Song Lyrics

ê dona alice

não me pegue não

não me pegue,

não me agarre,

não me pegue a mão.

Ê dona alice

não me pegue não

não me pegue,

não me agarre,

não me pegue a mão

Ê dona alice

não me pegue não

English translations

Hey Ms Alice

Don’t grab me, no

Don’t grab me

Don’t clutch me

Don’t grab my hand

Hey Ms Alice

Don’t grab me, no

Don’t grab me

Don’t clutch me

Don’t grab my hand

Hey Ms Alice

Don’t grab me


History and sentiment behind song

A song well suited to a game in which one capoeirista is getting a little too "clingy" with the other. For historical informations, Dona Alice was one of Mestre Bimba's mistresses! This song is about resisting temptation to fall into another woman's arms. A parallel is easily made with the capoeira game.
