When you go, tell Rosinha
That if she wants to get married, she can marry
If she wants to wait for me, to wait for me
And if she waits for me, I’ll marry her

Oh Rosinha!
Our marriage is next year

When you go, tell Rosinha
To go to Somada* and buy a matrimonial cerificate
And to go to the church and set a wedding date

Our marriage will be next year
When you go, tell that girl
That it’s me, Jorge, sending this message:
“Rosinha, I love you, my sweetheart,
If you wait for me I’ll marry you.”
