(Chico Buarque, 1977)
Vocк vai gostar
Tф levando uns amigos pra conversar
Eles vгo com uma fome que nem me contem
Eles vгo com uma sede de anteontem
Salta cerveja estupidamente gelada prum batalhгo
E vamos botar бgua no feijгo
Nгo vб se afobar
Nгo tem que pфr a mesa, nem dб lugar
Ponha os pratos no chгo, e o chгo tб posto
E prepare as lingьiзas pro tiragosto
Uca, aзъcar, cumbuca de gelo, limгo
E vamos botar бgua no feijгo
Vocк vai fritar
Um montгo de torresmo pra acompanhar
Arroz branco, farofa e a malagueta
A laranja-bahia ou da seleta
Joga o paio, carne seca, toucinho no caldeirгo
E vamos botar бgua no feijгo
Depois de salgar
Faзa um bom refogado, que й pra engrossar
Aproveite a gordura da frigideira
Pra melhor temperar a couve mineira
Diz que tб dura, pendura a fatura no nosso irmгo
E vamos botar бgua no feijгo
Andrй Velloso - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
