The Magic Of Brazilian Carnival (A Banda, Chico Buarque)


I was idle whith my life

My love called me
To see the band pass
Singing things of love

My people suffered
Farewell to the pain
To see the band pass
Singing things of love

The serious man who counted money stopped
The lighthouse keeper who had an advantage stopped
The girlfriend who counted the stars
Stopped to see, hear and pass

The sad girl who lived quietly smiled
The sad rose that lived closed opened
And the whole little girl was taken aback
To see the band pass
Singing things of love

I was at my life's end
My love called me
To see the band pass
Singing things of love

My people suffered
Farewell to the pain
To see the band pass
Singing things of love

The weak old man forgot his tiredness and thought
That he was still young to go out on the terrace and danced
The ugly girl leaned out the window.
Thinking that the band was playing for her

The gay march spread on the avenue and insisted
The full moon that lived hidden appeared
My whole city adorned itself
To see the band pass by singing things of love

But to my disenchantment
What was sweet is over
Everything took its place
After the band passed

And everyone in your corner
In each corner a pain
After the band passes by
Singing things of love
After the band passes by
Singing things of love
