SOCCER IS
CULTURE

    Among the most devoted soccer fans are Brazilian artists. Some of
    Brazil’s best writers, painters, composers, movie directors and playwrights have also put
    on their green and yellow shirts to celebrate futebol and the World Cup. 
    By Music and Lyrics by Moraes Moreira

    P’ra decidir nossa sorte
    Não apelamos p’ra guerra
    Pela nobreza do esporte
    Unir todo o povo da terra
    Com arte quem parte vai
    Levando o grande trunfo
    Vai, na França em Paris
    Atravessar feliz
    O Arco do Triunfo
    Nesse sentido vai fundo
    Diante do nosso plantel
    Se curvará o mundo
    E até a Torre Eiffel
    Tudo que for preciso
    O drible, o improviso
    O grito da galera
    O gênio de Mané Garrincha e de Pelé
    Agora em outra fera
    O jogo a gente inventa
    Arrebenta seleção
    No fim desses 90
    A gente quer ser
    pentacampeão
    No país do carnaval
    O pessoal acredita
    E grita pra desabafar
    E no país do futebol
    O sol nasceu mais bonito
    Pra ver nosso time jogar
    E o nosso time é assim
    Não tem tempo ruim
    Chova ou faça sol
    Aos olhos de quem viu
    Vitória do Brasil
    Ganhou o futebol

     To decide our luck
    We don’t appeal to wars
    By the sport’s nobility
    To unite all the earth’s people 
    With art who leaves goes
    Taking the big trump
    Go, in France in Paris
    To happily cross
    The Arch of Triumph
    This way it goes deep
    Before our squad
    The world will bow
    And even the Eiffel tour
    All that is needed
    The dribbling, the improvisation
    The scream of the fans
    The genius of Mané Garrincha and Pelé
    Now in another beast
    The game you just invent
    Explode, squad
    At the end of these ’90s
    We want to be champions for the fifth time
    In the country of Carnaval
    Folks believe
    And scream pouring their heart
    And in the country of soccer
    The sun rose prettier
    To see our team play
    And our team is like that
    There is no bad weather
    Rain or shine
    To the eyes of who saw
    Victory of Brazil
    Soccer has won
