los secretos de los mundos.

Y sus súbditos se reunieron a su alrededor, como las hojas alrededor de un árbol, con sus ropas de muchos colores para que vean los dioses enojados.

Y todas las mujeres eran hermosas.

Y los hombres se mantuvieron firmes y fuertes.

Ofrecieron vida en sacrificio para que otros pudieran continuar.

El odio era solo una leyenda
Y la guerra nunca se supo
La gente trabajó junta
Y levantaron muchas piedras.

Los llevaron a las tierras planas
Y murieron en el camino
Pero se acumularon con sus propias manos
Lo que todavía no podemos hacer hoy.

Y sé que ella vive allí.
Y ella me ama hasta el día de hoy, todavía no puedo recordar cuándo o cómo me perdí en mi camino.

Él vino bailando a través del agua Cortés,
Cortés, qué asesino.
