Gente olha pro céu, gente quer saber o um
Gente é o lugar de se perguntar o um
Das estrelas se perguntarem se tantas são
Cada estrela se espanta à própria explosão
Gente é muito bom, gente deve ser o bom
Tem de se cuidar, de se respeitar o bom
Está certo dizer que estrelas estão no olhar
De alguém que o amor te elegeu pra amar
Marina, Bethânia, Renata, Dolores
Suzana, Leilinha, Dedé
Gente viva brilhando, estrelas na noite

Gente quer comer, gente quer ser feliz
Gente quer respirar ar pelo nariz
Não, meu nego, não traia nunca essa força, não
Essa força que mora em seu coração
Gente lavando roupa, amassando pão
Gente pobre arrancando a vida com a mão
No coração da mata, gente quer prosseguir
Quer durar, quer crescer, gente quer luzir
Rodrigo, Roberto, Caetano
Moreno, Francisco, Gilberto, João
Gente é pra brilhar, não pra morrer de fome

Gente deste planeta do céu de anil
Gente, não entendo, gente, nada nos viu
Gente, espelho de estrelas, reflexo do esplendor
Se as estrelas são tantas, só mesmo amor
Maurício, Lucila, Gildásio
Ivonete, Agripino, Gracinha, Zezé
Gente, espelho da vida, doce mistério

Vida, doce mistério
Vida, doce mistério
Vida, doce mistério
