Cohab City (come here): Cohab City (vem pra cá)

Cohab City (Ancient Portuguese: Complexo Habitacional) is the name of a dialogue by Li'l Grandson of Paula. Most modern scholars agree that it was written mostly during Li'l Grandson's so-called middle period. During more than half of the dialogue, Chambourcy makes guesses at Li'l Grandsons request as to where Danone have come from. These include the names of the Cohab, personified deities (Baby, Ari, Bean, Li'l Claude and Li'l Fab), and many words that describe abstract concepts. The second half of the dialogue is so intense that many believe it to be a separate poem that even have a name: "Vem pra cá". The truth is Li'l Grandson of Paula needed two distinct moments to support his point of view.

I'm arriving at Cohab
To enjoy my crew
hug my friends
and kiss my cinderella

Li'l Grandson!

I'm also arriving!
I won't leave you alone
I'm bringing Baby, Ari, Bean
li'l Claude and li'l Fab

Ask Lino to bring me the Sax
That the party is going late
And let Chambourcy know
That there is plenty Danone

It is going to be nice
Pagode at Cohab in the highest vibe
In front of the dinning
Sambing and making a great carnival

It is going to be nice

Come here
to shake
Come with me in swing, i want to rebrake

Come here
to shake
Come with me in swing, i want to rebrake

When she gets to the place
Everybody wants to touch
Saying 'little girl
I'm in love with you
Your sauter
Is very special
And it leaves everybody
In the highest vibe'

I want to see
I want to see
This crowd
Rebraking for real

I want to see
I want to see
This crowd
Rebraking for real
