A Hora é Essa – Capoeira Song, Lyrics & English Translation

A hora é essa
A hora é essa
Berimbau tocou na Capoeira
Berimbau tocou eu vou jogar
It is time
It is time
Berimbau played in the Capoeira
Berimbau played, I’m going to play

The time has come!

A hora é essa literally means “The hour is that”.

You often can’t translate from Portuguese word for word. In English we’d probably say:

It is time / The time has come / The time is now
