Madredeus – O Tejo lyrics

Lyrics by Pedro Ayres Magalhгes
Music by Josй Peixoto
Descobre-me o rio
Que atravesso tanto
Para nada,
E este encanto,
Prende por um fio,
й a testemunha do que eu sei dizer.
E a cidade,
Chamam-lhe Lisboa,
Mas й sу o rio
Que й verdade,
Sу o rio,
й a casa de бgua,
Casa da cidade em que vim nascer.
Tejo, meu doce Tejo, corres assim,
Corres hб milйnios sem te arrepender,
йs a casa da бgua onde hб poucos anos eu escolhi nascer.
