No Cativeiro

Foi lá
Onde tudo aconteceu
No tempo do cativeiro
A capoeira então nasceu

Foi lá
Onde tudo aconteceu
No tempo do cativeiro
A capoeira então nasceu

Vindo da sua terra natal
Viajando noite e dia
Como fosse um animal

Foi lá
Onde tudo aconteceu
No tempo do cativeiro
A capoeira então nasceu

No navio negreiro
Jogado no meio do mar
Assustado sem saber
Onde que ia parar

Foi lá
Onde tudo aconteceu
No tempo do cativeiro
A capoeira então nasceu

Foi na senzala
Quando ia descansar
Praticava com o irmão
Um jeito de se libertar

Foi lá
Onde tudo aconteceu
No tempo do cativeiro
A capoeira então nasceu

It was there
Where it all happened
In the time of slavery
Capoeira was then born

It was there
Where it all happened
In the time of slavery
Capoeira was then born

Coming from your homeland
Travelling night and day
Like an animal does

It was there
Where it all happened
In the time of slavery
Capoeira was then born

On the slave ship
Played amidst the sea
Frightened without knowing
Where it would stop

It was there
Where it all happened
In the time of slavery
Capoeira was then born

It was in the slave quarter
When he rested
Practiced with his brother
A way to break free

It was there
Where it all happened
In the time of slavery
Capoeira was then born
