When the white man
Arrived here
(He) took my wealth
And (he) brought the death
Killing our people
(And) enslaving our children
White man
What do you want here?

Years (hundreds) ago
(You) started the exploration
Destroying the mountains
(And) polluting the rivers
You will never know
The pain in my soul
But you'll feel the strenght
Through my hands

We are here
(In) name of the England crown
The gold in these mines
Belongs to the London Town

From the beginning
Until today
You're consuming
The gold in these lands
Perforated our hearts
Petrified our lungs
How many men did die in these mines?

One day we'll see
The light of the freedom
We will hoist our flag
And we will sing our hymn
Then many will know
The land of the gold
Nova Lima eternal
Golden land

This is my golden land
Where the bread springs from the earth
Here the air always makes us revive
So we are strong like the metal of this earth

Now, I'll raise my sword
I will fight against you!
How can I go on?
Living and watching
My brothers dying!
