Tra li la rá ra tra ri la . . .
A menina es ga niçada, magriça, 
com a saia voe jando por cima dos joelhos em nó,
Vinha meio dansando, 
cantando ao crepusculo escuro.
Batia compasso com a varinha, 
na poeira da calcada.
Tra ri la rá ra tra ri la . . .
De repente, voltouse para anagravelha 
que vinha tropegando a traz,
enorme trouxa de roupa a cabeca: 
"Oué mi da, vó?"  Nââo.
Tra li la rá ra tra ri la . . .
