Lyrics of the song Nine out of ten (1972)

(Caetano Veloso)
I walk down Portobello road to the sound of reggae
I知 alive
The age of gold, yes the age of old
The age of gold
The age of music is past
I hear them talk as I walk yes I hear them talk
I hear they say
"Expect the final blast"
I walk down Portobello road to the sound of reggae
I知 alive

I知 alive, vivo muito vivo feel the sound of music
Banging in my belly
Know that one day I must die
I知 alive
And I know that one day I must die
I知 alive
Yes I know that one day I must die

I知 alive vivo muito vivo
In the eletric cinema or on the telly
Nine out of ten movie stars make me cry
I知 alive
And nine out of ten movie stars make me cry
I知 alive
