Nara Leão - A Banda (English translation)

Portuguese

A Banda

Estava à toa na vida
O meu amor me chamou
Pra ver a banda passar
Cantando coisas de amor
 
A minha gente sofrida
Despediu-se da dor
Pra ver a banda passar
Cantando coisas de amor
 
O homem sério que contava dinheiro parou
O faroleiro que contava vantagem parou
A namorada que contava as estrelas parou
Para ver, ouvir e dar passagem
 
A moça triste que vivia calada sorriu
A rosa triste que vivia fechada se abriu
E a meninada toda se assanhou
Pra ver a banda passar
Cantando coisas de amor
 
Estava à toa na vida
O meu amor me chamou
Pra ver a banda passar
Cantando coisas de amor
 
A minha gente sofrida
Despediu-se da dor
Pra ver a banda passar
Cantando coisas de amor
 
O velho fraco se esqueceu do cansaço e pensou
Que ainda era moço pra sair no terraço e dançou
A moça feia debruçou na janela
Pensando que a banda tocava pra ela
 
A marcha alegre se espalhou na avenida e insistiu
A lua cheia que vivia escondida surgiu
Minha cidade toda se enfeitou
Pra ver a banda passar cantando coisas de amor
 
Mas para meu desencanto
O que era doce acabou
Tudo tomou seu lugar
Depois que a banda passou
 
E cada qual no seu canto
Em cada canto uma dor
Depois da banda passar
Cantando coisas de amor
Depois da banda passar
Cantando coisas de amor...

The band

I was doing nothing in life
My love called me
To see the band passing by
Singing about love
 
My suffering people
Bid farewell to pain
To see the band passing by
Singing about love
 
The serious man who counted money stopped
The lighthouse keeper who counted vantage stopped
The girlfriend who counted stars stopped
To see, hear and let them pass
 
The sad girl who lived silently smiled
The sad rose that lived enclosed opened
And all the children got excited
To see the band passing by
Singing some love words
 
I was doing nothing in life
My love called me
To see the band passing by
Singing about love
 
My suffering people
Bid farewell to pain
To see the band passing by
Singing about love
 
The old feeble man forgot about his fatigue and tought
That he still was a young man to go to the balcony and he danced
The ugly girl bent over the windowpane
Thinking the band was playing for her
 
The joyful march spread along the avenue and went on
The full moon that was hiding appeared
My city adorned itself all over
To see the band passing by, singing about love
 
But for my disappointment
What was sweet ended
Everything took back its place
After the band had gone
 
And each one in his corner
In each corner a pain
After the band had gone
Singing about love
After the band had gone
Singing about love...
