Olha aí meia-lua por cima do corpo
Navalha no bolso
A calça engomada não toca no chão

O capoeira
Bate no batuque, bate
A meia lua
Bate no batuque, bate
A rasteira
Bate no batuque, bate
Ponteira
Bate no batuque, bate
Mandinga
Bate no batuque, bate
Berimbau
Bate no batuque, bate

Capoeira tem mandinga
Faca de dois gumes
Não erra não
Olha o negro ligeiro
Que solta a mandinga
Conforme a razão

O capoeira
Bate no batuque, bate
Berimbau
Bate no batuque, bate
Atabaque
Bate no batuque, bate
Pandeiro
Bate no batuque, bate
Mandinga
Bate no batuque, bate

Berimbau tá tocando
A roda formando
O bom capoeira não falta não
Quer banguela
O jogo é bonito
Olha a roda da Capoeira

O capoeira
Bate no batuque, bate
Berimbau
Bate no batuque, bate
Atabaque
Bate no batuque, bate

Starched pants don’t touch the floor

Let loose the mandinga
Depending on the reason

Want banguela
The game is beautiful
Look at the capoeira roda
