“I, Don Quixote” from Man of La Mancha


Hear me now,
Oh thou bleak and unbearable world,
Thou art base and debauched as can be;
And a knight with his banners all bravely unfurled
Now hurls down his gauntlet to thee!

I am I, Don Quixote,
The lord of La Mancha!
My destiny calls and I go,
And the wild winds of fortune
Will carry me onward,
Oh whithersoever they blow!
Whithersoever they blow,
Onward to glory I go!

Hear me, heathens and wizards
And serpents of sin!
All your dastardly doings are past,
For a holy endeavour is now to begin,
And virtue shall triumph at last!

I am I, Don Quixote,
The lord of La Mancha!
My destiny calls and I go,
And the wild winds of fortune
Will carry me onward,
Oh whithersoever they blow!
Whithersoever they blow,
Onward to glory I go!
Yes, onward to glory I go!
