Song Lyrics

Sou Capoeira e pego na viola

Sou Capoeira e pego na viola

Se essa roda ficar boa não vai

terminar agora

Se essa roda ficar boa não vai

terminar agora

Não vai terminar agora

Não vai terminar agora

Não vai terminar agora

Não vai terminar agora

Toquei berimbau e cantei prá iaiá

Toquei berimbau e cantei prá iaiá

Na roda de Capoeira, quero

ver gunga falar

Na roda de Capoeira, quero ver

gunga falar

Quero ver gunga falar

Quero ver gunga falar

Quero ver gunga falar

Quero ver gunga falar

English translations

I am Capoeira and I take the viola

I am Capoeira and I take the viola

If this roda goes well, I won't stop it

now

If this roda goes well, I won't stop

it now

I won't stop it now

I won't stop it now

I won't stop it now

I won't stop it now

I played the berimbau and sang to

the slave master’s daughter

I played the berimbau and sang to

the slave master’s daughter

In the circle of Capoeira, I want to

see the gunga speak

In the circle of Capoeira, I want to

see the gunga speak

I want to see the gunga speak

I want to see the gunga speak

I want to see the gunga speak

I want to see the gunga speak


History and sentiment behind song

Often sung towards the end of a roda, if the energy has gone down.
