Oh Pastor que Choras

Oh pastor que choras
O teu rebanho onde está?
Deita as mágoas fora,
Carneiros é o que mais há
 
Uns de finos modos,
Outros vis por desprazer,
Mas carneiros todos,
Com carne de obedecer.
 
Quem te pôs na orelha
Essas cerejas, pastor?
São de cor vermelha,
Vai pintá-las de outra cor.
 
Vai pintar os frutos,
As amoras e os rosais.
Vai pintar de luto
As papoilas e os trigais.
 
Oh pastor que choras
O teu rebanho onde está?
Deita as mágoas fora,
Carneiros é o que mais há.
 
Oh pastor que choras
O teu rebanho onde está?
Deita as mágoas fora,
Carneiros é o que mais há.

Oh Sorrowful Shepherd

Oh sorrowful shepherd,
Where has your flock gone?
Cast your pains away,
For this land abounds with sheep
 
Some are gentile creatures;
Others are unappreciative of your care
But they're sheep alike,
All born to obey
 
Who hung on your ears
Those cherries, shepherd?
Tinted a deep red,
Go and paint them another color
 
Go paint the fruits,
The berries, and the roses
Go paint black
The poppies and the fields
 
Oh sorrowful shepherd,
Where has your flock gone?
Cast your pains away,
For this land abounds with sheep
 
Oh sorrowful shepherd,
Where has your flock gone?
Cast your pains away,
For this land abounds with sheep
 
Thanks!
