by Antônio Tavernard (1908 - 1936)

Tem pena da Nêga (Batuque Amazônico)
Language: Portuguese (Português) 
Minha santa donzela
De roupa amarela
Que encanto tu é!
Te apressa, te achega,
Tem pena da Nêga
Que tanto te qué

I
Batuque mazombo
Paródia de bombo
Retumba retumba-a-a-a
Enquanto a pretada
Luzindo suada
Prepara a macumba-a-a-a

II
E estruge o batuque
A força de muque
Batido a rigor-ô-ô-ô
E tudo se torce
Contorce retorce
-Serpente de horror-ô-ô-ô
