Song Lyrics

A hora essa, a hora essa

a hora essa, a hora essa


berimbau tocou na capoeira

berimbau tocou, eu vou joga

berimbau tocou na capoeira

berimbau tocou, eu vou joga


vai la, vai la, vai la, vai la, vai la

vai la, vai la, vai la, vai la, vai la

berimbau played in capoeira

berimbau played, I'll play

berimbau played in capoeira

berimbau played, I'll play


go, go, go, go, go

A hora é essa literally means “The hour is that”.
