Ta na hora de jogar
Vamos la vadiar

Ta na hora de jogar
Vamos la vadiar


O Berimbau me convido
E nao posso recusar
Eu benzo o meu corpo
E entro para jogar

Ta na hora de jogar
Vamos la vadiar


E quando chega a hora
Para mim e uma alegria
Eu pego no Berimbau
e comeso a canturia

Ta na hora de jogar
Vamos la vadiar


A roda passa no meio
Berimbau falo assim
O jogo termina agora
Capoeira nao tem fim

Ta na hora de jogar
Vamos la vadiar


Pra que vive Capoeira
Quando o Berimbau desarma
e uma tristeza no espirito
Os olhos enchendo d’agua

Ta na hora de jogar
Vamos la vadiar


eu vou eu vou, vou vadiar

eu vou eu vou, vou vadiar

Ta na hora de jogar
Vamos la vadiar

Ta na hora de jogar
Vamos la vadiar


eu vou eu vou, vou vadiar

eu vou eu vou, vou vadiar
It’s time to play
let’s vadiar

It’s time to play
let’s vadiar

The berimbau invites me
And I can’t refuse
I bless my body
and I go in to play

It’s time to play
let’s vadiar

And when the time comes
for me and a joy
I pick up at Berimbau
and eat cantery

It’s time to play
let’s vadiar

the roda passes in the middle
Berimbau I speak like this
The game ends now
Capoeira has no end

It’s time to play
let’s vadiar

What does Capoeira live for?
When Berimbau Disarms
and a sadness in the spirit
the eyes filling with water

It’s time to play
let’s vadiar

i will i will i will vadiar

i will i will i will vadiar

It’s time to play
let’s vadiar

It’s time to play
let’s vadiar

I will i will i will vadiar

I will i will, i will vadiar
