[Chorus]
I told my ma, about the town I love so well
I told my ma, about the town I love
My time will come, raising up my family
I told my ma, about the town I love
I? m leaving for an island, way down in the south
where the roads are curved and dusty with no names
The people? s so inviting, they? re smiling everywhere
With a tempo I can share
[Chorus]
I'd like to get together, where there's samba in the streets
in a tropical favela to the beats
in Santa Catarina, a hot summer night
are you ready, to ignite?
[Chorus]
I said
Oh oh hungry eyes, hungry eyes
My apprise, all for you
Oh, hungry eyes
Until the morning? s arise
[Chorus x2]
