|The Kingston Trio: Their Greatest Hits and Finest Performances||El Matador (Bowers-Burgess)
A Mexican bullfighting song, "El Matador" gave
the group a moderate hit (No. 32) in the winter of 1960.
The pivotal track of the group's fifth gold LP, Sold Out,
"El Matador" tells of a matador performing in
the ring while he knows his fiery woman is watching him
from the stands. The song was written by Jane Bowers and
Irving "Lord" Burgess, who also wrote "The
Wanderer" (see page 15) and "Islands in the Sun."

|Aye, Torero, she is here.
I feel her eyes. They are wide with excitement and fear.
I feel her heart for it cries when the horns are too near.
I will bold, brave, and swift will I be
and I will be numero uno, torero fino.
She'll dream tonight of me.
Aye, Torero, she is here.
Toro, aqui. Closer, closer, closer.
