Alala
Cansei de Ser Sexy Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

A la la, a la la
Gimme 3 wishes
I wanna be that dirtyfinger and his six bitches
A la la, a la la
Gimme more 2
I wanna be in that crazy band or meuku
A la la, a la la
Would you be kind
Gimme one little more
And i'll be superfine
A la la, a la la
You're so cool
Can i be your friend?
I'll drive till the end

Cuz you know but you don't wanna
Cuz you want but you can't have it
Cuz you know but you don't wanna
Cuz you want but you can't have it

A la la, a la la
I'm so worried
I bought that posh clothing
But it still looks ugly
A la la, a la la
Am i stoopid?
I'm doing the talking
But i don't get nothing
A la la, a la la
Alguém me avisa
Quando é bom parar
De fazer a íntima
A la la, a la la
You're so cool
Can i be your friend?
I'll drive it till the end

Cuz you know but you don't wanna
Cuz you want but you can't have it




Cuz you know but you don't wanna
Cuz you want but you can't have it

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Cansei de Ser Sexy's Alala resonate with themes of desire, envy, and frustration. From the beginning of the song, the singer expresses their desire for three things: to be like "dirtyfinger" and his six bitches; to be in a crazy band or "meuku"; and to have one more thing to make them "superfine." The repetition of "a la la" gives the impression of someone daydreaming or lost in thought, perhaps longing for a life that they feel is out of reach.


The verse "Cuz you know but you don't wanna, Cuz you want but you can't have it" reinforces this idea of unattainable desires, as the singer acknowledges that they are aware of what they want, but they either can't or won't pursue it. This could be interpreted as a critique of consumer culture, where people are bombarded with images of what they should want and be, but are ultimately unable to achieve those standards.


The latter half of the song turns inward, with the singer questioning their own worth and intelligence. They wonder if they are "stupid" for not getting what they want, and express frustration with their own inability to read social cues ("doing the talking but i don't get nothing"). The outro of the song returns to the idea of wanting to be friends with someone cool and driving until the end, suggesting a desire for connection and belonging.


Overall, the lyrics of Alala capture a sense of restlessness and dissatisfaction with the status quo, but also the recognition that some things may be unattainable or not worth pursuing.

Quem é moderno aí meu?
Quem é cool aí meu?
Eu sou!
Também sou hype!!!

I am very crazy
I am very hype and very fashion
I smoke cigarete and like electro
I am tic tic, and cut cut

My drugs and my drinks
My papi paga tudo pra mim
E no final do mês vou pra Berlim
Para ver o show do Fatboy Slim

I go to the night
Stay very crazy na baladinha
I go to the banheiro e snif coquinha
E depois eu tomo um ecstasisinho

I am very funny
I am very little pequititinha
Eu sou uma garota singelinha
Eu sou um bichinho de matar com pedra

Bichinho de matar com pedra
Eu sou, eu sou bichinho de matar com pedra
Eu sou um bichinho de matar com pedra (3x)
Eu sou um bichinho de matar com pedrinha
Eu sou, eu sou bichinho bem singelinho
Eu sou um bichinhozinho de matar com pedra

Eu sou bichinho bem singelinho
Eu sou, eu sou bichinho de pegar com dedinho
Eu sou mini mini mini littlezinho
Eu sou bichinho de bater com pedrinha

Tique tique tique
A tique li li li li li li li

Most of brazilian teenagers and young adults of the 2000s grew up listening to this song in MTV... how I miss these days

@whyisblue923taken

It seems that MTV has music in every other country that's not the US.

@TheCountOrlok

@@whyisblue923taken Nah, MTV Brasil is dead, too. It's all "reality" tv now.
