Where can I find the lyrics to that Brazilian song, “Hey, Magdalena”?

I’ve heard it a number of times. It’s in 4/4 time. It’s got drums almost constantly going in the background playing this sort of jungle-type beat. It’s an informal-sounding chorus of people singing the song, and it’s in Portuguese.

I don’t actually mean “Hey, Maccarana.” I’ve heard the song a few times before. I’m not talking about that over-played “Macarena” song which happens to be in Spanish.

For the last time, no I don’t mean “hey macarena”. And the lyrics are in Portuguese, not English. It’s definitely NOT by Frank Zappa.

  • I know what song your are refering to. Its a zamba song. They played this song in the movie,”Dance with me”

    The song is “Magalenha” by Sergio Mendez.

  • For the usual suspects: Elvis Costello: The last lines in ‘Welcome to the Working Week’: Why do you wanna be my friend when I feel like a juggler running out of hands? ‘… And In Every Home,’ probably the silliest orchestration Costello’s ever done, starts “You turn to the sinister when you get the boot” and has the line later “‘He’s in prison, now she’s running with his mates.” It’s a fun contrast between the seedy small-time crook lyrics and the intentionally overblown orchestration thanks to Steve Nieve. Warren Zevon: Run Straight Down – I think it’s off of Transverse City. ‘Play It All Night Long’: “Sweet home Alabama, play that dead man’s song / Turn those speakers up full blast, play it all night long” Also: Run Through the Jungle – CCR Man on the Run – Cowboy Mouth

    Hey!

    Ha!

    Ooh!

    There was a man

    A little ole man

    Who lived in Montreal

    With a wife and a kid

    And a car and a house

    And a teenage daughter

    With a see-thru blouse

    Who loved to grunt and ball-

    And her name was Magdalena

    Magdalena . . .

    The little ole man

    Came home one night

    To his house in Montreal.

    He caught his daughter

    In the blouse by the light

    And he said to himself:

    “She looks all right!”

    And he reached for a tit

    And grabbed it tight

    And threw her up

    Against the wall

    (BLUE CROSS!)

    Magdalena . . .

    My daughter dear,

    Do not be concerned when your

    Canadian daddy comes near.

    I work so hard,

    Don’t you understand,

    Making maple syrup

    For the pancakes of our land.

    Do you have any idea?

    What that can do to a man?

    The little ole man

    With the grubby little hand

    Who lived in Montreal

    Was drooling a bit

    As he reached for her tit

    And he said to himself:

    “This is gonna be it!”

    But the girl turned around

    And said: “Go eat ****!”

    And ran on down the hall.

    Right on, Magdalena!
