Falou, falou da escravidão, falou,
Falou, falou da opressão, falou,
Falou, lá nos tempos de Bimba, falou,
Falou, hoje se escutou

Falou, falou da escravidão, falou,
Falou, falou da opressão, falou,
Falou, lá nos tempos de Bimba, falou,
Falou, hoje se escutou


O negro que sofria na senzala
Trabalhava na fazenda da feitor,
E um dia ele escutou um lamento
Era Zumbi dos Palmares
Foi ele que quem libertou
Hoje falou…

Falou, falou da escravidão, falou,
Falou, falou da opressão, falou,
Falou, lá nos tempos de Bimba, falou,
Falou, hoje se escutou


Berimbau ajudava os capoeiras
Lá no tempo, lá no tempo da opressão
Se escutava o toque de cavalaria
Quando a policia seguia, berimbau já me avisou
Hoje falou…

Falou, falou da escravidão, falou,
Falou, falou da opressão, falou,
Falou, lá nos tempos de Bimba, falou,
Falou, hoje se escutou


Manuel foi o mestre respeitado
Criador da arte da regional,
Hoje em dia seu nome será lembrado
Já não se esqueçeu do homem que a capoeira falou
Hoje falou…

Falou, falou da escravidão, falou,
Falou, falou da opressão, falou,
Falou, lá nos tempos de Bimba, falou,
Falou, hoje se escutou


Historia que se narra do passado
Jogadores que se escutam até hoje
E os cantos que me levam pelos tempos
Lembrando esses momentos onde o berimbau tocou
Hoje falou…

Falou, falou da escravidão, falou,
Falou, falou da opressão, falou,
Falou, lá nos tempos de Bimba, falou,
Falou, hoje se escutou
It spoke, it spoke of slavery, it spoke,
It spoke, it spoke of oppression, it spoke,
It spoke, back in the days of Bimba, it spoke,
It spoke, today we heard

It spoke, it spoke of slavery, it spoke,
It spoke, it spoke of oppression, it spoke,
It spoke, back in the days of Bimba, it spoke,
It spoke, today we heard

The black man who suffered in the slave quarters
He used to work on the overseer’s farm,
And one day he heard a cry
It was Zumbi of Palmares
It was he who liberated
Today it spoke …

It spoke, it spoke of slavery, it spoke,
It spoke, it spoke of oppression, it spoke,
It spoke, back in the days of Bimba, it spoke,
It spoke, today we heard

Berimbau helped the capoeiras
Back in the time, back in the time of oppression
The toque cavalaria was heard
When the police followed, berimbau already warned me
Today it spoke …

It spoke, it spoke of slavery, it spoke,
It spoke, it spoke of oppression, it spoke,
It spoke, back in the days of Bimba, it spoke,
It spoke, today we heard

Manuel was the respected master
Creator of the art of regional,
Today your name will be remembered
THe man capoeira spoke of has not been forgotten
Today it spoke …

It spoke, it spoke of slavery, it spoke,
It spoke, it spoke of oppression, it spoke,
It spoke, back in the days of Bimba, it spoke,
It spoke, today we heard

Stories told of the past
Players who listen to this day
And the songs that take me through the ages
Remembering those moments when the berimbau played
Today it spoke …

It spoke, it spoke of slavery, it spoke,
It spoke, it spoke of oppression, it spoke,
It spoke, back in the days of Bimba, it spoke,
It spoke, today we heard
