Song Lyrics

No berimbau seu Suassuna

Alegrava a multidao

No pandeiro Ezequiel

Cantava com emoção

No atabaque Itapoan

Que batia pra valer

E o coro respondia

Que o peixe do mar

Xáreu xerelete

Que o peixe do mar

Xáreu xerelete


Que o peixe do mar

Xáreu xerelete


A vadiagem assim seguia

Com tamanha animação

A galera animada

Fazia o coro na palma da mão

Fazia o coro na palma da mão


Fazia o coro na palma da mão


Mais aquela brincadeira

Parecia não ter fim

Pois o dia já raiava

E ninguém arredava o pé dali

Foi então que Suassuna

Em sua louvação Cantou alto e bem claro

menino quem foi seu mestre?

Meu mestre foi Bimba

Lá de santo Amaro

Meu mestre foi Bimba

Lá de santo Amaro


Meu mestre foi Bimba

Lá de santo Amaro

English Translation

At the berimbau your Suassuna

Cheered the crowd

On the pandeiro Ezequiel

Sang with emotion

At the atabaque Itapoan

That really hit

And the choir answered

That sea fish

Xáreu xerelete

That sea fish

Xáreu xerelete


That sea fish

Xáreu xerelete


The loitering went on like this

With such excitement

The lively crowd

I used to sing the chorus

I used to sing the chorus


I used to sing the chorus


Another joke

It seemed to have no end

For the day was already breaking

And no one took their foot off there

It was then that Suassuna

In your praise He sang loud and clear

boy who was your master?

My master was Bimba

There from Santo Amaro

My master was Bimba

There from Santo Amaro


My master was Bimba

There from Santo Amaro
