Malandragem (Trickery) - CM Capú

Portuguese

Malandragem só sai daqui

Quando essa roda acabar

Se o meu mestre disser iê

Ou se a cavalaria tocar

Capoeira é a antiga arte

Foi o negro inventando

Me diga quem é brasileiro

E não tem um pouco de malandro

Malandragem

Oi Malandro é malandro

Capoeira

Oi Malandro é malandro

Na Bahia

Oi Malandro é malandro

Na ladeira

Oi Malandro é malandro

Malandragem

Oi Malandro é malandro

Ginga do capoeira

Oi Malandro é malandro

Na Bahia

Oi Malandro é malandro

Na ladeira

Oi Malandro é malandro

 

Finge que vai mas não vai

Bicho vem eu me faço de morto

Mas se a coisa apertar

É pra Deus que eu peço socorro

Entro e saio sem me machucar

Subo e desço sem me escurregar

Vou louvando o criador da mandinga

O malandro que inventou a ginga

O sol faz o chão esquentar

Calma moça chuva vem esfriar

A expressão no rosto da menina

Ao saber que esta é minha sina

Bato forte não devagar

Cuidado quando se levantar

Berimbau já fez sua cantinga

Coração me impulsa pra cima

English

Trickery only leaves here

When the this roda ends

If my mestre says iê

Or if the rhythm of cavalaria is played

Capoeira is an old art

The black man kept inventing

Tell who is Brazilian

And is not  a bit of a trickster

Pretend that you go but you don't

The beast comes but I pretend to be dead

But if I'm in danger

I ask God for help

I enter and leave without getting hurt

I come up and down without slipping
I'll praise the creator of mandinga

The Trickster that invented ginga

The sun heats the floor up

Relax girl the rain comes to cool it down

The expression on the girl's face

When finding out that this is my fate

I hit hard, not slow

Be careful when getting up

Berimbau already sung it's song

My heart lifts me up
