This night you are mistaken
i'm a farmer in the city
Dark farm houses against the sky
Every night I must wonder why

Harness on the left nail
Keeps wrinkling, wrinkling
Then higher above me

Can't go by a man from Rio
Can't go by a man from Vigo
Can't go by a man from Ostia

Hey Ninetto

Remember that dream
We talked about it
so many times

Do I hear...
21
21
21

I'll give you...
21
21
21

Do I hear...
21
21
21

I'll give you...
21
21
21

And if I'm not mistaken
We can search from farm to farm
Dark farm houses against our eyes
Every night I must realize

Harness on the left nail
keeps withering, withering
Then higher above me
Is so, is so...

Can't go by a man in this shirt
Can't go by a man in that shirt
Can't go by a man with brain grass
Go by his long long eye gas
And I used to be a citizen

And I never felt the pressure
I knew nothing of the horses
Nothing of the thresher
Paulo, take me with you

It was the journey of a life...

Do I hear...
21
21
21

I'll give you...
21
21
21

Do I hear...
21
21
21

I'll give you...
