Eu vi a luta, eu tava la
Eu vi a luta, eu tava la
Dois guerreiros se pegando dentro do canavial

Eu vi a luta, eu tava la
Eu vi a luta, eu tava la
Dois guerreiros se pegando dentro do canavial


Lutava Maculelê na terra do Mangangá
Um gritava para o outro
Tumba* ê caboclo**

Tumba la é ca

E tumba ê guerreiro

Tumba la é ca

E tumba ê Popo

Tumba la é ca

E não me deixe só

Tumba la é ca

Tumba e caboclo

Tumba la é ca
I saw the fight, I was there
I saw the fight, I was there
Two warriors making out inside the cane field

I saw the fight, I was there
I saw the fight, I was there
Two warriors making out inside the cane field

Maculelê fought in the land of Manganga
One screamed at the other
Tumba is caboclo

Tumba there is here

And Tumba is of the warrior

Tumba there is here

And Tumba is Popo

Tumba there is here

And don't leave me alone

Tumba there is here

Tumba and caboclo

Tumba there is here
