Hear me now, oh thou bleak and unbearable world Thou art base and debauched as can be! And a knight with his valors all bravely unfurled Now hurls down his gauntlet to thee! I am I, Don Quixote, The Lord of LaMancha, My destiny calls, and I go! And the wild winds of fortune Shall carry me onward ... To wither so ever they blow ... Wither so ever they blow ... Onward to glory I go!
The musical "Man of La Mancha" was written by Dale Wasserman, with lyrics by Joe Darion and music by Mitch Leigh.
