Source text - English Lady, when you pass me on the street
the air changes color, and I want
to bite your brown shoulder.
The thought of you puts stars
into the phosphorescent sea
and warms the cold meal of my life.
be the harbor to my ship,
the nest to my sharp-beaked bird.
Translation - Portuguese Namorada Brasileira
Moça quando você passa por mim na rua,
O ar muda de cor, e eu quero
Morder seu ombro moreno.
Pensar em você põe estrelas
No mar fosforescente
E aquece a refeição fria da minha vida.
Vem, seja a baía da minha embarcação
O ninho para o meu pássaro de bico afiado.
