Capoeira Song of the Week: Ô Sereia, Ô Sereia

 You submit the songs. We show you the lyrics, translation, and give some phonetic spelling to help your pronunciation.

The format works like this:

The lyrics in Portuguese are in bold

The phonetic spelling for pronunciation is in italics with the STRESSED SYLLABLES IN ALL CAPITALS with syllables se-pa-ra-ted by dash-es

The English translation is in regular text

 

Thanks for the submission Alfinete.  Enjoy!

 

Ô Sereia, Ô Sereia


Ô Sereia, Ô Sereia

Oh seh-RAY-ah, oh seh-RAY-ah

Oh mermaid, oh mermaid

(coro/chorus)

Ô Sereia, Ô Sereia

Oh seh-RAY-ah, oh seh-RAY-ah

Oh mermaid, oh mermaid

 

Quem quiser mulher bonita vai lá na Ilha de Maré

Kehnh keeh-SEHRH mooh-LYEHRH boh-NEEH-tah vaye lah nah EEH-lyah deeh Mah-RAY

Those who want beautiful women go to the Island of Maré

(coro/chorus)

Quem quiser mulher bonita vai lá na Ilha de Maré

Kehnh keeh-SEHRH mooh-LYEHRH boh-NEEH-tah vaye lah nah EEH-lyah deeh Mah-RAY

Those who want beautiful women go to the Island of Maré

 

* Disclaimer:  This the version we sing in class.  There is another version of the solo that a lot of people like that is very similar but different.  See if you can find the lyrics in Portuguese and I will add them here.
