Como nossos pais

Um dos mais destacados integrantes de um grupo de artistas cearenses que, como foi dito, veio tentar a sorte no eixo Rio-São Paulo no início dos anos setenta é o cantor/compositor Belchior (Antônio Carlos Gomes Belchior Fontenele Fernandes). Ex-universitário, que abandonou o curso de medicina para se dedicar à música, Belchior estrearia no Rio em 1971, ganhando o IV Festival Universitário de Música Popular Brasileira com a composição “Na Hora do Almoço”.

Então, depois de um segundo êxito no ano seguinte (a canção “Mucuripe”, com Fagner), esperaria um bom tempo para chegar, com o elepê Alucinação, novamente às paradas de sucesso. Considerado por ele como “um disco de um nordestino na cidade grande”, este elepê lançou além do sucesso “Como Nossos Pais”, também gravado por Elis Regina, pelo menos mais duas composições fortes — “Apenas um Rapaz Latino Americano” e “A Palo Seco” —, o que resultou numa vendagem de trinta mil cópias em um mês.

Uma canção irônica e discursiva, “Como Nossos Pais” critica a acomodação dos jovens diante dos problemas da vida, que Belchior canta de forma agressiva com sua voz veemente: “Minha dor é perceber que apesar de termos feito tudo, tudo o que fizemos / ainda somos os mesmos e vivemos / (...) / ainda somos os mesmos e vivemos como nossos pais...” Esta canção passou incólume, mas o autor teve que modificar outras músicas do disco para obter a aprovação da censura (A Canção no Tempo – Vol. 2 – Jairo Severiano e Zuza Homem de Mello – Editora 34).

Casa no campo




Incluída no excelente elepê que Elis Regina lançou em 1972 — aquele da capa com a cantora posando numa cadeira de vime e cujo repertório ostentava ainda músicas como “Águas de Março”, “Mucuripe” e “Nada Será como Antes” —, “Casa no Campo” acabou se tornando uma espécie de manifesto de intenções de boa parte da juventude da época:

“Eu quero uma casa no campo! (...) / onde eu possa ficar do tamanho da paz / (...) / eu quero carneiros e cabras pastando / (...) / meu filho de cuca legal / (...) / eu quero uma casa no campo / (...) / onde eu possa plantar meus amigos / meus discos e livros / e nada mais...”

O sucesso desta canção surpreendeu até mesmo o seu letrista, Zé Rodrix, que relembra: “Na época, integrando o grupo Som Imaginário, eu viajava de ônibus para Goiânia, numa turnê com Gal Costa, quando avistei pela janela uma plácida paisagem de macelas-do-campo, contrastando com o difícil momento profissional que eu vivia...”

Então, inspirado pela paisagem, ele escreveu, ainda na estrada, a letra de “Casa no Campo” que musicada pelo guitarrista mineiro Tavito concorreu no VI FIC, em 71, que tinha seu júri presidido por Elis Regina. Ao ouvir a composição, a cantora resolveu gravá-la, dando-lhe uma suave interpretação em consonância com o desejo de vida alternativa exposto nos versos, lançando-a num compacto juntamente com outra música — “Nada Será como Antes” — que complementava aqueles ideais. Quando chegou a hora de gravar o elepê (o primeiro que fez com arranjos de César Camargo Mariano), Elis já tinha duas canções para puxar a vendagem .

Posteriormente, “Casa no Campo” internacionalizou-se, em gravações da orquestra de Paul Mauriat e de Orneila Vanoni, cantando em Italiano Há também uma gravação importante de Tavito e coro à cappela, realizada 1979. Já Zé Rodrix, que com Sá e Guarabira é considerado responsável pela criação do chamado rock rural, confessou em entrevista à Folha de S. Paulo que “nunca acreditou muito nesse papo de campo”, considerando-se um sujeito cem por cento urbano (A Canção no Tempo – Vol. 2 – Jairo Severiano e Zuza Homem de Mello – Editora 34).

