Bandido was the Spanish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1990 in Zagreb performed by Azúcar Moreno.

Toñi and Encarna Salazar, the singers, initially missed their cues when coming on stage to perform the song, so they left the stage in confusion with the music still playing. The two ladies came back on stage for a second time and performed the song with success.

The song was performed first preceding Greece. At the close of voting, despite their technical problems, it finished in 5th place with 96 points.

Lyrics

Ladies and Gentlemen
It's showtime at the Apollo Theater
Everybody, the Hardest-Working Man in Show Business

La luna me embrujó y me llevó hasta ti
Veneno del amor que yo feliz bebí
Y aunque mi pecho ardió y me abrasó la piel
Me supo dulce como la miel

Tus ojos, bandido, robaron con cuentos
La sangre y la vida de mi corazón
Tu ausencia en mis noches provoca lamentos
Suspiros y llantos de oscura pasión

Y ahora cada vez que de mi lado te vas
Siento el dolor crecer más y más

Tus ojos, bandido, robaron con cuentos
La sangre y la vida de mi corazón
Tu ausencia en mis noches provoca lamentos
Suspiros y llantos de oscura pasión

Así que abrázame con furia de huracán
Que el fuego de tu amor sea como un volcán
Y luego bésame, atrápame en tu red
Que al fin tus labios colmen mi sed

Tus ojos, bandido, robaron con cuentos
La sangre y la vida de mi corazón
Tu ausencia en mis noches provoca lamentos
Suspiros y llantos de oscura pasión

Tus ojos, bandido, robaron con cuentos
La sangre y la vida de mi corazón
Tu ausencia en mis noches provoca lamentos
Suspiros y llantos de oscura pasión

Ladies and Gentlemen
It's showtime at the Apollo Theater
Everybody, the Hardest-Working Man in Show Business

The moon bewitched me and took me to you
Love poison that I drank happily
And although my chest burned and scorched my skin
For me, it tasted as sweet as honey

Your eyes, bandit, stole with lies
The blood and the life of my heart
Your absence in my nights causes sadness
Sighs and tears of dark passion

And now every time that you leave me
I feel the pain growing bigger and bigger

Your eyes, bandit, stole with lies
The blood and the life of my heart
Your absence in my nights causes sadness
Sighs and tears, and dark passion

So embrace me with hurricane fury
May the fire of your love be like a volcano
And then kiss me, trap me in your net
May your lips finally quench my thirst

Your eyes, bandit, stole with lies
The blood and the life of my heart
Your absence in my nights causes sadness
Sighs and tears, and dark passion

Your eyes, bandit, stole with lies
The blood and the life of my heart
Your absence in my nights causes sadness
Sighs and tears, and dark passion
