Lyrics (Portuguese)

Samba Lelê está doente
Está com a cabeça quebrada
Samba Lelê precisava
De umas dezoito lambadas

Samba, samba,
Samba ô Lelê
Pisa na barra da saia

Translation

Sambalele is sick
He (or she) has a broken head
Sambalele needs
Eighteen spankings

Samba [Brazilian rhythm & dance], lele [expression of excitement]
Samba, samba, samba la la
Step on the hem of the skirt

  1. Es una versión muy brillante que utiliza el cuerpo sonoro, es atractiva ayuda a jóvenes a interesarse por el canto y por el canto coral, además les invita a moverse y disfrutar la obra. Gracias, soy una Directora de coro de adultos mayores.
