Song Lyrics

Tô dormindo to sonhando,

tão falando mal de mim

Tô Dormindo tô Sonhando

Ô não me deixam sossegar

Tô Dormindo tô Sonhando

Vou benzer meu patuá

Tô DormindotTô Sonhando

Tão falando mal de mim

Tô Dormindo tô Sonhando

Agora vou acordar

Tô Dormindo tô Sonhando

Quem falou não está longe

tô dormindo tô sonhando

Na roda de capoeira

English translations

I am sleeping I am dreaming

they are talking badly about me

I am sleeping i am dreaming

Oh, they don't let me rest

I am sleeping i am dreaming

I'm going to bless my patuá

i am sleeping i am dreaming

they are talking badly about me

I am sleeping i am dreaming

now i'm going to wake up

I am sleeping i am dreaming

Whoever spoke isn't far

I am sleeping i am dreaming

In the roda of capoeira


History and sentiment behind song

The mestre will often make fun of a student who plays badly, saying: "what, were you sleeping in the roda?" An oft-told anecdote is of one mestre getting a student to wake up by hitting him over the head with a berimba.