Upa, neguinho

O ouvido apurado de Elis Regina (foto) para detectar o potencial de uma canção relativamente pobre e transformá-la em sucesso seria posto à prova pela primeira vez em “Upa Neguinho”. A princípio grafada como “Upa Negrinho”, a composição era cantada por Gianfrancesco Guarnieri na peça “Arena Conta Zumbi” estreada no Teatro de Arena de São Paulo em 01/05/65.

Refere-se sua letra a um personagem, menino cafuz, a quem se pede para crescer depressa, na expectativa, talvez, de que um dia possa ajudar a melhorar um mundo onde a liberdade é apenas uma esperança. Em sua simplicidade “Upa Negrinho” era quase uma vinheta, que servia de ligação entre algumas cenas. Mas, ao ouvi-la, Elis bateu pé e só sossegou quando obteve a permissão para gravá-la, quebrando a resistência de Edu Lobo, que tudo fez para que ela desistisse.

Ao apresentá-la em cena, Guarnieri era acompanhado por um trio de flauta (Neném), violão (Carlos Castilho) e percussão (Anunciação), já tendo a canção na ocasião a famosa introdução, com o acorde de quinta diminuta sob a quarta nota, que funcionava como um chamamento para o refrão: “Upa negrinho na estrada / upa pra lá e pra cá / virge que coisa mais linda / upa negrinho começando a andar...”

Mas, não existiam os breques com percussão, que seriam criados por Elis nos versos “capoeira / posso ensinar / ziquizira / posso tirar / valentia / posso emprestar / mas liberdade só posso esperar...” Elis também acentuou com palmas e sem vocal a quarta repetição da frase da introdução, que entoava “pa-ta-ta-trii-trii-triipa-ta-ta...“, fechando sua interpretação com um ardoroso final, que não existia na peça. Pode-se assim dizer que a cantora reinventou a música, ao adaptá-la ao seu próprio estilo. Isso ocorreu com mais duas canções da peça, também incorporadas ao seu repertório: “A Mão Livre do Negro”, que virou “Estatuinha” e “Zambi no Açoite”, transformada em “Zambi”.

Cantado em público por Elis pela primeira vez na noite da gravação ao vivo de “O Fino da Bossa”, pelo então técnico de som Zuza Homem de Mello (para disco Dois na bossa n°2), “Upa Neguinho” foi recebido entusiasticamente pela platéia, O sucesso desse elepê abafou o do disco de estréia de Elis na Philips (Samba eu Canto assim), motivando prognósticos desfavoráveis ao seu futuro como cantora de estúdio que, como se sabe, não se confirmaram.

“Upa Neguinho” tornou-se número obrigatório nos espetáculos de Elis Regina, que o cantou, inclusive, no Midem e no Olympia de Paris, por ocasião de sua primeira turnê internacional. Regravou-o ainda várias vezes, a última das quais no Festival de Montreaux, em 1979. Tão forte tornou-se a integração Elis/”Upa Neguinho” que raramente outros cantores se atrevem a gravá-lo (A Canção no Tempo – Vol. 2 – Jairo Severiano e Zuza Homem de Mello – Editora 34).

Não é o dia de ano novo para celebrar
Não há bombons em forma de coração cobertas de chocolate
Para distribuir
Não é o primeiro dia de primavera
Não se trata de nenhuma canção para cantar
Na verdade hoje é apenas mais um dia comum
Não foi a chuva de abril
Nenhuma flor desabrochando
Não é um casamento no Sábado dentro do mês de Junho
Mas o que é, é algo verdadeiro
Feito com três palavras que devo te dizer
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo
Eu só liguei para dizer o quanto me importo
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo
E eu realmente sinto isso do fundo do meu coração
Não é a temperatura máxima de verão
Não é o calor do mês de julho
Não é a lua cheia para iluminar
uma noite suave de agosto
Não é a brisa do outono
Não são as folhas caindo
Nem mesmo é a hora dos pássaros
voarem para o céu do sul
Não é o sol de libra
Não é o halloween
Não é o agradecimento para
Toda a alegria de natal que você traz
Mas o que é, tão velho e tão novo ao mesmo tempo
É para preencher seu coração como outras três palavras
Jamais conseguiriam
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo
Eu só liguei para dizer o quanto me importo
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo, eu me importo
E eu realmente sinto isso do fundo do meu coração
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo
Eu só liguei para dizer o quanto me importo,
eu me importo
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo
E eu realmente sinto isso do fundo do meu coração
Do meu coração, do meu coração
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo
Eu só liguei para dizer o quanto me importo,
eu me importo
Eu só liguei para dizer que te amo
E eu realmente sinto isso do fundo do meu coração
Do meu coração, meu bem, do meu coração

