Chico Buarque – Rio 42 lyrics
Se a guerra for declarada
Em pleno domingo de carnaval
Verás que um filho não foge à luta
Brasil, recruta
O teu pessoal

Se a terra anda ameaçada
De se acabar numa explosão de sal
Se aliste, meu camarada
A gente vai salvar o nosso carnaval

Vai ter batalha de bombardino
A colombina na Cruz Vermelha
Vai ter centelha na batucada
Rajada de tamborim
A melindrosa mandando bala
O mestre-sala curvando a Europa
A tropa do general da banda
Dançando o samba em Berlim

Se a guerra for declarada
A rapaziada ganha na moral
Se aliste, meu camarada
A gente vai salvar o nosso carnaval
