Mário Raul de Andrade (1893-1945)
Tralilarara trarila trarila.
A very skinny girl with a high pitched voice
whose skirt was floating high above her knobbly knees
was coming along, half dancing, half singing in the late evening.
She was beating time with a stick in the dust on the path.
Suddenly, she turned round to face the old black woman who was stumbling
along behind her carrying an enormous bundle of clothes on her head:
‘Will you let me carry it, grandma?’ No.
