Lero-Lero (Hey, What’s Up) Look who’s coming now: Just, "Hey, What’s up?" and a glance eye to eye He’s on our side No hurry, no delay Everything’s all right He’s of the same blood Our flow is telepathic Beyond words And when life gets tough It’s just, "Hey, What’s up?" And a glance eye to eye And I’m back to all right This is for you, my brother This is for you, my brother Everything’s all right __________________ Quem vem ali agora: É lero-lero olho no olho e nada mais Esse é do mesmo time Não tem pressa e nem atraso Tudo é em paz Parece o mesmo sangue Quando um pensa o outro sabe Nem fala não E quando a vida aperta É lero-lero olho no olho e me volta a paz Quero dizer valeu irmão Quero dizer valeu irmão E nada mais

Jane Doe left town to the rhythm of love Set sail without fear She won’t miss a step along the way She’s gonna make it Where would it all get her? And fear crept in slowly But her desire to dream Just took over Fixed on her goal, the clock ticking A life still to be made The world opening itself up She’s understanding It was a bridge to be crossed Where would the bridge get her? And fear crept in slowly But her desire to dream Just took over ________________________ Fulaninha se foi na toada do amor Embarcou sem medo de cair Sem render nenhum passo de todo trajeto Dali iria até o fim Onde é que aquilo ia dar E o medo vinha devagar Mas um desejo de sonhar Tomava conta do lugar Arretada na meta o relógio rodando E a vida longe de existir Quando o mundo se abrindo, Fulana entendendo Era a ponte para se cumprir Onde é que ponte ia dar E o medo vinha devagar Mas um desejo de sonhar Tomava conta do lugar

It happened at a Baile funk* She got home late at night Wanton, almost nude Still whistling the refrain Isabel, brunette, Curly hair A poem of waist and mouth With a bright, seductive gaze It happened at a Baile funk, She danced, madly Her sweat bathed her many partners She sang the refrain with no shame… *baile funk – a party featuring Rio funk music (a genre with origins in Miami Bass) ____________________ Foi num baile funk E chegou de madrugada Desencabulada, quase tava nua Inda assoviava um refrão Isabel, morena Do cabelo cacheado Uma poesia de cintura e boca De olhar atento e sudutor Foi num baile funk, Dançou, deseperada Seu suor banhava os parceiros muitos O refrão cantava sem pudor...

Sung from the point of view of a “motoboy”, who zips through the city making deliveries, “Alento” is a celebration of São Paulo’s energy and industriousness. The basic rhythm of the song is a capoeira rhythm called maculelê lyrics I get up early with my foot on the brake And the whole world begins to turn In the bathroom, I look in the mirror I take in the courage to get on the move Wallet and keys in my pocket my cell phone is charging Listen up, better let me be Nobody’s going to hold me back Yeah, I’m in control of my life So happiness will come So my dreams can fly Don’t mess with me If I’m laughing, I’m laughing for you Look up at the sky, honey I wasn’t born to fake it I’m tuned in to the love We have for life ______________ Acordo cedo com o pé no freio E o mundo inteiro começa a girar No banheiro, olho no espelho Crio coragem e ponho pra andar A carteira, a chave no bolso Tá carregando o meu celular Acredita, ninguém apita Quem vai querer hoje me segurar É, eu tô na vida e é pra virar Que a felicidade vem Eu tô sonhando mais além Não nem vem aqui me atazanar Se eu tô rindo é pra você Olha pro céu meu bem É eu não fui feita pra fingir Eu tô ligada é no amor Que se tem pra viver
