Lyrics by Pedro Ayres Magalhaes
Music by Jose Peixoto
Show me the river
That I so often cross
And this enchantment,
Holds by a thread,
And is the witness of what I know how to say.
And the city,
They call it Lisbon
But it is only the river
That is true,
Only the river
Is the house of water,
Home of my city where I came to be.
Tagus, my sweet Tagus, you flow so naturally,
You have flown for a millenium without regrets,
You are the home of water
Where not to many years ago I chose to be born.
