Tom Zé

Tom Zé (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈtõ ˈzɛ]; born Antônio José Santana Martins, 11 October 1936 in Irará, Bahia, Brazil) is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer who was influential in the Tropicália movement of 1960s Brazil. After the peak of the Tropicália period, Zé went into relative obscurity: it was only in the 1990s, when the musician and label head David Byrne discovered an album recorded by Zé many years earlier, that he returned to performing and releasing new material. more »

I saw a blind man reading the string of a viola
blind against blind in a duel in the hinterland
I saw the blind man tie a cobra in a knot
I saw the blind man imprisoned in the cage of sight
Black bird flying very far away
And the dragonfly discerning the darkness

I saw the moon on the tail of the comet
I saw the bass drum and the windchest pounding
I saw the lightning while the sky was flashing
And the triangle swallowing sparks
I saw the white milky way against the black
I saw day and night come together

I saw the father, I saw the mother, I saw the daughter
I saw the calf give birth to the calf
I saw the replica of the replica of the bible
In the invention of a science singer
I saw God's lamb in an empty egg
I grew cold and I asked you to give me warmth

I saw a blind man reading the string of a viola
blind against blind in a duel in the hinterland
I saw the blind man tie a cobra in a knot
I saw the blind man imprisoned in the cage of sight
the white wing, the white wing, the white song
And the dragonfly discerning the darkness

Ê Tum Ê Tum Ê Tum
Baião de dois
De bim-bom
Baião de um

Arrastâo of Osvaldinho do Acordeon&s; accordion bellows and of all of the accordion players of the Northeast.
