About The Legend of Xanadu

"The Legend of Xanadu" is a single by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich that reached number one in the UK Singles Chart in 1968, and was the group's biggest hit. As with many of their singles, it was written by songwriters Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley, and like many of the group's recordings, it features novelty elements — in this case a trumpet section and the distinctive sound of a whip cracking in the chorus. The musical accompaniment was directed by John Gregory.

Esta es larienda de Xanadu

You'll hear my voice
On the wind cross the sand
If you should return
To that black, barren land
that bears the name of Xanadu

Cursed without hope
Was the love that I sought
Lost from the start
Was the duel that was fought
to win a heart in Xanadu

Now no footsteps leave their traces
Only shadows move in places where we used to go
And the buildings open to the sky
All echo with the vultures cry as if to show
Our love was for a day
And doomed to pass away
In Xanadu
In Xanadu
In Xanadu

(Spoken)
What was it to you that a man lay down his life for your love?
Were those clear eyes of yours ever filled with the pain & tears of grief?
Did you ever give yourself to any one man in this whole wide world?
Or did you love me and will you find your way back one day to Xanadu?

You'll hear my voice
On the wind cross the sand
If you should return
To that black, barren land
that bears the name of Xanadu

In Xanadu
In Xanadu
In Xanadu
