"Fernando" is a song by Swedish pop group ABBA. It was featured in the Season Nine episode, "Wing".

Background

Wing and her representation, Super Awesome Talent Agency, was turned down at the American Idol auditions in Los Angeles, California. Asked by another TV show offering $1000 called, The Contender with Sylvester Stallone, the boys take the opportunity. It turns out to be a boxing contest and Wing sings the ABBA song "Fernando" while being punched repeatedly by her opponent Manuel Fernanda.

Lyrics

Can you hear the drums Fernando?
I remember long ago another starry night like this
In the firelight Fernando
You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar
I could hear the distant drums
And sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar

They were closer now Fernando
Every hour every minute seemed to last eternally
I was so afraid Fernando
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die
And I'm not ashamed to say
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry

There was something in the air that night, the stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me for liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose, there's no regret
If I had to do the same again, I would my friend, Fernando
If I had to do the same again, I would my friend, Fernando

Now we're old and gray Fernando
Since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
Do you still recall the faithful night we crossed the Rio Grande?
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land

There was something in the air that night, the stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me for liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose, there's no regret
If I had to do the same again, I would my friend, Fernando

There was something in the air that night, the stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me for liberty, Fernando
Though we never thought that we could lose, there's no regret
If I had to do the same again, I would my friend, Fernando
Yes if I had to do the same again, I would my friend, Fernando
If I had to do the same again, I would my friend, Fernando
