Peempolio: Pimpolho

Though ostensibly a children's song, Peempolio makes several profound and idealistic points about life and human nature. Art Popular tells of meeting a young prince in the middle of the Carnival. The essence of the poetry is contained in the great and famous lines uttered by a third character to the women: "Cuidado com a cabeça do pimpolho" ("Beware of the Peempolio's Head.").

Peempolio is a very nice guy
It's a shame he cannot see women
In the dance he already asks to lower
Already asks to lower
She wants to stop and he do not

She is dancing and the Peempolio is staring
Beware of the Peempolio

I am Peempolio
I am the king of women
I kiss everyone nonstop
And stop staring at me
Lower slowly
'Cause my breath is ending
I can't speak anymore
Go falling, go falling
Now you can stand

She is dancing and the Peempolio is staring
Beware of the Peempolio's head
