Las letras de la canción A Little More Blue (1971)

(Caetano Veloso)
One day I had to leave my country,
calm beach and palm tree...
That day I couldn't even cry
And I forgot that outside there would be other men

But today, but today, but today, I don't know why
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then

The day Carmen Miranda died
They put a photograph in the magazine
Her dead mouth with red lipstick smiled
And people cryed, I was about ten
But today, but today, but today, I don't know why
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then

One morning they came around to take to jail
I smiled at them and said - all right
But alone in that same day's nigth I cryed and cryed again

But today, but today, but today, I don't know why
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then

One night I saw a mexican film
These twin brothers tryed to kill each other
But Libertad Lamarque, who was the mother
Suddenly appeared between then
She opened her arms and got two bullets
And died sweetly without a sigh
But tonight, but tonight, but tonight, I don't know why
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then

One day I went down to the underground but I missed the
last train
And now that I'm just looking around
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
I feel a little more blue than then
