Come Together

A very hard song! It doesn't make any sense for me, but yet it's a very good song. Thank you Urban Dictionary, for helping me understand (?) some of this stuff!


Come Together    -     The Beatles 

Here come old flattop he come 
Lá vem o velho corte de cabelo, ele vem 
grooving up slowly
Divertindo-se devagar
He got juju eyeball he want one holy roller
Ele tem olhos que provocam o mal, ele quer um religioso fanático
He got hair down to his knee
Ele tem cabelos até os joelhos
Got to be a joker he just do what he please
Tem que ser um piadista, ele só faz o que quer

He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
Ele não usa graxa nos sapatos, ele tem dedos de quem joga futebol descalço
He got monkey finger he shoot coca-cola
Ele tem dedos de macaco ele toma coca-cola (gíria para cocaína)
He say "I know you, you know me"
Ele diz: "Eu conheço você, você me conhece"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Uma coisa que eu posso dizer é que você tem que ser livre

Come together right now over me
Venham juntos agora mesmo até mim

He bag production he got walrus gumboot
Ele entrega drogas ele tem botas de borracha
He got Ono sideboard he one spinal cracker
Ele tem um aparador usado ele é um quebrador de espinha dorsal
He got feet down below his knee
Ele tem pés abaixo dos joelhos
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Segure-o em sua poltrona você pode sentir sua doença

Come together right now over me
Venham juntos agora mesmo até mim

He roller-coaster he got early warning
Ele anda de montanha russa ele recebe aviso prévio
He got muddy water he one mojo filter
Ele tem água lamacenta, ele é um filtro contra magia
He say "One and one and one is three"
Ele diz "um mais um mais um são três"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Tem que ser bonito porque ele é tão difícil de se ver

Come together right now over me
Venham juntos agora mesmo até mim
