Fogo De Palha


Song Lyrics

Iniciante,eu entendo a euforia

Logo que você entrou nessa academia

Tenho bem mais tempo

e essa arte ainda me encanta

Mas água demais,até mesmo

mata a planta

Oi devagar se chega lá

Devagar se chega lá

Devagar se chega lá

Devagar se chega lá

primeiro passo

de um longo caminho

vá devagar, vá bem devagarinho

Fogo de palha acaba logo

isso é um fato

E é de grão em grão

que a galinha enche o papo

Oi, devagar se chega lá

devagar se chega lá

devagar se chega lá

devagar se chega lá

tá com pressa de chegar

devagar se chega lá

English Translation

Beginner, I understand the euphoria

As soon as you entered this academy

I have a lot more time

and this art still enchants me

But too much water, even

kills the plant

Hi slowly if you get there

Slowly get there

Slowly get there

Slowly get there

first step

a long way

go slow, go very slowly

The flash in the pan ends soon

this is a fact

And it's grain by grain

that the chicken fills the crop

Hi, slowly get there

slowly if you get there

slowly if you get there

slowly if you get there

is in a hurry to arrive

slowly if you get there

History and sentiment behind song

This song is one of the most important lesson for any starting Capoeirista. It reflects how patience is the key in capoeira as it takes a long time to develop coordination, speed, flexibility and fast reactions. Trying to progress too quickly will just result in frustration and possibly injury.
