Lyrics: Nasci Maria

Portuguese
English
 

Nasci Maria

Oh mãe o que posso eu ser?
Se o meu caminho está talhado
O meu nome não é Maria
Mas pra Maria, nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher
Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria

Tantas vozes que nos gritam
O que a Mulher tem que ser
Honrada, casada, amada
Mal acaba de nascer
Até quero ser ressolha
Até quero ser honrada
Não me tirem já a vida
Quem me dera ter tringalha

Oh mãe o que posso eu ser?
Nasci Maria, nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria

Ainda posso fazer muito
Porque há muito pra fazer
Tenho mão de tecedeira
E muito nó para desfazer

Oh mãe o que posso eu ser?
Nasci Maria, nasci Mulher
Nasci Maria, nasci Mulher
Nasci Maria, nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

(Oliveirinha da…)

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria

(Oliveirinha da…)

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

Nasci Maria, nasci Maria, nasci Maria
Nasci Mulher

Oh mãe o que posso eu ser?
Se o meu caminho está talhado
O meu nome não é Maria
Mas pra Maria, nаѕci Mulher

I was born Maria

Oh, mother, what can I be?
If my path is carved
My name is not Maria
But for Maria, I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman
I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria

So many voices screaming
What women have to be
Honoured, married, loved
Barely out of the womb
I even want to be ressolha*
I even want to be honoured
Don't take my life away yet
I wish I had a tringalha**

Oh, mother, what can I be?
I was born Maria, I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria

I can still do a lot
Because there is a lot to be done
I have the hands of a weaver
And so many knots to untie

Oh, mother, what can I be?
I was born Maria, I was born a woman
I was born Maria, I was born a woman
I was born Maria, I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

(Oliveirinha da…)***

I was born Maria, I was born Maria

(Oliveirinha da…)***

I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

I was born Maria, I was born Maria, I was born Maria
I was born a woman

Oh, mother, what can I be?
If my path is carved
My name is not Maria
But for Maria, I was born a woman
