Santa In A T-Shirt

Santa Claus will come in a T-Shirt
Using a flipflop and jeans shorts
Playing the agogô instead of the bells
Singing his namesake's1 'Palpite Infeliz'...who wrote this song
Then, it will be Christmas Day
The night will be happier
 
He will extend a towel on the gutters
Of every suburban square of the country
He will bring liquor, rice, beans, chili pepper
Dulce de leche, gummy beans and quindim2
Then, it will be Christmas Day
The night will be happier
 
And children blocks will come over
From their newspaper beds
And drag-queens
Carnaval's thin men3
With their feet on the ground
Soldiers of passion
A bandoline
Someone will bring along a guitar
A tambourine
And the crowd will dance as the bells ring
 
Back on the hill, another boy will be born
And in sunrise, kiskadees will come
On Christmas Day
We can be happy
 
And children blocks will come over
From their newspaper beds
And drag-queens
Carnaval's thin men3
With their feet on the ground
Soldiers of passion
A bandoline
Someone will bring along a guitar
A tambourine
And the crowd will dance as the bells ring
 
Back on the hill, another boy will be born
And in sunrise, kiskadees will come
On Christmas Day
We can be happy
 
Back on the hill, another boy will be born
And in sunrise, kiskadees will come
On Christmas Day
We can be happy
Happy, happy...
