Song Lyrics

Eu vi a luta, eu tava la

Eu vi a luta, eu tava la

Dois guerreiros se pegando dentro do canavial

Eu vi a luta, eu tava la

Eu vi a luta, eu tava la

Dois guerreiros se pegando dentro do canavial

Lutava Maculelê na terra do Manganga

Um gritava para o outro

Tumba ê caboclo

Tumba la é ca

E tumba ê guerreiro

Tumba la é ca

E tumba ê Popo

Tumba la é ca

E nao me deixe so

Tumba la é ca

Tumba e caboclo

Tumba la é ca
