Animal World - Mundo Animal

A little known fact about Mamonas Assassinas (Killer Castor Beans, already featured on this blog on Turn Turn and Naked in Santos) was their philanthropic work, especially geared towards educating the young generations in topics like sexual education, foreign languages and gender studies. In this poem they explain in a really simplified way the rich world fauna and its reproduction mechanisms. Its adoption by the ministry of education in the official Brazilian curriculum helped a whole generation to learn faster and improve their lives.

Eating armadillos is good.
Too bad it hurts my back.
Because the animal is too short
And that's why I prefer the goats

The goat has breasts
That feed their descendants
In the animal world there is lots of fornication
For example, dogs
Who fucks her own mother, her sister and her aunts
They get stuck at four loving each other
In broad daylight

[chorus]
The animals, have some interesting animals
Just imagine what the elephant's sex is like
And the camels that have the balls on their backs
And the cows that wherever they go
Leave a trail of shit

The doves when they fly
Incredibly, they fly overhead
With their ass pointing at our heads
Then comes the blast of their anal bazooka
There are doves with laser sight
The shot comes out always fatal.

Totally beautiful whales in the ocean
Swimming with grace, fleeing from hunting
Of human men
The man is cuckold and cruel
But the whale that does not horn and is faithful

[chorus 2x]

Emotions - Emoções

We've covered on previous postings the art of Mr. Roberto Carlos, his peculiar preference for women that are 20 years younger than he is, and how some of his songs show how accepting brazilian culture is of smaller penises. By reading all of this, one would think that our man is all about sex, but that's where you're mistaken, oh foreign friend: Roberto Carlos is also about romance and emotions. So much so that his name is one of the synonyms for love, passion and kitsch, if the Brazilian Academy of Letters is to be believed.

When I am here and live this beautiful moment 
Looking at you and the same emotions feeling 
They are many lived, they are moments I have not forgotten 
Details of a life, stories I've told here

Friends I have earned, loneliness I felt departing
And sometimes I let you see me crying smiling 
I know everything the love is capable of giving me
I know I've suffered but I don't stop loving  
If I loved or if I smiled 
The important is that emotions I've lived


But I'm here living this beautiful moment
In front of you and the emotions repeating themselves 
In peace with life and what it brings me 
In the hope that makes me too optimistic 
If I loved or if I smiled   
The important is that emotions I've lived
