Tristeza no tem fim
Felicidade sim

A felicidade como a pluma
Que o vento vai levando pelo ar
Voa to leve, mas tem a vida breve
Precisa que haja vento sem parar

A felicidade do pobre parece
A grande iluso do carnaval
A gente trabalha o ano inteiro
Por um momento de sonho

Pra fazer a fantasia
De rei ou de pirata ou jardineira
Pra tudo se acabar na quarta feira

Tristeza no tem fim
Felicidade sim

A felicidade como a gota
De orvalho numa ptala de flor
Brilha tranquila, depois de leve oscila
E cai como uma lgrima de amor

A minha felicidade est sonhando
Nos olhos da minha namorada
Como esta noite, passando, passando
Em busca da madrugada

Falem baixo, por favor
Pr que ela acorde alegre como o dia
Oferecendo beijos de amor

Tristeza no tem fim
Felicidade sim

    There's no ending to sadness, no happiness. That happiness is like a feather that flows with the wind, that comes and goes briefly, and for that reason precisely should there always be wind.

    The poor's happiness is an illusion, a grand illusion of carnivals. The people work year round for one moment of a dream.

    Look up the translation.

    from English lyrics sung on a recording by Karyn Allison:

    Happiness must end
    But sadness goes on and on
    Happiness is like the dewdrops on a flower
    That sparkle for a moment in the dawn
    Then fall like teardrops
    From the eyes of a young girl
    Who cries to realize her love is gone

    Folks work all year to make one dream come true
    To share a night of joy at Carnavale
    They dress up as clowns and pirates and kings
    And dance the night away
    They’re still dancing at daybreak
    As long as they dance they can pretend
    That happiness and carnavale won’t end
