Blim-Blem-Blam
Christmas song by Luiz Claudio and Nazareno de Brito

I

The Christmas bells chime
Ding-dong, ding-dong
My love isnít coming
Iíll be spending Christmas
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Far from my love.

II

Not even one letter
Did she write me.
She mustíve found someone else
And forgotten me
Santa Claus, take pity on me
I have no one
In this lonely world
Iím your child too
When the bells chime
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Bring my love back to me.

"Ding-dong, ding-dong", literal translation by Diane Grosklaus.

Lyrics and music by Paulinho Nogueira.
Recorded on ODEON by the singer Luiz Claudio

I

Young girl
I met one day as a child
Here you are suddenly
Beautiful, a woman now
Young girl
How I could love you now
I rocked you in my arms,
Young girl
I sang you to sleep.

II

I remember the ugly little girl
Standing barefoot, so shy
Today a bit naughty
Keeping a secret in her heart

Young girl
I made you cry many times
I thought it funny when she said:
When I grow up, Iíll marry you
Young girl
How I could love you now
I rocked you in my arms,
Young girl
I sang you to sleep.
