O Cravo e a Rosa

Lyrics - Portuguese

(Brazilian folk song)

O cravo brigou com a rosa
Debaixo de uma sacada
O cravo saiu ferido
E a rosa, despedaçada.

O cravo ficou doente
A rosa foi visitar
O cravo teve um desmaio
E a rosa, pos-se a chorar.

English Translation – The Carnation and the Rose

The carnation fought with the rose
under a balcony
The carnation came out injured
And the rose, broken.

The carnation got sick
The rose went to visit
The carnation had a faint
And the rose started to cry.
