ASA BRANCA 
YAKIR GILBERTO DANCE 

Quando olhei a terra ardendo
qual fogueira de S?o Jo?o

Eu perguntei a Deus do c?u
porque tamanha judia??o (2X)

Que braseiro, que fornalha,
nenhum p? de planta??o

Por falta d'?gua perdi meu gado,
morreu de sede meu alaz?o (2X)

Int? mesmo a Asa Branca
bateu asas do sert?o

entonce eu disse: "Adeus, Rosinha,
guarda contigo meu cora??o". (2X)

Hoje longe muitas l?guas
nessa triste solid?o espero

a chuva cair de novo pr?
eu voltar pro meu sert?o (2X)

Quando o verde dos teus
olhos se espalhar na planta??o

eu te asseguro, n?o chortes n?o, viu?
que eu voltarei, viu? meu cora??o(2X)

WHITE WING 
 

When I saw the land burning
Like a bonfire on St. John's Day

I asked God in the heavens above
Oh, why such a cruel torment?

What hell-fire, what a furnace!
Not even a single planted tree

I lost my cattle for lack of water
My horse died of thirst

Even the white-wing dove
Flew away from this backland

So I said, farewell Rosy
Keep my heart with you

Today a long way away
In a sad solitude

I wait for rain to fall again
So I can go back to my land

When the green of your eyes
Spreads over this land again

I assure you, don't cry, hear?
That I will return, my dear
