Theme Song Lyrics

When daggers are pointed at innocent hearts
And muskets are ready to fire
When tyrants ride high and govern with fear
And the forces of evil conspire
Then from out of the night, a hero must ride
With courage than even a mask won't disguise
They turn to the man called Zorro

One whose larger than life and defender of all
It's this man who the people acclaim
He's the one who strikes back
For the poor and oppressed
A hero whose name is Zorro
His name is Zorro!


TRIVIA NOTE: Filmed in Spain, the series was based on the 1919 story written by Johnston McCulley. Henry Darrow had previously been the voice of Zorro in the animated series THE NEW ADVENTURES OF ZORRO and played Zorro in the live-action comedy series ZORRO AND SON.
