			He came dancing across the water
			With his galleons and guns
			Am7             Am7+5th
			Looking for the new world
                                Am7           Am7+5th
			In that palace in the sun

	On the shore lay Montezuma
	With his coca leaves and pearls
	In his halls he often wandered
	With the secrets of the worlds.

	And his subjects gathered 'round him
	Like the leaves around a tree
	In their clothes of many colours
	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
	Cortez, Cortez
	What a killer.
