lyrics

so all these tourists
coming in favelas
you can ask a question
and we got something to tell you
that when we get done
there will be money all up in here
just like you hole it up when you
add to your career
so you have so much,
no i'm no preaching,
but when we get done,
i guess we'll all be reaching
for the fun we keep away,
from the others
keep at bay, for the fun
so you claim that you have fame
you have cars and aeroplanes,
but do you have a village with
people who are insane
i guess that i have one or
about a thousand plus
and when i get down
yo you're eating this dust
like Lampião, cut off my head and
i'll grow another one
cause i'm coming on down
like a tetrahedron
the order after order,
depois i say a fora
i see carnaval and don't you know
i'm gonna run
out to the street like a maniac
you know i got the rhythm
samba, ijexá, maracatu, when
you get done then i'm
wandering then you look at you
like the palhaço who you found
the palhaço is a clown
falling on down til i got a
parachute
yo you thought it was done
looking for gargoyles
tomorrow
and when we get finished well
you know that there will be no
sorrow, we'll be coming in
favelas bringing it up to the top
you got a mansion, check the
corner there's a bus stop
you still got questions, who's
got any questions, are there
any questions?
it's the cangaceiro bunny
jumping round cuecas when i
drop it
to the ground then i say no
muñecas
i guess we got one more verse
and Negro Leo
but we did not rehearse so we
still have to go
but i thought about it for a little while
maybe a year or so,
sixteen Brazilian dream
now you see how i roll, i got the
castle over there,
i got the pool on the side when
you come on down then you can
take a ride on roller coasters
that we built yes you can find it
by the park and when i'm done
Dollhunter, you will see him in
the forest
sparking like a hunter, any
questions?
