The Good - O Bom


On the sadly short-lived Communist days that came from the Cohen Plan, an interesting class system was established in Brazil, where restrictions were placed upon haircuts and car ownership, with different styles denoting different positions within the Party. Higher ranking official were allowed red cars and, oddly enough, to have long fringes in their hair.

Erasmo Carlos was not such a man, but this song shows his dreams of one day achieving greatness among his Comrades. Sadly Getúlio Vargas came along and heroically stopped the revolution by becoming one of our many benevolent dictators.
He is the good, is the good, is the good
He is the good, is the good, is the good

My car is red
I don't use mirror to comb myself
Little boots with no socks
It is only on the sand I know how to work

Hair in the forehead, I am the owner of the party
I belong to the ten more
If you wanna try I know you'll like

When I appear the comment is general
He is the good, is the the best!
Have lots of girls for me is normal
I am the good among the ten more

He is the good, is the good, is the good
He is the good, is the good, is the good
He is the good, is the good, is the good
He is the good, is the good, is the good
