ERETZ TROPIT YAFAH 

Yesh li eretz tropit yafah,
shehashemesh lit'fah,
yesh li yam le'olam, kol reg'a.
Bechol shanah(kol shanah)
yesh carnaval (yesh carnaval)
yesh gitarah dei tovah
ve'ahavah shesh'mah
im lo sham'ata, Tereza.

Ulai be'etzem
ani bichlal rak helech misken (misken)
aval etzli babayit
ani ha"boss", ani hachok,
ani hamelech - ken, ken,
vehachultzah sheli hi degel
ahavah vecarnaval vekaduregel.

A BEAUTIFUL TROPICAL COUNTRY 

I have a beautiful tropical country,
which the sun touched,
I have an everlasting sea, every moment.
Every year
there's a carnival.
I've got a pretty good guitar
and a love whose name,
if you haven't heard, is Theresa.

Actually, maybe
I'm just a poor wanderer.
but at home
I'm the boss, I'm the law,
I'm the king! Yes yes
and my shirt is a flag
of love and carnivals and soccer.

PA?S TROPICAL

Moro num pa?s tropical
aben?oado por Deus
e bonito por natureza.

Em fevereiro, em fevereiro
tem Carnaval, tem Carnaval
Tenho um fusca e um viol?o
sou Flamengo e tenho uma negra chamada Tereza.

Sambaby, sambaby
sou um menino de mentalidade mediana
mas assim mesmo feliz da vida
pois n?o devo nada a ningu?m
Pois sou feliz, muito feliz comigo mesmo.

Moro ...

Sambaby, sambaby
posso n?o ser um band leader, pois ?
mas l? em casa todos meus camaradas
me respeitam, pois ?.