Que mal conhece o que é o amor

A    a n s i e d a d e   em seu lugar

Em                      B7         
Se amanhã outro amor disser
               B7/5+      Em
Que te reclama, deseja e quer
E7                          Am     Am6
Eu mesmo assim estarei a esperar
                     Em
Que um desengano te faça
  B7/5+         Em
Voltar    a    mim

(Meu amor eu te quero tanto, tanto, tanto
Que nada  neste mundo, nada mais senão
Tua presença me envolve e me acalma
Conhecer-te foi a maior felicidade 
que encontrei nesta vida
A eternidade não vale um só dos teus carinhos
Bendigo aos céus que cruzaram os nossos caminhos)

Loneliness is darkness' first companion
Spend the night alone and faith may bend
Share it all and see how fear starts fading
Chase away the shadows with a friend
Dawn's elusive light is just beginning
Now the day can push away the night
Dreams can make the sun feel much brighter
Hope creates a foothold for the light
It's a long, long lonely night
We can make the morning if we try
It's a long, long lonely night
We can make the morning if we try
Girl, we can make the morning you and I, Oh
Together
It's a long, long lonely night
We can make the morning if we try
It's a long, long lonely night
We can make the morning if we try
It's a long, long lonely night

I can't hear the echo of my footsteps
I can't remember the sound of my own name
Yes and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear her heart softly pounding
If only she was lying by me
Then I'd lie in my bed once again
There's beauty in the silver singing river
There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky
But none of these and nothing else
could match the beauty
That I remember in my true love's eyes
Yes and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear her heart softly pounding
If only she was lying by me
Then I'd lie in my bed once again
If today was not an endless highway
If tonight was not an endless trail
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothing to me at all
Yes and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear her heart softly pounding
If only she was lying by me
Then I'd lie in my bed once again

The Impossible Dream

the impossible (Cmaj7) dream,
(C)To (Fsus2) fight (F) 
the unbeatable (Fsus2) foe. (F)
To (Em) bear with unbearable (F) sorrow,
To (Dm) run where the brave dare not (G7) go.

To (Cmaj7) right (C) the unrightable (Cmaj7) wrong,
(C)To (Fsus2) love (F) pure and chaste from (Fsus2) afar,
(F)To (Em) try when you arms are too (F) weary,
To (Dm) reach the unreachable (Gsus4) star.

(G7)This is my (C) quest, to follow that (Am) star,
No matter how (Em) hopeless no matter how (F) far.
To fight for the (Am) right without question
or (A6) pause.
To be willing to (C) march into hell for
a (Am) heavenly (Bb) cause.
And I (Dm) know if I'll only be (Bb) true
to this glorious (E) quest,
That my (F) heart will be peaceful
and calm (Dm6) when I'm laid to my (Em) rest.

And the (Cmaj7) world (C) will be better

covered with (Fsus2) scars,
(F)Still (Em) strove with his last ounce of (F) courage,
To (C) reach (Dm) the unreachable (C) star.
Versão:
Sonhar o sonho impossível
Combater o inimigo imbatível
Suportar Uma dor insuportável
Ir onde os corajosos
não se atrevem a ir
Corrigir o incorrigível erro

Amar pura e
modestamente ao longe
Tentar quando seus braços
estiverem exaustos
Alcançar a inalcançável estrela

Esta é minha busca
seguir esta estrela
Não importa quão sem esperança
Não importa quão distante

