Song Lyrics

Se você tem molejo no corpo

É bom capoeira e sabe o que faz

Se você tem uma meta na vida

Capoeira sempre faz, capoeira


Ê capoeira, ê capoeirá


Meu mestre sempre dizia

Menino toma cuidado

Pra jogar a capoeira

Nunca dê seu golpe errado, capoeira


É capoeira, é capoeira


Eu me chamo capoeira

Trago o berimbau na mão

Eu gosto de tocar benguela

Gosto de fazer canção, capoeira


É capoeira, é capoeira


Berimbau tem sete palmos

Sete palmos de altura

Eu deixo a capoeira

Dentro de uma seputu


É capoeira, é capoeira


Berimbau tem sete palmos

Sete palmos de altura

Eu só deixo a capoeira

Dentro de uma sepultura, capoeira


É capoeira, é capoeira

English translations

If you have softness in your body

He is good capoeira and knows what he does

If you have a goal in life

Capoeira always does, capoeira


Capoeira, capoeira


My master always said

Boy take care

To play capoeira

Never give your wrong blow, capoeira


It's capoeira, it's capoeira


My name is capoeira

I have the berimbau in my hand

I like to play benguela

I like to make songs, capoeira


It's capoeira, it's capoeira


Berimbau has seven hands

Seven feet tall

I leave capoeira

Inside a grave


It's capoeira, it's capoeira


Berimbau has seven hands

Seven feet tall

I just leave capoeira

Inside a grave, capoeira


It's capoeira, it's capoeira


History and sentiment behind song

Capoeira's philosophy is that it comes from being the art of oppressed people: if you fight force with force (such as blocking a blow), the stronger force will always win. But if you avoid the blow, it doesn't matter how big or strong your opponent is. Agility is better than brute strength in capoeira.
