Fado Português
Amália Rodrigues Lyrics


O Fado nasceu um dia
Quando o vento mal bulia
E o céu o mar prolongava
Na amurada dum veleiro
No peito de um marinheiro
Que estando triste cantava
Que estando triste cantava

Ai que lindeza tamanha
Meu chão, meu monte, meu vale
De folhas flores frutas de oiro
Vê se vês terras de Espanha
Areias de Portugal
Olhar ceguinho de choro

Na boca de um marinheiro
Do frágil barco veleiro
Morrendo a canção magoada
Diz o pungir dos desejos
Do lábio a queimar de beijos
Que beija o ar e mais nada
Que beija o ar e mais nada

Mãe adeus, adeus Maria
Guarda bem no teu sentido
Que aqui te faço uma jura
Que ou te levo à sacristia
Ou foi Deus que foi servido
Dar-me no mar sepultura

Ora eis que embora outro dia
Quando o vento nem bulia
E o céu o mar prolongava
À proa de outro veleiro
Velava outro marinheiro
Que estando triste cantava
Que estando triste cantava

Ai que lindeza tamanha
Meu chão, meu monte, meu vale
De folhas flores frutas de oiro
Vê se vês terras de Espanha
Areias de Portugal
Olhar ceguinho de choro

[*TRANSLATION*]

*Fado was born one day,
When the wind barely stirred,
And the skies elongated the sea.
On the bulwark of a sailing ship,
In the chest of a seaman
That, being sorrowful, sang.
That, being sorrowful, sang.

Oh, what immense beauty,
My land, my hill, my valley
Of golden leaves, flowers and fruits
Try to spot lands of Spain,
Sands of Portugal,
Vision blinded by tears.

In the mouth of a seaman
In the fragile sailing ship
Singing the hurtful song
Says the piercing of desires
From the lips burning with kisses
That kiss the air and nothing else,
That kiss the air and nothing else.

Mother, farewell, farewell Maria,
Keep this well in your mind,
That hereby I make you this vow:
Either I will take you to the sacristy,
Or it was God who was served
Giving me my rest at sea

Now, on another given day
When the wind didn't even stir
And the skies elongated the sea.
At the bow of another sailing ship
Another seaman sailed
That, being sorrowful, sang.
That, being sorrowful, sang.

Oh, what immense beauty,
My land, my hill, my valley
Of golden leaves, flowers and fruits
Try to spot lands of Spain,
Sands of Portugal,
Vision blinded by tears.*

I love Fado, can't understand a word of it, but the voice gets all of the emotional depth over, like listening to Mississippi delta blues. . Amazing that this survived under Salazar and is still so popular with the new generation of Fado songstresses like Mariza. Obrigado Portugal!
