History and sentiment behind song

Cajuê refers to Cajueiro, which is a tree that grows cashew nuts. In Brazil there is also a city named Cajueiro and this song is probably referring to that city.

The words "lecô" and "loia" do not have literal translations. Some translations show them to meaning "lecture" as in "manda leco" or "i'm going to lecture you" and other translations make them out to just be sounds used for rhyming.

The calls in the song are all references to names of mestres.
