Capoeira Music - Era um Domingo de Alegria

Autor: Mestre Boneco, Grupo Capoeira Brasil



Era um domingo de alegria - Letras

Era um domingo de alegria

Tocava Angola e Santa Maria

E foi assim que começou animado

Com muitos alunos e também convidados


Dois capoeira rezavam agachados

Pedindo a Deus a sua proteçao

Rodou a meia-lua levou uma rasteira

Assim jogavam os dois capoeiras


Jogaram tanto que acabaram no chão

Com os dois sorrindo e apertando a mao

Assim procede quem é capoeira

Joga bonito e não fala besteira


English Translation

It was a Sunday of happiness It was playing

Angola and Santa Maria (toques of the berimbau)

It was like this that started the fun

With many students and also invited guests


Two capoeira players were waiting crouched (before the berimbau)

Asking god for his protection

There was a meia-lua (type of capoeira kick) which called a rasteira (a foot sweep)

This is how the two capoeiristas played


They played so much that they finished on the floor

With both smiling and shaking hands

This is the behavior of who is capoeira

They play beautiful and don't talk crap
