    Default B.E.P. from Spanish to English please !!!!!!!!!!

    i understand the english part of the song,
    but can someone translate this for me ?

    Mas que nada
    Sai da minha frente
    Eu quero passar
    Pois o samba esta animado
    O que eu quero e sambar
    Este samba
    Que e misto de maracatu
    E samba de preto velho
    Samba de preto tu

    No way
    Step out of the way
    I want to pass
    Cause the samba is lively
    And what i really want is sambar
    This samba
    Is a mix of maracatu
    It's a samba of old black
    Samba of blacky black ...

    maracatu is "imported from africa" dance to the drums
    in the last line preto (which means black) is followed by "tu" to get the right number of sylables and rhyme with maracatu. "Tu" means you, but in this case it's just a repetition of the last sylable of "preto" (which is read pretu) and also , on the funny side, tutu is a brazilian dish made wwith the left overs of feijoada (with black beans).

    I'm sorry, three other notes....hihi
    This is not spanish, it's brazilian portuguese! I'm brazilian and could not let this pass by...
    The other, when hearing the remake, i think they say "preto feio" (ugly black) instead of "preto velho".
