Lyrics

Oh berimbau
peda? o de arame peda? o de pau
junto cum caba? a virou berimbau
berimbau sim
berimbau n? o berimbaberimba
berimbau sim
berimbau sim
berimbau naum
berimbaberimba berimbau
Oh berimbau
sacode a poeira madalena
espante a tristeza e cante
eu sou olodum quem t? ?s (2x)
Vem meu amor
e o olodum nessa melodia
Vem meu amor
deixa a fluir essa alegria
Agu? e a sua conciencia negra cor
negra coooor
estipar o mal q nos rodeia
se defender
a arma? musical
cantando reggae
cantando reggae ou cantando jazz cantando blues
eu vo vadiar
eu digo ja chegou olodum (2x)
Oh berimbau
peda? o de arame peda? o de pau
junto cum caba? a virou berimbau
berimbau sim
berimbau n? o berimbaberimba
berimbau sim
berimbau sim
berimbau naum
berimbaberimba berimbau
Oh berimbau
sacode a poeira madalena
espante a tristeza e cante
eu sou olodum quem t? ?s (2x)

Lyrics translation

Oh berimbau
peda? the peda wire? the wood
together cum caba? The turned berimbau
berimbau yes
berimbau n? the berimbaberimba
berimbau yes
berimbau yes
berimbau naum
berimbaberimba berimbau
Oh berimbau
shake the dust Magdalene
surprise the sadness and sing
I am olodum Who t? ?s (2x)
Come my love
and the olodum in that melody
Come my love
let this joy flow
Agu? and your consciousness black color
black coooor
stipulate the evil Q surrounds us
defend yourself
the gun? musical
singing reggae
singing reggae or singing jazz singing blues
I want to roam
I say olodum has arrived (2x)
Oh berimbau
peda? the peda wire? the wood
together cum caba? The turned berimbau
berimbau yes
berimbau n? the berimbaberimba
berimbau yes
berimbau yes
berimbau naum
berimbaberimba berimbau
Oh berimbau
shake the dust Magdalene
surprise the sadness and sing
I am olodum Who t? ?s (2x)
