Song Lyrics

Eu pisei na folha seca

ouvi fazer chuê chuà

chuê chuê chuê chuà

ouvi fazer chuê chuà

chuê chuê chuê chuà

ouvi fazer chuê chuà

English translations

I stepped on a dry leaf

and heard it go crunch, crunch

crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch

and heard it go crunch, crunch

crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch

and heard it go crunch, crunch


History and sentiment behind song

This song has been adapted from a famous samba by the group Fundo de Quintal, known for being pioneers of pagode (party) music.

We might imagine that it is about a slave hiding in the forest, fearful knowing every step might be heard by the slave hunter, called the Capitão do Mato ("Captain of the Jungle").
