Song Lyrics

Amanhã é dia santo

Um, dois, três

Dia de povo de deus

Três e três: seis

Quem tem roupa vai na missa

Seis e três: nove

Quem não tem faz como eu

Nove e três: doze


Um dois três

Três e três: seis

Seis e três: nove

Nove e três: doze


Um dois três

Três e três: seis

Seis e três: nove

Nove e três: doze

English translations

Tomorrow is Saint’s Day

One, two, three

Day of God’s People

Three and three: six

Those that have clothes go to Mass

Six and three: nine

Those that don’t, do like me

Nine and three: twelve


One, Two, Three

Three and Three: Six

Six and Three: Nine

Nine and Three: Twelve


One, Two, Three

Three and Three: Six

Six and Three: Nine

History and sentiment behind song

Song is in reference to the fact that Capoeira was traditionally an activity of the marginalised members of society – marginalised even within the black community.

Those that had better, more respectable jobs and could afford nice clothes would go to church. Those that didn’t have steady work and scraped out a living by any means they could would hang out on the streets and play Capoeira.
