El Lute Lyrics

 

 

El Lute - Boney M

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

 

And he 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 on they 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

 

So 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 name

 

Spread like wild fire all over the land

 

With a price 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 him a chance

In the Spain of those days

 

On the walls 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

 

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

 

And then freedom really came to his land

 

And also to El Lute

 

Now he walks in the light of a sunny new day

 

 

The man they called El Lute
