The Queen of Axé (The Evil Queen)

A Tupi–Guarani paradise
A tropical tribe
From Gal's 'Índia' 1
From Preta Gil2
Naked in virtual vinyl
 
Anarchic African matriarchs
Dressed like baianas3
 
Gisele, Beatriz and Adriana
Use Prada, Gucci and Moma
The girl from Ipanema is electronic
And Rapunzel is symphonic, symphonic
 
Below the equator4 there's love
Below the equator4 there's chaos
Below the equator4 there's sex, violence and carnaval, carnaval
 
Me and her, me and her
Me and her, her and me (and love)
Me and her, me and her
Me and her, her and me

The first of us
In the Academy14
And every woman that stands out sets us free
 
I'm neither Cinderella
Nor a Sleeping Beauty
I'm of an orisha15
 
I am the queen
I'm neither Cinderella
Nor a Sleeping Beauty
I am Daniela
The evil queen, evil, evil, evil
The evil queen, evil, evil, evil
The queen
 
Of macumba, of umbanda16
The root of my Axé17
Of Candomblé18
Of macumba, of umbanda16
The root of my Axé17
Of Candomblé18
