Song Lyrics

Vou dizer minha mulher, Paraná

Capoeira me venceu, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná


Vou me embora pra favela, Paraná

Como já disse que vou, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná


E desvera que o morro, Paraná

Se mudou para cidade, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná


Vou me embora dessa terra, Paraná

Como já disse que vou, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná


Eu aqui não sou querido, Paraná

Mas na minha terra eu sou, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná


Cantando com alegria, Paraná

Mocidade estimada, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná


O enfeite de uma mesa, Paraná

É um garfo e uma colher, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná


O enfeite de uma cama, Paraná

É um homem e uma mulher, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná


Mulher pra ser bonita, Paraná

Não precisa se pintar, Paraná


Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

Paranauê, paranauê, Paraná

History and sentiment behind song

The Meaning of Corrido

Corrido, which literally means run, is also a call and response style of singing with one or two verses. The song involves the roda and each line or verse is required to be responded to. Capoeira songs are symbolic, calling on the Gods,or the elements of the natural world,citing historical locations, battles, bravery or paying respects to former great Capoeiristas.

Parana - A state in Brazil

Parana is the name of a state in Brazil. It has come to represent freedom and is used symbolically in many capoeira songs. Paranaue, is one of Capoeira's most famous and popular song. This song is sung to commemorate the many Capoeiristas who fought the War of Paraguay,more out of compulsion than choice, in order to win freedom from the Brazilian Government.

The History Behind The Song

This song essentially refers to the War of Paraguay, between Paraguay and Brazil. Since logically the the masters and rulers did not want to be on the front line, they deployed a large number of slaves to fight for them with an incentive lifeline; an offer of freedom in case they returned alive after fighting the enemy. The slaves had an added advantage in hand to hand combat, due to their capoeira skills due to which many of them did return alive. On the way back, from the battle, on the banks of the Parana river the now ex slaves gave vent to their feelings through this beautiful song. Despite the tragedy, during which almost seventy five percent of Paraguayans lost their lives, it was an important milestone in the life of the slaves of Brazil and is commemorated to this day throughout the country.
