Iê parana

Parana parana iê parana

iê parana

É para boa maneira

iê parana

Quero ouvir vocês cantar

iê parana

Meia lua e rasteira

iê parana

Na roda de capoeira

iê parana

Parana parana iê parana

iê parana

Meu para parana iê parana

iê parana

Meu para é melhor que você parana

iê parana

E o coro vai ajudar parana

iê parana

Terra boa de morar parana

iê parana

Terra que você planta dar parana

In the capoeira roda

Stop me, Parana iê Parana

My Para is better than your Parana

And the choir will help parana

Good land to live on parana

iê parana

Land where you established parana
