I'm moving to Pasargada

Quote:
Bandeira, Manuel (1930) Libertinagem


Pasargada

I’m leaving for Pasargada
There, I am the king’s friend
Have the woman I want
In the bed that I choose
I’m leaving for Pasargada

I am leaving because
Here I am not happy
Life there is adventure
And so very inconsequent, that
A queen of Spain, Joan the Mad
Becomes my relative, through
The daughter in law I never had

How I’ll do calisthenics
Cycle riding
Wild donkey taming
Climb greasy poles
Do some sea bathing!
When feeling tired
I’ll lie by the river bank
Send for a Siren
To retell the old tales
Those spun by Rose
When I was a child
I’m leaving for Pasargada

There, you have everything
Another civilization
With a safe-proof system
For the dangers of conception
Automatic phone booths
Alkaloids for the asking
Good looking harlots
With whom to romance

When, during the night
I am feeling sadder
Sad without hope
Wishing to kill myself
— There I am the king’s friend —
Have the woman I want
In the bed that I choose
I’m leaving for Pasargada

original (Portuguese):

Vou-me embora pra Pasárgada

Lá sou amigo do rei

Lá tenho a mulher que eu quero

Na cama que escolherei



Vou-me embora pra Pasárgada

Vou-me embora pra Pasárgada

Aqui eu não sou feliz

Lá a existência é uma aventura

De tal modo inconseqüente

Que Joana a Louca de Espanha

Rainha e falsa demente

Vem a ser contraparente

Da nora que nunca tive



E como farei ginástica

Andarei de bicicleta

Montarei em burro brabo

Subirei no pau-de-sebo

Tomarei banhos de mar!

E quando estiver cansado

Deito na beira do rio

Mando chamar a mãe-d'água

Pra me contar as histórias

Que no tempo de eu menino

Rosa vinha me contar

Vou-me embora pra Pasárgada



Em Pasárgada tem tudo

É outra civilização

Tem um processo seguro

De impedir a concepção

Tem telefone automático

Tem alcalóide à vontade

Tem prostitutas bonitas

Para a gente namorar



E quando eu estiver mais triste

Mas triste de não ter jeito

Quando de noite me der

Vontade de me matar

— Lá sou amigo do rei —

Terei a mulher que eu quero

Na cama que escolherei

Vou-me embora pra Pasárgada.
