    Sad little boy of the street
    Hands of a thief
    With the mind of a dreamer
    Dodging the puddles with feet
    Of a torero in an arena
    Sings an old andalucian song
    Dancing along
    Using his dirty red coat as a cape

    Rain thundering down
    Sounds like the applause from
    Hundreds of people
    He feels free as the wind
    Free as the swifts
    Around the cathedral
    Kneels to acknowledge his fame
    Forgets all his pain
    Little toreador in the rain

    Bathed in a rainbow of pink
    Purple and blue outside la molina
    The pavement reflecting the neon
    Lights this torero in his arena
    He looks down at his clothes
    Imagining those
    Worn of sequin, gold and brocade

    He kneels and kisses the beast
    Fearing the least
    Knowing death will not find him
    But maybe one day he will face
    The horns of the devil
    His childhood behind him

    Brave young man from the streets
    No more a thief
    No longer a dreamer
    Stands in front of the beast
    A golden torero in an arena
    It starts to thunder and rain
    Remembering that day
    He danced like a fool on the wing of a dream

    Sand turning to mud
    Soon where his blood will splatter and mingle
    Free, free as an angel
    Up with the swifts
    Around the cathedral
    Never to be seen again
    Dreams all in vain
    There lies the toreador in the rain

    Little toreador in the rain
    Little toreador in the rain
