From "Brazilliance"

Everyone Loves Brazil

Brazilliance - Derrik Jordan
Words and music by Derrik Jordan and Marjorie Pivar


This song is a joyful celebration of Brazil and the beautiful people who live there. The lyrics are in English and Portuguese. Sung by Alexandra Colmant and Derrik Jordan. I have an instrumental arrangement of this song for guitar, cello and flute/clarinet.


Everyone Loves Brazil

Soul of the earth

Shining through endless work

Sing and dance under the sun In a life celebration

O coracao

Do Brasil, sangue quente

Festejando, vida dura

Sempre sendo carinhoso


Though you don't know it

And probably never will

Everyone loves Brazil Oh, sweet Brazil, oh


Vamos sonhar

Dum lugar tao lindo com mar

Infinito, ve o povo sambar

Regozijar Gente boa, tudos cores

Familia brasiliera

Carnival drums

Young and old are dancing as one

For a moment all the worries are done

Joy has begun Spreading in a wave of love

And bringing us together
