E melhor ser alegre que ser triste
Alegria e a melhor coisa que existe
E assim como a luz no coracao

Mas pra fazer um samba com beleza
E preciso um bocado de tristeza
Senao nao se faz um samba nao

Fazer samba nao e contar piada
E quem faz samba assim nao e de nada
O bom samba e uma forma de oracao

Porque o samba e a tristeza que balanca
E a tristeza tem sempre uma esperanca
De um dia nao ser mais triste nao

Poe um pouco de amor numa cadencia
E vai ver que ninguem no mundo vence
A beleza que tem um samba nao

Porque o samba nasceu la na Bahia
E se hoje ele e branco na poesia
Ele e negro demais no coracao

Songwriters
DE MELLO MORAES, MARCUS VINICIUS DA CRUZ / POWELL DE AQUINO, BADEN / BAROUH, PIERRE ELIE
