EL CONDOR PASA

 ANDEAN FOLK SONG

English lyrics derived from Peruvian source


Oh Condor mighty owner of the sky,

Take me home, Inca home

Inca home, our home

Oh Condor mighty owner of the sky,

Take me home, Inca home

Inca home, our home


Oh wait for me in Cusco village square,

Cusco square, Cusco square

The trail, the Machu picchu trail

Wander there, high up there

Take me home

Our home, our home.


Oh Condor mighty owner of the sky,

Take me home, Inca home

Inca home

Oh Condor mighty owner of the sky,

Take me home, to the Inca home

Inca home.
