Galician-Portuguese

Ai, solidom!

Se passeares no adro
Ai solidom, solidom!
No dia do meu enterro
Ai, ai, ai, ai, ai...
Diz à terra que não coma
Ai solidom, solidom!
As tranças ao meu cabelo
Ai, ai, ai, ai, ai...
 
Ô bonequinha agora, agora... Ô bonequinha!
Ô bonequinha agora, já!
Se te apanhasse aqui sozinha,
Ô bonequinha!
Dava-te um beijo na carinha
Ô bonequinha! Ô bonequinha!
 
A oliveira se queixa
Ai solidom, solidom!
Se queixa e tem razão
Ai, ai, ai, ai, ai...
Que lhe colhem a azeitona
Ai solidom, solidom!
Deitam-lhe a folha ao chão
Ai, ai, ai, ai, ai...
 
Ô bonequinha agora, agora... Ô bonequinha!
Ô bonequinha agora, já!
Se te apanhasse aqui sozinha,
Ô bonequinha!
Dava-te um beijo na carinha
Ô bonequinha! Ô bonequinha!
 
Ai, ai, ai, ai, ai...

Submitter's comments:

This folk song is written in the common dialect that is spoken in Southern Galicia and Northern Portugal, and the language harks back to the 16th Century, before many of the traits in modern Portuguese were developed - even if here, the lyrics have been "homogenized" to incorporate elements of both modern Portuguese and modern Galician (as indicated by the Reintegrationist Movement's grammar and orthographic rules). Needless to say, I have not done any of this - I am simply explaining how the lyrics have been presented and why they differ from standard Portuguese.

Thanks!
