Waldemar da Paixão

Mestre de lindas poesias
eh! que grande cantador
nas rodas lá da Liberdade
seu canto a capoeira embalou

Eh! Waldemar da Paixao
Eh! la no Pero Vaz
com seu gunga e vozeiro ioio!
tocava na rampa no cais

Eu canto e peço a Waldemar
la da ilha de Maré
na Bahia de todos os Santos
eu canto de Goiania pedindo axé

Foi grande cantador
nas rodas de capoeira
seu canto o mundo conquistou
sua morte nos trouxo a tristeza

Master of beautiful poems
eh! What a great singer
in the rodas in Liberdade
his singing caught the capoeira

Eh! Waldemar da Paixao
Eh! there in Pero Vaz
with his gunga and great sound!
he played at the hillside of the Cais

I sing and ask Waldemar
there at the island of Maré
in Bahia (of all saints)
I sing of Goiana asking for axé

He was a great singer
in the rodas of capoeira
his singing has conquered the world
his death has brought us sadness

This is a recording of Mestre Suíno:
