Our translated lyrics this week: Samba Desenredo, by Brazilian band Meia Dúzia de 3 ou 4. Meia dúzia means half a dozen. Interesting name for the band, don’t you think?
This is not a light ballad. It is a samba about the end of the world. Complicado, né? Even if you are not in the end-of-the-world mood, you should check the song out.
