NTA but it's fun that you say it's lovely because the lyrics are super sad lol
The song is full of clever wordplay (so much so that it's not rare at all to see this in brazilian portuguese textbooks and exams), so it's a bit hard to translate it exactly, but the main plot of it is basically about a construction worker that dies by falling of the building they were working on.
The lyrics imply that he was drunk and it's been discussed (irl) if it was suicide or not. One famous verse goes as:
"And he trips in the sky as if he was drunkard
And he floats in the air as if he was a bird
And he ends on the floor like a limp sack
Agonizing in the middle of the sidewalk And he died on the wrong way disturbing/getting in the way of traffic
He's the same writer of this song btw >>155749
He's super famous in Brazil.
Here's another song by him, it's probably my mom's favorite song I think when she dies I won't be able to listen to this without crying for a long time
He also sings this one, but her favorite version is by this female voice quartet.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
