Sapo Cai - Rio Music from the Motion Picture

"Sapo Cai" is a song sung by Carlinhos Brown during the Sambadrome scene and is heard on a radio in the aviary in Rio. It is also heard in the first official Rio 2 teaser trailer and the official trailer.

It was also the song that played on the radio in the aviary when Sylvio was dancing to samba music.

Lyrics

Já passou meia-hora
Coração fica aqui (Fica aqui)
Tá chegando a hora
Quem não samba, não chora
Não deixe o sapo cair
Tem no chão as estrelas
Pois o sol quer subir (Quer subir)
A poeira se espalha
O meu samba batalha
Quando o povo sorri

Hoje eu sou seu amor
E não tem despedida,
Pois o samba tá quente,
Venha com a gente, minha querida
Mestre-sala ensinou
Que sambar nos dá vida
Pois cantar a natureza
Traz a beleza
Para a avenida

Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí
Balança a cadeira mulata não deixe o sapo cair
Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí
Balança a cadeira mulata não deixe o sapo cair

Hoje eu sou seu amor
E não tem despedida,
Pois o samba tá quente,
Venha com a gente, minha querida
Mestre-sala ensinou
Que sambar nos dá vida
Pois cantar a natureza
Traz a beleza

Samba de Orly 1

Sylvio Dances when Sapo Cai airs on the radio in the aviary


Para a avenida

Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí
Balança a cadeira mulata não deixe o sapo cair
Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí
Balança a cadeira mulata não deixe o sapo cair

Translation

Half an hour just passed,
The heart remains here (remains here).
The time is coming
Those who don't dance samba, don't cry
Don't drop the toad,
There are stars in the floor.
Cause the sun wants to rise (wants to rise).
The dust scatters,
My samba dancing is pounding
When people smile.

Today I'm your love,
And there ain't no farewell,
Cause the samba's hot.
Come with us, my dear.
The Master of the Ceremonies has taught
That dancing samba gives us life,
Because singing nature.
Brings beauty
To the avenue.

Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí.
Shake the chair mulatta, don't drop the toad.
Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí, Piuí.
Shake the chair mulatta, don't drop the toad.

Trivia

  • Sapo Cai means "Toad falls."
  • The song name has a double meaning Sapo Cai means literally "the toad falls," but also sounds similar to "Sapucai" which refers to the Sambadrome Marquês de Sapucaí where the carnival parade takes place.
