Manhã de carnaval
(Carnival morning)

from  'Orfeu Negro'
Luiz Bonfá (music),  Antônio Maria (words)


Manhã, tão bonita manhã
De um dia feliz que chegou
O sol no céu surgiu
E em cada cor brilhou
Voltou o sonho então
Ao coração
Depois deste dia feliz
Não sei se outro dia haverá
É nossa manhã, tão bela afinal
Manhã de carnaval
Canta o meu coração
A alegria voltou, tão feliz
A manhã desse amor

United Kingdom

Morning, such a beautiful morning
Of a happy day that has come
The sun in the sky rose
And every color shone
Then the dream came back
To the heart
After this happy day
I don't know if there will be another day
It's our morning, so beautiful after all
Carnival morning
My heart sings
Joy is back, so happy
The morning of this love[2]
