Eu Vi A Cutia Com Coco No Dente

Song Lyrics

Eu vi a cutia com coco no dente,

Com coco no dente com coco no

dente

Eu vi a cutia com coco no dente

Comendo farinha, olhando pra gente.

Eu vi a cutia com coco no dente

Com coco no dente com coco no

dente.

English translations

I saw a cutia with coconut in its teeth

With coconut in its teeth with coconut

in its teeth

I saw a cutia with coconut in its teeth

Eating flour, looking at us

I saw a cutia with coconut in its teeth

With coconut in its teeth with coconut

in its teeth


History and sentiment behind song

A small chipmunk-like rodent found in the forests and "capoeiras" of Brazil. Here, "capoeira" refers to a grassy field clearned from the forest, not the movement form. This song remarks upon a cutia unashamedly showing coconut dangling from its teeth.
