Melhor ser alegre que ser triste
Alegria a melhor coisa que existe
assim como a luz no coracao
Mas pra fazer um samba com beleza
preciso um bocado de tristeza
Senao nao se faz um samba nao
Fazer samba nao contar piada
E quem faz samba assim nao de nada
O bom samba uma forma de oracao
Porque o samba a tristeza que balanca
E a tristeza tem sempre uma esperanca
De um dia nao ser mais triste nao
Pe um pouco de amor numa cadencia
E vai ver que ningum no mundo vence
A beleza que tem um samba nao
Porque o samba nasceu la na Bahia
E se hoje ele branco na poesia
Ele negro demais no coracao
melhor ser alegre que ser triste
Alegria a melhor coisa que existe
assim como a luz no coracao
Porque o samba nasceu la na Bahia
E se hoje ele branco na poesia
Ele negro demais no coracao
