Read translated version

From the bright, enchanting colours
to the music roaring in my ears

I walk through the Rio Carnival
and discover a thousand cheers

I gaze at the breathtaking costumes
and dance along to the booming music

I watch the blazing fireworks
as they create mind-blowing illusions

I witness the thrilling floats go by
They glow in the moonlight
