Woolsey of la Mancha

Man of la Mancha

Man of la Mancha

I bought Robert Picardo’s two CDs when I saw him at the Creation Vancouver SG-1/ SGA convention and both surprised and pleased to hear “Man of la Mancha” on the Extreme Bob CD (listed as Opera2). That has been one of my favorite musicals since seeing it featured in a Quantum Leap ep.

Woolsey does come into his own in SGA season 5, and I love how they gave him such fine moments in the ep “Inquisition”. It seemed like the perfect pairing to me.

LYRICS :
Hear me now
Oh thou bleak and unbearable world,
Thou art base and debauched as can be
And a knight with his banners all bravely unfurled
Now hurls down his gauntlet to thee!

I am I, Don Quixote,
The Lord of La Mancha,
Destroyer of evil am I
I will march to the sound of the trumpets of glory
Forever to conquer, or die

Hear me, heathens and wizards
And serpents of sin!
All your dastardly doings are past,
For a holy endeavor is now to begin
And virtue shall triumph at last!

I am I, Don Quixote,
The Lord of la Mancha,
My destiny calls and I go,
And the wild winds of fortune
Shall carry me onward,
Oh whithersoever they blow
Whithersoever they blow,
Onward to glory I go!
