Lyrics Edit

We tha land of carnival and murder
Bring tha drums and the sounding of thunder
Oh, my people, we got to get stronger
With the spirit of war in Quilombos

Jungle people jungle
Never underestimate our power
Jungle people jungle
Never underestimate our power

Bring our roots, we're under the sun
From in the jungle and from the slums
Our freedom we bring with this song
Never forget where you came from

Jungle people jungle
Never underestimate our power
Jungle people jungle
Never underestimate our power

Bumba, Bumba
Bumba, Bumba
Bumba, Bumba
Bumba, Bumba

Oxossi, open my way
I'm gonna tell the world what you say
I know God making me a way
We pray, we pray, we pray everyday

Jungle people jungle
Never underestimate our power
Jungle people jungle
Never underestimate our power

Bumba, Bumba

Ele e caboclo, ele e flecheiro
Bumba na calunga
E matador de feiticeiro
Bumba na calunga

Ele vai firmar seu ponto
Bumba na calunga
E vai firmar na angola
Bumba na calunga e na fe de Oxala
Bumba na calunga

Bumba, Bumba
Bumba, Bumba
Bumba, Bumba
Bumba, Bumba [lyragraph repeated 4x]
