Song Lyrics

Onde está a liberdade,

Se a algema não se quebrou,

O negro quer felicidade,

O negro também quer ser doutor

Princesa Isabel, Princesa Isabel,

Liberdade do negro só tá no papel.

Princesa Isabel, Princesa Isabel,

Liberdade do negro só tá no papel.

Princesa Isabel, Princesa Isabel,

Onde está a liberdade,

Mas onde está a liberdade,

Se a algema não se quebrou,

O negro quer felicidade,

O negro também quer ser doutor

Princesa Isabel, Princesa Isabel,

Liberdade do negro só tá no papel.

Princesa Isabel, Princesa Isabel,

Liberdade do negro só tá no papel

If the cuff is not broken?

Freedom of the black is only on

paper.

Isabel Princess, Isabel Princess,

Where is the freedom,

Where is the freedom

If the cuff is not broken?

The Black man wants happiness,

The black man also wants to be a

Freedom of the black is only on
