"Domingo no Parque" as written by and Gilberto Gil Moreira....
O rei da brincadeira (ê, José)
O rei da confusão (ê, João)
Um trabalhava na feira (ê, José)
Outro na construção (ê, João)

A semana passada, no fim da semana
João resolveu não brigar
No domingo de tarde saiu apressado
E não foi pra Ribeira jogar capoeira
Não foi pra lá, pra Ribeira, foi namorar
O José como sempre no fim da semana
Guardou a barraca e sumiu
Foi fazer no domingo um passeio no parque
Lá perto da Boca do Rio
Foi no parque que ele avistou Juliana
Foi que ele viu
Foi que ele viu Juliana na roda com João
Uma rosa e um sorvete na mão
Juliana seu sonho, uma ilusão
Juliana e o amigo João
O espinho da rosa feriu Zé
E o sorvete gelou seu coração

O sorvete e a rosa (ô, José)
A rosa e o sorvete (ô, José)
Foi dançando no peito (ô, José)
Do José brincalhão (ô, José)

O sorvete e a rosa (ô, José)
A rosa e o sorvete (ô, José)
Oi, girando na mente (ô, José)
Do José brincalhão (ô, José)

Juliana girando (oi, girando)
Oi, na roda gigante (oi, girando)
Oi, na roda gigante (oi, girando)
O amigo João (João)
O sorvete é morango (é vermelho)
Oi girando e a rosa (é vermelha)
Oi, girando, girando (é vermelha)
Oi, girando, girando
Olha a faca! (olha a faca!)

Olha o sangue na mão (ê, José)
Juliana no chão (ê, José)
Outro corpo caído (ê, José)
Seu amigo João (ê, José)
Amanhã não tem feira (ê, José)
Não tem mais construção (ê, João)
Não tem mais brincadeira (ê, José)
Não tem mais confusão (ê, João)

    General CommentThis song is by Gilberto Gil, with Os Mutantes serving as a backing band. It's a pretty dark song, here's a very good translation of lyrics that I found.

    Sunday in the Park

    The king of fooling around—eh, José
    The king of confusion—eh, João
    One worked at the market—eh, José
    The other in construction—eh, João

    Last week, on the weekend
    João decided not to fight
    On Sunday afternoon he went out hastily
    And did not go to Ribeira* to play
    Capoeira
    He did not go to Ribeira
    He went out with his girlfriend

    José as always on the weekend
    Closed up his booth and disappeared
    He went to take a walk
    in the park
    There, near Boca do Rio*
    It was in the park that he caught sight of
    Juliana
    That's what he saw

    Juliana on the Ferris wheel with João
    A rose and an ice cream in her hand
    Juliana, his dream, an illusion
    Juliana and his friend João
    The rose's thorn stuck Zé
    And the ice cream froze his heart

    The ice cream and the rose—oh, José
    The rose and the ice cream—oh, José
    Hey, dancing in the breast—oh, José
    Of José the jokester—oh, José

    The ice cream and the rose—oh, José
    The rose and the ice cream—oh, José
    Hey, spinning in the mind—oh, José
    Of José the jokester—oh, José

    Juliana spinning—hey, spinning
    Hey, on the giant wheel—hey, spinning
    Hey, on the giant wheel—hey, spinning
    The friend João—hey, João

    The ice cream is strawberry— it is red
    Hey, spinning, and the rose—it is red
    Hey, spinning, spinning—it is red
    Hey, spinning, spinning—look at
    the knife

    See the blood on the hand—eh, José
    Juliana on the ground—eh, José
    Another body has fallen—eh, José
    His friend João—eh, José

    Tomorrow there will not be a market
    —eh, José
    There is no more construction—eh, João
    There is no more fooling around
    —eh, José
    There is no more confusion—
    eh, João

    *Both are neighborhoods of
    Salvador, Bahia
