Portugal

E depois, olhos de sal,
Porque foste ao areal
Da nossa costa de mar?
E te perdeste de vista
Nas naus partindo à conquista
Do que quiseste sonhar?
 
E te perdeste de vista
Nas naus partindo à conquista
Do que quiseste sonhar?
 
E depois havia o vento
Beijando a todo o momento
O ventre das caravelas
Marujos olhando os céus
Mal crendo nos olhos seus
Na prenhez das suas velas
 
Marujos olhando os céus
Mal crendo nos olhos seus
Na prenhez das suas velas
 
E depois tornam viagem
Trazem mundos na bagagem
Assim se cumpriu a História
Voltaste de novo à terra
Lavraste o chão e a guerra
E vives só dessa glória
 
Voltaste de novo à terra
Lavraste o chão e a guerra
E vives só dessa glória
 
E depois, muito bailaste
Essa epopeia cantaste
Mas pra nada, afinal
Tu não ligaste, e magoa
À mensagem de Pessoa1
Pra se cumprir Portugal
 
Tu não ligaste, e magoa
À mensagem de Pessoa2
Pra se cumprir Portugal!

Portugal

And after, salt eyes
Why did you go to the sand
Of our sea coast?
And couldn't you be seen anymore
At the ships sailing away to the conquest
Of what you wanted to dream?
 
And couldn't you be seen anymore
On the ships sailing away to the conquest
Of what you wanted to dream?
 
And there was the wind after
Kissing every time
The belly of the ships
Sailors looking at the sky
Barely believing on their eyes
In the pregnancy of their sails
 
Sailors looking at the sky
Barely believing on their eyes
In the pregnancy of their sails
 
And they get back from the travel after
They bring worlds in the luggage
That's how History has been fulfilled
You returned again to the land
You ploughed the floor and the war
And you only live off that glory
 
You returned again to the land
You ploughed the floor and the war
And you only live off that glory
 
And you danced a lot after
This epic you sung
But for nothing, in the end
You didn't care, and sadden
A Mensagem of Pessoa1
For Portugal to be accomplished
 
You didn't care, and sadden
A Mensagem of Pessoa2
For Portugal to be accomplished!
