Antigamente

Antigamente
Tudo era diferente
No Rio a gente era gente
Que beleza de lugar
Ali na Lapa
Tinha toda a malandragem
Do Samba e da capoeira
Vale a pena recordar
A malandragem
Não era como hoje em dia
Havia mais poesia
No jeito de malandrar
O bom malandro
De Branco era Boa Praça
Cantava e fazia graça
Era um tipo popular
Mas respeitado
Porque bom da capoeira
Derrubava de rasteira
Sem nem mesmo se sujar
E de noitinha
Embaixo dos lampiões
Lindas moças ruquiões
Olhavam onde passar
Lá pelos arcos
Desenhando de beleza
O céu que a mãe natureza
Reservou pra esse lugar

O céu que a mãe natureza
Reservou pra esse lugar

O céu que a mãe natureza
Reservou pra esse lugar

O céu que a mãe natureza
Reservou pra esse lugar

Ê viva meu Deus

Iê viva meu Deus, camará

Iê que me ajudou

Iê quem me ajudou camará

Iê viva meu Mestre

Iê viva meu mestre, camará

Back then
Everything was different
In Rio the people were people
What a beautiful place
There in Lapa
It had all the trickery
Of Samba and of capoeira
It’s worth recalling
The trickery
It was not like today
There was more poetry
In the way of the trickster
The good scoundrel
Of Branco was Boa Praça
He sang and made fun
He was the popular type
But respected
Because he was good at capoeira
Knocked the rasteira
Without even getting dirty
And in the evening
Underneath the lanterns
Beautiful young prostitutes
They were looking to spend on
There, with curves
Designing their beauty
The sky that mother nature
Reserved for this place

The sky that mother nature
Reserved for this place

The sky that mother nature
Reserved for this place

The sky that mother nature
Reserved for this place

Ê viva meu Deus

Iê viva meu Deus, camará

Iê que me ajudou

Iê quem me ajudou camará

Iê viva meu Mestre

Iê viva meu mestre, camará
