Various versions of one of The Beatles best

Because

John Lennon

Aah
Because the world is round
It turns me on
Because the world is round

Aah
Because the wind is high
It blows my mind
Because the wind is high

Aah
Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue
It makes me cry
Because the sky is blue
Aah

Mas Que Nada

Lyrics, translation & history

The Story of “Mas que Nada”

Oariá raiô Obá Obá Obá
Oariá raiô Obá Obá Obá

[An invocation of the orixá Obá]

Mas que Nada
Sai da minha frente
Eu quero passar
Pois o samba está animado
O que eu quero é sambar.

It’s nothing
Get out of my way
I want to pass
Because the samba is exciting
What I want is samba.

Este samba
Que é misto de maracatu
É samba de preto velho
Samba de preto tu.

This samba
Is mixed maracatu
It’s old black samba
Samba in black for you.

Mas que Nada
Um samba como esse tão legal
Você não vai querer
Que eu chegue no final.

It’s nothing
A samba like this, so cool
You will not want
To reach the end.

Oariá raiô Obá Obá Obá
Oariá raiô Obá Obá Obá
