Ivan Lins - Boas Festas (English translation)

English translation

Happy Holidays

The night fell
The bells tolled
And we got
Happy, praying
Hey, Santa
See if you have
Happiness
To give me
 
I thought that everyone
Was a child to Santa Claus
Just like that, and I thought
That happiness
Was some paper game
 
It's been a while since I asked
But Santa Claus didn't come for me
For sure he's died already
Or maybe, happiness
Is not a toy
