Bate forte o tambor
Que eu quero é tic tic tic tic tac

É nesta dança que meu boi balança
E o povão de fora vem para brincar
É nesta dança que meu boi balança
E o povão de fora vem para brincar

As barrancas de terras caidas
Faz barrento o nosso rio-mar
As barrancas de terras caidas
Faz barrento o nosso rio-mar

Amazonas rio da minha vida
Imagem tão linda
Que meu Deus criou

Fez o céu a mata e a terra
Uniu os caboclos
Construiu o amor

Fez o céu a mata e a terra
Uniu os caboclos
Construiu o amor

This is the dance that makes my bull swing
And the foreign people come to dance along

Palisades of falling layers of sand.
make our huge river become mud-coloured (=Amazon River)

Amazonas, river of my life
A very beautiful landscape
that my God created

He created the sky, the forest and the earth
He united the men
and built love

He created the sky, the forest and the earth
He united the men
and built love

Author's comments:

The "bull" he's singing is related to the folk characters of Parintins's Festival, boi Garantido e boi Caprichoso ** "caboclos" = here can mean the native men/indians but not exclusively ** "de fora" is used to qualify something that came from a region outside the region/state/country the speaker is. Here, people come from all places - from Brazil and abroad - to see the Festival ** "Rio-mar" means a river that looks like a sea/ocean

More precisely, "caboclo"* refers to someone of mixed Brazilian indian and white races. However, this word is also informally used to refer to people of any "race" that live in the rivers of the Amazon Basin.

*: "cabocla" for woman.
