Sin la letra A

em você nem tristeza teremos... by Rudy A. Girón

Sem você nem tristeza teremos
Pra nos lamentar
Sem você nem morrer de saudade
Nem mesmo chorar
Pois não há chorar

E o amor?
O amor desaparecerá.
E o amor?
Da lembrança ninguém nem se lembrará
E o amor?
Se perder ninguém mais vai no olhar
E o amor?
Palavra vazia ninguém mais namorará

Without the letter “A”

Without you we won’t even have sadness
To lament.
Without you, no longing till death
Or even weeping
For there is no weeping
And love?
Love will disappear.
And love?
No one will remember to remember.
And love?
If it’s lost, no one will be moved to move by a glance.
And love?
Empty word no one will make
Will make love
Will make love
Will make love

(From a children’s stage-play by Elifas Andreato called Sem Você não “A”, in which the letter “A” runs away from the alphabet. -Zé)

This song appears in Tom Ze’s album “The Hips Of Tradition” recorded in 1992.
