Gallant Signors, sweet Signors,/Pray forgive this bold intrusion/But my rule could not permit me/To acquaint you I was near./When the ransom you have paid me/On your journey safe continue./Don’t resist me! Don’t refuse me!/Who am I? Hold, then, and hear!/I am the Badolero,/The gallant Bandolero!/I rule the mountains, and I claim/As contraband what comes this way./I am the Bandolero,/King, with the sward for pillow!/I am an outlaw,/But have a Kingdom beneath my sway,/An outlaw, with Kingdom beneath my sway!/I make my castle of my tent,/My Court I hold in lonely spot,/My army is my gallant band,/My law enforced by carbine shot!/I am the Bandolero!/I am the Bandolero!/I am waiting and watching for ransom or outpost,/A welcome for captive, a carbine for spy!/Roaming the mountains, an outlaw defiant,/Gallant Bandolero will capture or die!/Signoras, no danger from me need you fear,/For my heart beats for a maid, fair as you to me dear./She prays for the pardon I soon may obtain,/That I shall be free to be with her again./I thank you for the gracious gifts,/These trinkets will my band delight!/Your way is clear, no more molesting,/I now salute you, friends, “Goodnight!”/Signoras, farewell!/Signors adieu!/I am the Bandolero,/The gallant Bandolero!/I rule the mountains, and I claim/As contraband what comes this way./I am the Bandolero,/King, with the sward for pillow!/I am an outlaw,/But have a Kingdom beneath my sway!/I am waiting and watching for ransom or outpost,/A welcome for captive, a carbine for spy!/Roaming the mountains, an outlaw defiant,/Brave and gallant Bandolero will capture or die!
