ACELERA O PASSO

Amigo acelera o passo do teu fado automatizado
Nao te rendas ao cansaco ou seras ultrapassado
Amigo olha o compasso o teu tempo esta marcado
Nesta danca do diabo nao tropeces no fracasso

No baile da globalizacao
Tens que aumentar a producao
O rendimendo da prazer
Mas so comes a correr
Nao ha horas pro lazer

O ritmo do novo seculo e puxado
Afina bem a velha maquina
Dia apos dia o stress aumenta
Aumenta e aumenta
Ve la se o motor aguenta

Agora nao ha tempo p'ra conversas
Tens que satisfazer a exigencia
A lei do mercado ditador
Que tu serves com ardor
Ou vai tudo para a concurrencia

Ao cair da tarde aumentam as dores
Com a descida na bolsa de valores
Toma um bagaco e um cafe
P'ra te dar forca e fe
Nao te deixes ir abaixo

PICK UP THE PACE

Pick up the pace my friend
Don't give in to fatigue
Or you will be defeated
Buddy, watch your timing
Your tempo has been set
Don't trip over failure
In this frenzy dance

You must increase production
In the quickstep of globalization
The profits give pleasure
But you eat on the run
There's no leisure time

The rhythm of the new century is demanding
Fine tune the old machine
Stress rises day after day
Make sure the motor can take it

Now there's no time for a chat
You must satisfy the demands
The law of a dictating market
That you serve fervently
Or you will lose it all to the competition

By day's end your distress mounts
With the drop of the stock market
Have a stiff drink and coffee
To give you strength and hope
Don't let yourself go down
