"Oh Sambão"
Sambão Enredo 2003

E     B         E
Oh, Sambão!
Music from Rio de Janeiro,
           A
It's Samba!
Bateria!
Tamborim, e Repenique,
          E
E Ganza!
B            E
Dancing Alas
Feel the Ginga, see the swing a
              A
Million times!
Oh, Sambão.
Californios, Brasileiros,
E            B7
Oh, Sambão!

                                         E
And we're playing the Pandeiro,
                                        B7
As we're dancing down the line.
Moving and Swaying to the Surdo,
                                          E
As it's thumping out the time!
On the streets of Palo Alto,
San Jose, e San Francisco,
                               A
We play for Carnaval.
                               E 
That is why this song's in English,
                               B
So that you can understand that,
                               E
We sing and dance for you!
