There's a poor - black childCrying - walking on the streetsLooking for water and breadBut he only finds scornWe all see itBut we do nothing
There's a red faced indianBut he isn't painted in redIt's just blood of a wild heartLife traded by gold and treesWe all see itBut we do nothing - "aluquissarrera "
On my tv - i just see the same old news and facesIn rio - another tragedy in the favelaMore people diedWe all see itBut we do nothing
The congress wants new lawsThe president wants more moneyBut when it is election timeThey turn into nice guysWe all see itBut we do nothing
Pre - chorus
Where do you thinkThe rain forest trees are ?Where do you think our stolen gold went to?Do you think this poverty is our fault ?
You all sayThe same thingBut you damageOur land
Will you help ?Forget your moneyAnd doWhat you can
Children made in brazilSent to europeAs cheap merchandiseThe dirty dealers pull the children's gut and sell itIn the black market
The people know everythingBut on sunday there's soccerAnd if you have nothing to eatAnd nowhere to liveNo problem, manWe have carnival
