Formosa Portuguese Lyrics

Ó camponesa formosa
de olhos gentis de matar
vem clarear me a tristeza
vem clarear me a tristeza
com a luz do teu olhar (2x)

Mostra-me o trilho florido
que ao teu afeto conduz
dá-me o teu abraço a morada
dá-me o teu abraço a morada
sou um ceguinho sem luz (2x)

Tu que descalça e risonha
percorres montes e vales
deixa que eu siga os teus passos
deixa que eu siga os teus passos
deixa que esqueça os meus males (2x)

Leva-me assim pela mão
lá p’los romances da serra
tira-me tudo a cidade
tira-me tudo a cidade
que me entristece a terra (2x)

Quero ser para ti
como Jacob a Raquel
quero morrer a teus pés
quero morrer a teus pés
como o teu cão mais fiél

Mostra-me o trilho florido
que ao teu afeto conduz
dá-me o teu abraço a morada
dá-me o teu abraço a morada
sou um ceguinho sem luz (2x)

Formosa English Lyrics

O beautiful peasant girl
with gentle killing eyes
come to brighten my sorrow
come to brighten my sorrow
with the light of your eyes

Show me the flowery path
that leads to your love
your hug is my home
your hug is my home
I am a blind man without light

You, barefoot and smiling,
traversing hills and valleys
let me follow in your footsteps
let me follow in your footsteps
let me forget my ills

Take me by your hand
to the tranquility of the mountains
the city takes me all
the city takes me all
saddening the earth20

I want to be for you
like Jacob for Rachel
I want to die at your feet
I want to die at your feet
as your most faithful dog
