(Chico Buarque, 1967)
Tem dias que a gente se sente
Como quem partiu ou morreu
A gente estancou de repente
Ou foi o mundo ento que cresceu
A gente quer ter voz ativa
No nosso destino mandar
Mas eis que chega a roda viva
E carrega o destino pra l
Roda mundo, roda-gigante
Roda moinho, roda pio
O tempo rodou num instante
Nas voltas do meu corao
A gente vai contra a corrente
At no poder resistir
Na volta do barco que sente
O quanto deixou de cumprir
Faz tempo que a gente cultiva
A mais linda roseira que h
Mas eis que chega a roda viva
E carrega a roseira pra l
Roda mundo (etc.)
A roda da saia, a mulata
No quer mais rodar, no senhor
No posso fazer serenata
A roda de samba acabou
A gente toma a iniciativa
Viola na rua, a cantar
Mas eis que chega a roda viva
E carrega a viola pra l
Roda mundo (etc.)
O samba, a viola, a roseira
Um dia a fogueira queimou
Foi tudo iluso passageira
Que a brisa primeira levou
No peito a saudade cativa
Faz fora pro tempo parar
Mas eis que chega a roda viva
E carrega a saudade pra l
Roda mundo (etc.)
