Jota Quest - Risco Brasil (English translation)

English translation

Cross Brazil

(I don't give up, I don't give up...)
 
Since the time of caravels, man
People talk about poetizing the favelas
Dude, this tightrope is not a recent thing
 
We're on the street, fighting hard
And upstairs, there's only French champagne
Man, samba is not a recent thing
 
Bribery here, wangling1 over there
In the court, things are like that, private jets
Yeah, they're the best
The people want to get together
And there's Carnival, there's good vibes
There's happy people, the girls are wonderful
Two sides of the same coin
 
I'm Brazilian but no, I don't give up
I have no money but no, I don't give up
 
The art and craft come from the cradle, man
Of living always in this poverty
Mister, this tightrope is not a recent thing
We fight hard, hitting our tambourines
And the royalty embezzles money
Our people doing bad2 is not a recent thing
 
Bribery here, wangling1 over there
In the court, things are like that, private jets
Yeah, they're the best
The people want to get together
And there's Carnival, there's good vibes
There's happy people, the girls are wonderful
Two sides of the same coin
 
I'm Brazilian but no, I don't give up
I have no money but no, I don't give up
I'm Brazilian but no, I don't give up
I have no money but no, I don't give up
No, I don't give up
 
I cross Brazil from side to side
And everyday, in every case
I strike up the damage
And make up lost ground
And brother, I play the game every single day
I try my luck3
 
I'm Brazilian but no, I don't give up
I have no money but no, I don't give up
I'm Brazilian but no, I don't give up
I have no money but no, I don't give up
I'm Brazilian but no, I don't give up...
