Music from Rio de Janeiro,
Tamborim, e Repenique,
Feel the Ginga, see the swing a
And we're playing the Pandeiro,
As we're dancing down the line.
Moving and Swaying to the Surdo,
As it's thumping out the time!
On the streets of Palo Alto,
San Jose, e San Francisco,
We play for Carnaval.
That is why this song's in English,
So that you can understand that,
We sing and dance for you!
