History and sentiment behind song

The song "Quebra gereba" is well known in capoeira rodas as a song of challenge. When sung, it is characterized by a fast game, where capoeira exchange blows to see who will leave "broken". To sing "you break today, tomorrow who breaks you?", they do allude to patience that a capoeirista has to strike at the right time. And a warning that the "fight" will not be forgotten.

Gereba (jeh-DEH-bah): This is the last name of a popular person whose name children would call. It can also refer to "melon", and slang for the male sex organ. Gereba also means someone who is hard to take down.
