Play-back



Podes não saber cantar nem sequer assobiar
Com certeza que não vais desafinar
Em play-back, em play-back, em play-back
Só precisas de acertar, não tem nada que enganar
E assim mesmo sem cantar, vais encantar
Em play-back, em play-back, em play-back

Põe o microfone à frente muito disfarçadamente
Vai sorrindo que é p'rá gente lá presente não notar

Em play-back, tu és alguém
Mesmo afónico cantas bem
Em play-back, a fazer play-back, e vivó play-back
Hás-de sempre cantar
Em play-back, respirar p'ra quê?
Quem não sabe também não vê
Em play-back, a fazer play-back, e vivó play-back
Dá p'ra toda uma soirée

Podes não saber cantar nem sequer assobiar
Com certeza que não vais desafinar
Em play-back, em play-back, em play-back
Só precisas de acertar, não tem nada que enganar
E assim mesmo sem cantar, vais encantar
Em play-back, em play-back, em play-back

Abre a boca, fecha a boca
Não te enganes, não te esganes
Vais ter uma apoteose, põe-te em pose p'ra agradar

Em play-back, é que tu és bom
A cantar sem fugir do tom
Em play-back, a fazer play-back, e vivó play-back
Hás-de sempre cantar
Com play-back até pedem bis
"Mas decerto", dirás feliz
Em play-back, a fazer play-back, e vivó play-back
Agradeces e sorris

Podes não saber cantar nem sequer assobiar
Com certeza que não vais desafinar
Em play-back, em play-back, em play-back
Só precisas de acertar, não tem nada que enganar
E assim mesmo sem cantar, vais encantar
Em play-back, em play-back, em play-back

Em play-back, em play-back, em play-back
Em play-back, em play-back, em play-back

Playback



Maybe you don't know how to sing or even how to whistle
But you won't sing out of tune for sure
In playback, in playback, in playback
You just have to get it right, there's nothing to it
And even without singing, you're going to enchant
In playback, in playback, in playback

Put the microphone in front of you, it's very disguisingly
Smile, so the people won't notice it

In playback, you're someone
Even aphonic, you sing in tune
In playback, miming, long live playback
You'll always sing
In playback why bother to breathe?
Those who don't know it, won't see it
In playback, miming, long live playback
It's for a whole evening

Maybe you don't know how to sing or even how to whistle
But you won't sing out of tune for sure
In playback, in playback, in playback
You just have to get it right, there's nothing to it
And even without singing, you're going to enchant
In playback, in playback, in playback

Open your mouth, close your mouth
Don't make mistakes, don't stop breathing
You're going to be worshipped, perform to delight

In playback, you sing in tune
Singing without missing the notes
In playback, miming, long live playback
You'll always sing
With playback, they even ask for an encore
"But of course", you'll say happily
In playback, miming, long live playback
You thank and smile

Maybe you don't know how to sing or even how to whistle
But you won't sing out of tune for sure
In playback, in playback, in playback
You just have to get it right, there's nothing to it
And even without singing, you're going to enchant
In playback, in playback, in playback

In playback, in playback, in playback
In playback, in playback, in playback
