Song Lyrics

Adão, Adão

Oi cadê Salomé, Adão?

Oi cadê Salomé, Adão?

O foi na Ilha de Maré

Adão, Adão

Oi cadê Salomé, Adão?

Oi cadê Salomé, Adão?

Oi Salomé foi passear

Adão Adão

Oi cadé Salomé? Adão

English translations

Adam, Adam

Where is Salomé, Adam?

Where is Salomé, Adam?

Salomé went to Maré Island

Adam, Adam

Where is Salomé, Adam?

Where is Salomé, Adam?

Salomé went for a walk

Adam, Adam

But where is Salomé, Adam?


History and sentiment behind song

In the Christian Bible, Salomé is known as the step-daughter of Herod the Great, who danced the Dance of the Seven Veils. She is said to have asked for the head of John the Baptist. What does Adam have to do with this? Perhaps because he is the "original man," Salomé wants to claim him as well.
