"Fresh Of The Boat" as written by Gerald Eaton, Brian West and Nelly Furtado....
Fresh off the boat X4

I rock these bare feet like no one else can
My hands are dirty I like 'em that way
Shows Who I am

I'm fresh off the boat
Fresh off the boat
Fresh off the boat
Fresh off the boat

The wine tastes good on my sweet lips like sunshine
The plastic on the furniture suits me just fine

I'm fresh off the boat, fresh off the boat, fresh off the boat, fresh off the boat

Querida menina a beira do mar
Querida menina a beira do mar
Apanha um barco branco e vai vai vai
Apanha um barco branco e sai sai sai

Aquela menina a beira do mar
Aquela menina a beira do mar
Aquela menina a beira do mar
Querida menina e vai vai vai

Querida menina a beira do mar
Querida menina a beira do mar
Querida menina a beira do mar
Querida menina a beira do mar
Aquela menina a beira do mar
Querida menina a beira do mar
Querida menina a beira do mar
Beira do mar mar yeah!

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this. Its my favorite of hers. Its about being proud of who you are and being in touch with where you came from.

    The verses in Portuguese are her take on a traditional lullaby. My aunts used to sing it to me when I was a baby. Heehee.

    General CommentMore like:

    "Dear Girl on the edge of the sea
    Picks up a white boat
    And goes, goes, goes,
    Picks up a white boat
    And leaves, leaves, leaves"

    Omitting the repetitious lines. Lyrics are pretty straightforward, and I thought the refrain "fresh off the boat" was pretty funny. Nelly is proud of her Portugeuse heritage.
