Ele sabe de cor
He knows by heart
Todas as caras
All faces
Todas as pernas que caminham apressadas
All legs that walk hastily
Nada mudou
Nothing has changed
Talvez a moda
Maybe the fashion
Talvez a fivela do sapato seja agora
Maybe the shoe buckle is now
Uma fita de velcro cor-de-rosa
A pink velcro ribbon
Ele sabe de cor
He knows by heart
Estranhos segredos
Strange secrets
Das velhas que vivem a falar pelos cotovelos
Of the old women who keep talking through their elbows
Nada mudou
Nothing has changed
Talvez a moda
Maybe the fashion
Talvez o sapato de pelica seja agora
Maybe the little shoe is now
Uma bota de verniz e pele de cobra
A boot of varnish and snakeskin
E sentado na cadeira gasta
And sitting in the chair worn
De gente e de restos de graxa
Of people and remnants of grease
Imagina-se num teatro inglês
Imagine yourself in an English theatre
A recitar shakespeare em português
Reciting Shakespeare in Portuguese
Com a camisa e gravata de cerimonia
With the ceremonial shirt and tie
E depois da actuação
And after the performance
O olhar de comoção
The look of comotion
Põe um ponto no grande retrato
Puts a dot on the large picture
Um aplauso ensurdecedor
A deafening applause
Faz com que o engraxador
Causes the shoeshine r
Enfeite de lágrimas a gravata de cetim
Tear ornament the satin tie
E sentado na cadeira gasta
And sitting in the chair worn
De gente e de restos de graxa
Of people and remnants of grease
Imagina-se num teatro inglês
Imagine yourself in an English theatre
A recitar shakespeare em português
Reciting Shakespeare in Portuguese
Com a camisa e gravata de cerimonia
With the ceremonial shirt and tie
Acorda então em sobressalto
He then wakes up in a heave
Porque a graxa do sapato
Because shoe grease
Do cliente amargurado chegara ao fim
The bitter customer had come to an end
