Meu berimbau
Instrumento genial
Meu berimbau
Você é fenomenal

Meu berimbau
Instrumento genial
Meu berimbau
Você é fenomenal


Berimbau
Instrumento que tem som
Toca a paz e toca a guerra
E também chula de amor

Entro na roda
Logo vou me encaminhando
Com a baqueta e arruela
A minha chula eu vou cantando

Meu berimbau
Instrumento genial
Meu berimbau
Você é fenomenal

Meu berimbau
Instrumento genial
Meu berimbau
Você é fenomenal
My berimbau
Brilliant instrument
My berimbau
You are phenomenal

My berimbau
Brilliant instrument
My berimbau
You are phenomenal


Berimbau
Instrument that has sound
Plays peace and plays war
And also chulas of love

I get in the wheel
Soon I am going
With my drumstick and washer
My chula I’m singing

My berimbau
Brilliant instrument
My berimbau
You are phenomenal

My berimbau
Brilliant instrument
My berimbau
You are phenomenal

Note: “Arruela” is indeed a “washer”, a thin, disk-shaped metal plate with a hole in the middle which serves a few different uses. Some people like to use arruelas instead of rocks or dubloons to play berimbau.
