About Matador

"Matador" (Spanish for "Killer", it means "bullfighter" in Spain) is a song written by Flavio Cianciarulo, bass player of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, a rock band from Argentina. It was first released in their 1993 album Vasos Vacíos and it is considered their signature song since the song topped the charts all across Hispanic America. Alongside "Mal Bicho", "Manuel Santillan, El León" and "Desapariciones" (a cover of Rubén Blades' song), El Matador is one of the Cadillacs song about the oppression and forced disappearances during the years of military dictatorship across the Southern Cone, particularly National Reorganization Process in Argentina. The song narrates the story of a revolutionary ("El Matador") hunted down by law enforcement from the revolutionary's POV. The song also references Víctor Jara, a Chilean folksinger and supporter of the Allende government who was kidnapped, tortured and assassinated shortly after the Chilean coup of 1973 by military officials loyal to the dictator Augusto Pinochet.

Te están buscando matador

Me dicen el matador, nací en barracas
Si hablamos de matar mis palabras matan
No hace mucho tiempo que cayó el León Santillan
Y ahora sé que en cualquier momento me las van a dar

(Ma-matador, ma-matador)
¿Dónde estás, matador?
(Ma-matador, ma-matador)

Me dicen el matador me están buscando
En una fría pensión los estoy esperando
Agazapado en lo más oscuro de mi habitación
Fusil en mano, espero mi final

(Ma-matador, ma-matador)
La cana te busca matador
(Ma-matador, ma-matador)
La cana te quiere matador 

Hey, hey
Hey, hey

Matador, matador
¿Dónde estás, matador?
Matador, matador
No te vayas, matador
Matador, oh yeah
Matador, matador

Viento de libertad sangre combativa
En los bolsillos del pueblo la vieja herida
De pronto el día se me hace de noche
Murmullos, corridas
Aquel golpe en la puerta, llego la fuerza policial

(Ma-matador, ma-matador)
Mira hermano en que terminaste
(Ma-matador, ma-matador)
Por pelear por un mundo mejor

Que suenan, son balas
Me alcanzan, me atrapan
Resiste, Víctor Jara
No calla
Matador, matador
Matador te están buscando
Matador, matador
Matador te están matando
Matador, oh yeah
Matador, matador
Valiente matador

Me dicen el matador de los 100 barrios porteños
No tengo por que tener miedo mis palabras son balas
Balas de paz, balas de justicia
Soy la voz de los que hicieron callar sin razón
Por el solo hecho de pensar distinto, ay Dios
Santa María de los Buenos Aires
Si todo estuviera mejor

Matador, matador
Si todo estuviera mejor
Matador, matador
¿A dónde vas, matador?
Matador, oh yeah
Matador, matador

Hey hey
Hey hey
