Põe no chão que eu quero ver, caboclo
Põe no chão que eu quero ver, sinhá

Põe no chão que eu quero ver, caboclo
Põe no chão que eu quero ver, sinhá


O cabra tá assustado
Tá com medo de apanhar
Tá se escondendo na roda
Mas não vai me escapar

Põe no chão que eu quero ver, caboclo
Põe no chão que eu quero ver, sinhá

Põe no chão que eu quero ver, caboclo
Põe no chão que eu quero ver, sinhá


O caboclo já fez sua jura
Partiu pro jogo de corpo fechado
No pescoço tinha um patuá
E pedia as forças para Oxalá

Põe no chão que eu quero ver, caboclo
Põe no chão que eu quero ver, sinhá

Põe no chão que eu quero ver, caboclo
Põe no chão que eu quero ver, sinhá


Me dê forças pra jogar capoeira
Me dê forças pra tocar o berimbau
O desafio já está lançado
Faca de ponta vai lhe furar

Põe no chão que eu quero ver, caboclo
Põe no chão que eu quero ver, sinhá

Põe no chão que eu quero ver, caboclo
Põe no chão que eu quero ver, sinhá


Eu quero ver
Caboclo

Eu quero ver
Sinhá

Quero aprender
Caboclo

O seu jogar
Sinhá
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, caboclo
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, ma’am

Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, caboclo
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, ma’am

The tough guy is scared
He’s afraid afraid of being beaten
He’s hiding in the roda
But he won’t escape me

Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, caboclo
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, ma’am

Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, caboclo
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, ma’am

The caboclo has already sworn
Went for the game with a closed body
There was a patuá around his neck
And he asked Oxal’a for strength

Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, caboclo
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, ma’am

Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, caboclo
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, ma’am

Give me strength to play capoeira
Give me strength to play the berimbau
The challenge is already launched
Sharp knife will pierce you

Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, caboclo
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, ma’am

Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, caboclo
Put it on the ground ’cause I want to see, ma’am

I wanna see
Caboclo

I wanna see
Ma’am

I want to learn
Caboclo

Your playing
Ma’am
