Foi de Luanda que eu vim
Foi de Luanda que eu vim
De Luanda que eu vim
Com meu Berimbau de Luanda eu vim

Foi de Luanda que eu vim
Foi de Luanda que eu vim
De Luanda que eu vim
Com meu Berimbau de Luanda eu vim

Foi de Luanda que eu vim
Trazendo o Axé dos meus Orixás
Trouxe a força de Oxossi guerreiro
E de pai Oxalá

Foi de Luanda que eu vim
Foi de Luanda que eu vim
De Luanda que eu vim
Com meu Berimbau de Luanda eu vim

Foi de Luanda que eu vim
Num barco a vela jogando ao mar
No porão do navio negreiro cheguei pra trabalhar
De Luanda

Foi de Luanda que eu vim
Foi de Luanda que eu vim
De Luanda que eu vim
Com meu Berimbau de Luanda eu vim

It was from Luanda that I came
It was from Luanda that I came
From Luanda I came
With my Berimbau from Luanda I came

It was from Luanda that I came
It was from Luanda that I came
From Luanda I came
With my Berimbau from Luanda I came

It was from Luanda that I came
Bringing the Axé of my Orixás
Brought the strength of Oxossi the warrior
And father Oxalá

It was from Luanda that I came
It was from Luanda that I came
From Luanda I came
With my Berimbau from Luanda I came

It was from Luanda that I came
On a sailing boat playing overboard
In the hold of the slave ship I arrived to work
From Luanda

It was from Luanda that I came
It was from Luanda that I came
From Luanda I came
With my Berimbau from Luanda I came
