With ladies' roses the ring is full.

Carajolo: Oh, for I am the Toreador!
I am famous on every shore,
There is no one that's worshipped more
In the palace, or in the posada;
For the ladies will blush before
The adorable Toreador,
And a welcome the ring will roar
To its hero, the gallant Espada.

Carajolo: The bravest of men at the boldest game!
Chorus: Ta-ran-ta-ra-tan-ta-ra-ta.

And unseen enemy miles away;
But hand to horn is the deadly war
Of the Toreadorable toreador! O-la! O-la!

Carajolo: Oh, for I am the Toreador!
I am famous on every shore,
There is no one that's worshipped more
In the palace, or in the posada;
For the ladies will blush before
The adorable Toreador,
And a welcome the ring will roar
To its hero, the gallant Espada.
Chorus: For he is the Toreador!
He is famous on every shore,
There is no one that's worshipped more
In the palace, or in the posada;
For the ladies will blush before
The adorable Toreador,
And a welcome the ring will roar
To its hero, the gallant Espada.
