Pescador da barca bela

Lyrics - Portuguese

(Folk tune from Portugal, Lyrics by Almeida Garrett)

Pescador da barca bela,
Onde vais pescar com ela. (repeat)
Que é tão bela, Que é tão bela,
Que é tão bela, oh pescador?

Não vês que a última estrela
No céu nublado se vela? (repeat)
Colhe a vela, Colhe a vela,
Colhe a vela, oh pescador!

Deita o lanço com cautela,
Que a sereia canta bela… (repeat)
Mas cautela, Mas cautela,
Mas cautela, oh pescador!

Não se enrede a rede nela,
Que perdido é remo e vela, (repeat)
Só de vê-la, Só de vê-la,
Só de vê-la, oh pescador.

Pescador da barca bela,
Inda é tempo, foge dela (repeat)
Foge dela, Foge dela,
Foge dela, oh pescador!

English Translation – Fisherman of the beautiful barge

Fisherman of the beautiful barge,
Where you go fishing with her. (repeat)
That is so beautiful, That is so beautiful,
What is so beautiful, oh fisherman?

Don’t you see that the last star
Do you sail in the cloudy sky? (repeat)
Pick the candle, Pick the candle,
Harvest the sail, oh fisherman!

Lay the haul cautiously,
That the mermaid sings beautiful … (repeat)
But caution, But caution,
But beware, oh fisherman!

Do not trap the net in it,
What lost is paddle and sail, (repeat)
Just seeing it, Just seeing it,
Just seeing you, oh fisherman.

Fisherman of the beautiful barge,
It’s time, run away from it (repeat)
Run away from it, Run away from it,
Run away from her, oh fisherman!
