"Anunciação" as written by and Caetano Emmanuel Viana Teles/guimaraes Veloso....
Maria, Maria
Nosso filho está perto
Esta noite eu o vi em sonhos
Me chamando
Antes já o pressentia
Esta noite eu o vi de repente, vagamente
Maria, Maria
Maria tenho medo que você não chegue a tempo
Que ele apareça em meu quarto noturno
Com uma faca na mão
E um sorriso violento nos lábios
É preciso impedir que ele cresça longe de nós
E não nos reconheça
Maria, Maria
Não pense que estou louco
Nosso filho já nasceu
E se não tomarmos conhecimento
Como iremos saber
Que a nossa carne que nos mata
Maria, Maria
Tente mesmo chegando
A cabeleira vermelha
Como incêndio mais belo do que nós
Enquanto nós pensamos
Que ainda jaz
Na caixa de sapato
Não deixe nosso filho
Substituir o teu leite
Pelo leite das feras
Maria, Maria
Não te iludas com pílulas ou outros métodos
Tarde demais para tais providências
Essa noite, Maria, essa noite ele gritou seu nome
Maria, Maria

    General CommentI loved this song before I had any idea what he was saying in Portuguese, but I recently found a translation on lyricstranslate and it was a strange feeling to find out that he's saying this (more or less):

    Maria, Maria
    Our son is close (nearby)
    Tonight I saw him in a dream
    Calling me
    I could notice him before
    Tonight I saw him suddenly, vaguely
    Maria, Maria
    Maria I'm afraid you won't make it in time
    That he appears in my nocturnal room
    With a knife in hand
    And a violent smile on his lips
    It's necessary to stop him from growing away from us
    And don't recognize us
    Maria, Maria
    Don't think I'm crazy
    Our son is already born
    And if we are not aware
    How will we know
    That our own flesh kills us
    Maria, Maria
    (Try even arriving *
    red head of hair
    Like a conflagration more beautiful than us) **
    While we think
    That lies yet
    Inside the shoebox
    Don't let our son
    Replace your milk
    With that of the beasts
    Maria, Maria
    Don't delude yourself with pills or other methods
    Too late for providence ***
    Tonight, Maria, tonight he yelled your name
    Maria, Maria

    And I was even more surprised that it actually happens to touch on one of my deepest fears, that if I had a baby it would be a possessed demon baby!

    So the moral of my story is if there's ever a song you love in a different language that you don't understand, get it translated! It might just be about your fear of demon babies. :)
