You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Medroso de amor (Moreninha)

Language: Portuguese (Portugu√™s)

Moreninha, não sorrias
com meiguice... com ternura
(Não sorrias com meiguice)
Este riso de candura
Não desfolhes, não sorrias
Que eu tenho medo d'amores
Que só trazem desventuras.

Moreninha! Não me fites
Como agora, apaixonada
(Não me fites como agora, moreninha)
Este olhar toda enlevada
Não desprendas, não me fites
Pois assim derramas fogo
Em minh'alma regelada.

Moreninha! (Moreninha,) vai-te embora
Com teus encantos maltratas;
(Moreninha, vai-te embora...)
Eu fui mártir das ingratas
Quando amei... Oh, vai-te embora!
Hoje fujo das mulheres
Pois fui mártir das ingratas.
