A Capoeira Tem Que Ter


Song Lyrics

O capoeira tem que ter molejo

O capoeira tem que balançar

O capoeira tem que ter boneco

Paulão da Holanda

E Paulinho Sabía


O capoeira tem que ter molejo

O capoeira tem que balançar

O capoeira tem que ter alegria

Muita energia pra poder jogar


O capoeira tem que ter molejo

O capoeira tem que balançar

O capoeira tem que ter mandinga

Muita malicia pra poder jogar


O capoeira tem que ter molejo

O capoeira tem que balançar

O capoeira tem que ter boneco

English Translation

Capoeira has to have a bounce

Capoeira has to balance

Capoeira must have a puppet

Paulão from Holland

And Paulinho Sabía


Capoeira has to have a bounce

Capoeira has to balance

Capoeira has to have joy

Lots of energy to be able to play


Capoeira has to have a bounce

Capoeira has to balance

Capoeira must have mandinga

Lots of malice to be able to play


Capoeira has to have a bounce

Capoeira has to balance

Capoeira must have a doll
