Sou eu, sou eu, Sou eu Maculelê sou eu

Sou eu, sou eu, Sou eu Maculelê sou eu

O nós viemos de Mato grosso
tirar acuçena da mata real
tirar sossego de quem me ensinou
A dizer sim ao invés de não senhor
porque um dia livre eu serei
e o povo ajusta as contas com o rei
Sou eu…

Sou eu, sou eu, Sou eu Maculelê sou eu

O nós viemos lá da Bahia
quanto mais tarde quanto mais chovia
E o povo pedia implorava
a princesa nos de alforria
sou eu

Sou eu, sou eu, Sou eu Maculelê sou eu
It's me, it's me, it's me Maculelê it's me

It's me, it's me, it's me Maculelê it's me

We come from Mato Grosso
take the cue from the real forest
take peace from those who taught me
Saying yes instead of no sir
because one day I will be free
and the people settle accounts with the king
It is me…

It's me, it's me, it's me Maculelê it's me

We came from Bahia
the later the more it rained
And the people asked and begged
the princess freed us
it is me

It's me, it's me, it's me Maculelê it's me
