SOCCER IS CULTURE

SOCCER IS
CULTURE

Among the most devoted soccer fans are Brazilian artists. Some of
Brazil’s best writers, painters, composers, movie directors and playwrights have also put
on their green and yellow shirts to celebrate futebol and the World Cup. 
By Music and Lyrics by Moraes Moreira

P’ra decidir nossa sorte
Não apelamos p’ra guerra
Pela nobreza do esporte
Unir todo o povo da terra
Com arte quem parte vai
Levando o grande trunfo
Vai, na França em Paris
Atravessar feliz
O Arco do Triunfo
Nesse sentido vai fundo
Diante do nosso plantel
Se curvará o mundo
E até a Torre Eiffel
Tudo que for preciso
O drible, o improviso
O grito da galera
O gênio de Mané Garrincha e de Pelé
Agora em outra fera
O jogo a gente inventa
Arrebenta seleção
No fim desses 90
A gente quer ser
pentacampeão
No país do carnaval
O pessoal acredita
E grita pra desabafar
E no país do futebol
O sol nasceu mais bonito
Pra ver nosso time jogar
E o nosso time é assim
Não tem tempo ruim
Chova ou faça sol
Aos olhos de quem viu
Vitória do Brasil
Ganhou o futebol

 To decide our luck
We don’t appeal to wars
By the sport’s nobility
To unite all the earth’s people 
With art who leaves goes
Taking the big trump
Go, in France in Paris
To happily cross
The Arch of Triumph
This way it goes deep
Before our squad
The world will bow
And even the Eiffel tour
All that is needed
The dribbling, the improvisation
The scream of the fans
The genius of Mané Garrincha and Pelé
Now in another beast
The game you just invent
Explode, squad
At the end of these ’90s
We want to be champions for the fifth time
In the country of Carnaval
Folks believe
And scream pouring their heart
And in the country of soccer
The sun rose prettier
To see our team play
And our team is like that
There is no bad weather
Rain or shine
To the eyes of who saw
Victory of Brazil
Soccer has won
