São Paulo meu Amor Minha Menina

Written By: PAULO DE CARVALHO

SÃO PAULO MEU AMOR, MINHA MENINA

EU VOU CHEGAR AO ANOITECER
VOU DESCER EM CONGONHAS PRA PODER TE VER
VC DE NOITE É DESLUMBRANTE
UM OCEANO DE PONTINHOS BRILHANTES

E SE O TRANSITO ENGARRAFAR
EU LIGO O I-POD PRA RELAXAR
EU SENTI FALTA DA SUA FUMAÇA
PQ SÃO PAULO VC É A MINHA CASA

SÃO PAULO, MORTE E VIDA SEVERINA
PIERROT E COLOMBINA
MEU AMOR, MINHA MENINA
SÃO PAULO, INGLATERRA E ARGENTINA
ISRAEL E PALESTINA
MEU AMOR, MINHA MENINA
SÃO PAULO, MEU AMOR, MINHA MENINA
SÃO PAULO, MEU AMOR, MINHA MENINA

SE TIVER ENCHENTE EU NEM VOU LIGAR
VOU ME INTERNAR NO PRIMEIRO BAR
EU JÁ JOGUEI A GRAVATA FORA
PORQUE EM SÃO PAULO A FESTA NÃO TEM HORA

EM CIMA DO VIADUTO DO CHÁ
TENHO SAUDADES DO BURACO DO ADEMAR
E ME PERGUNTO ONDE ANDARÁ EUGENIA
AQUELA DO VIADUTO SANTA EFIGENIA
