Folha Seca 


Mas eu pisei na folha seca

Mayez ehoo peeh-ZEY nah FOH-lya SEH-kah

But I stepped on the dry leaf

Eu ouví fazer xuê xuâ

Ehoo oh-VEEH fah-ZERH shooh-WEH shooh-WAH

I heard it make (the sound) xuê xuâ / And it went xuê xuâ

Xuê xuê xuê xuâ

shooh-WEH shooh-WEH shooh-WEH shooh-WAH

Xuê xuê xuê xuâ

 

(Coro/Chorus)

Eu ouví fazer xuê xuâ

Ehoo oh-VEEH fah-ZERH shooh-WEH shooh-WAH

I heard it make (the sound) xuê xuâ / And it went xuê xuâ

 

Xuê xuê xuê xuâ

shooh-WEH shooh-WEH shooh-WEH shooh-WAH

Xuê xuê xuê xuâ

 

(Coro/Chorus)

Eu ouví fazer xuê xuâ

Ehoo oh-VEEH fah-ZERH shooh-WEH shooh-WAH

I heard it make (the sound) xuê xuâ / And it went xuê xuâ
