Fernando
Cher & Andy Garcia Lyrics


Can you hear the drums, Fernando?
I remember long ago another starry night like this
In the firelight, Fernando
You were humming to yourself
And softly strumming your guitar
I could hear the distant drums
And sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar

They were closer now, Fernando
Every hour, every minute, seemed to last eternally
I was so afraid, Fernando
We were young and full of life
And none of us prepared to die
And I'm not ashamed to say
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

Now we're old and grey, Fernando
Since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums, Fernando?
Do you still recall the fateful night we crossed the Rio Grande?
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

Yes, if I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

The original Swedish lyrics is about lost love.


Why are you grieving Fernando?
Why does your guitar sound so sad;
what’s going on?
Is it love Fernando -
has she left you, your great, great love -
is that it?
Those who have loved and lost
know that it happens from time to time.

The grief can be difficult to bear,
but betrayal by friends is something you have to learn to live with.
I have also lost, my dear,
How could you think that this could only happen to you …
Have you got any happy songs to play,
play, play them for me!

Long, long live love
our best friend, Fernando.
Raise your glass and propose a toast to it,
to love, Fernando!
Play, play the melody and sing the song of happiness.
Long, long live love!
To love, Fernando!

Shall we propose a toast to the others
for eternal love and faith that lives in every song?
Or toast to each other?
Would you drink for the happiness that I once had…
It is true what they say a beautiful fairytale never, ever lasts.

@bahamutskingdom sigh.... you got your silly little YouTube points, just admit you made it up.

1. People were jumping and screaming? In a movie theater?? Yeah, right. That happened.

2. Everyone did?? Every single person? Can you verify that? Did you walk around the theater and have a little chat to every single movie goer

3. If everyone was screaming, then how would you hear the movie? Why were they jumping?? Scratch that, why were *pensioners*, old arthritic-striken elders, jumping up and down and screaming?

You're a liar and I have too much spare time. But don't worry, you got 133 likes (as of 28th December), and isnt that the true moral of the story?

Now we're old and grey Fernando
And since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums Fernando
Do you still recall the frightful night we crossed the Rio Grande

How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land
There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando

Yes, if I had to do the same again
