A canoa virou, marinheiro

No fundo do mar tem dinheiro

A canoa virou, marinheiro

No fundo do mar tem segrêdo

A canoa virou, marinheiro

No fundo do mar tem malícia

A canoa virou, marinheiro

No fundo do mar tem capoeira

A canoa virou, marinheiro

Mas se virou, deixa virar

A canoa virou, marinheiro

Oi está lá, no fundo do mar

A canoa virou, marinheiro

In deep sea there is money

In deep sea there are secrets

The canoe capsized, sailor

In deep sea there is trickery

The canoe capsized, sailor

In deep sea there is capoeira

The canoe capsized, sailor

But if it capsized, leave it

The canoe capsized, sailor

There it is, in the deep sea

The canoe capsized, sailor