Lutar pelo direito
sem perguntas ou descanso
Estar disposto a marchar
Para o inferno por uma causa divina
E eu sei, se somente for sincero
Para esta gloriosa busca
Que meu coração
descansará em paz e calmamente

quando estiver deitado
para o meu descanso
e o mundo
será melhor para tudo
que um homem desprezado
e coberto de cicatrizes

ainda luta com seu
último resto de coragem
para alcançar
a inalcançável estrela

Versão:
Nestas longas e solitárias tardes
Que estou junto ao telefone
Imagino quanto é que ela vai ligar
Ela disse que me escreveria
Porque sabe que estou só
Mas não ouvi nada até agora.
Estou esperando por uma palavra de amor de Silvia
Você pensou que ela nunca deu atenção ao amor,
minha Silvia
Mas quando estou com ela Senhor,
Eu a perdôo
Porque ela é mais
Que o mundo inteiro para mim
Não há nada como uma palavra
De amor de Silvia
A única em que estou pensando é Silvia
Sinto-me tão triste agora
Eu ficaria tão feliz agora
Se eu tivesse minha Silvia comigo
Aquele velho chorão
Parece sussurrar o nome dela
Por que ela foi embora
As lágrimas em meu travesseiro
Não são difíceis de explicar
Não há mais nada que eu possa dizer
Estou esperando por uma palavraDe amor de Silvia
Você pensou que ela nunca
Deu atenção ao amor, minha Silvia
Mas quando estou com ela Senhor,
Eu a perdôo.
Porque ela é mais
Que o mundo inteiro para mim
Não há nada no mundo como minha Silvia
A única em que estou pensando é Silvia
Sinto-me tão triste agora,
Eu ficaria tão feliz agora
Se eu tivesse minha Silvia comigo.

But before that dawn
Yes before that dawn and before that dawn
Oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo

Separate Ways

Elvis Presley
E                  Emaj7
I see a change is come in to our lives
E7                        A
It's not the same as it used to be
F#m                        B7
And it's not too late to realise our mistake
F#m               F#m7/B  B        A   E
We're just not right   for each o---ther

E                     Emaj7
Love has slipped away and left us only friends
E7                    A
We almost seem like strangers
F#m                                 E
All that's left between us are the memories we shared
F#m7/B                   B         A   E
Of the times we thought we cared for each o---ther

E                                  Emaj7
Now there's nothing left to do but go our separate ways
E7                                  A
And pick up all the pieces left behind us
F#m                  E
And maybe someday, somewhere along the way
F#m7/B   B7             A    E    C#7  B7  F#m7  B7
Another love will find us

Some day when she's older, maybe she will understand
Why her mom and dad are not together
The tears that she will cry when
I have to say goodbye
Will tear at my heart forever

There's nothing left to do but go our separate ways
And pick up all the pieces left behind us
And maybe someday, somewhere along the way
Another love will find us

I never get the chance
I wanna hold her tight all through the night
But all she wants to do is dance

To sway when breezes blow
And birds up in the sky could learn to fly

Tivemos uma briga
Uma discussão de namorados
Eu escrevo dizendo que sinto muito
Mas minha carta continua voltando
Por isso quando eu a coloquei na caixa
Enviei registrada
Bem cedo, na manhã seguinte
Voltou direitinho para mim
Ela escreveu nela:

Desta vez eu vou levá-la
E colocá-la bem na mão dela
E se a carta voltar no dia seguinte
Então entenderei
Porque está escrito nela

Never Ending

Elvis Presley
Tom: Eb


Eb                        Cm
Walk down to the beach at sunset
Fm                     Bb7
Look as far as you can see
Eb                 Eb+     Ab     Abm
You will find that endless ocean
Eb                Bb7              Eb
And that's how my love will always be

(Tacet)    Eb            Eb7
I bring you never ending, never ending
Ab             Abm
never ending, never ending
Eb              Bb7          Eb
never ending, never ending love
Bb7            Eb    (Tacet)
(It goes on and on) never ending love

Look up at the sky at midnight
Gaze up on the starlit view
Just as heaven has no boundaries
Neither does my love for you

I bring you never ending, never ending
never ending, never ending
never ending, never ending love
Never ending love
Never ending love
Never ending love
Never ending love

My Way

Elvis Presley
Intro: C

C    Em
And now the end is near,
Gm         A7
and so I face the final curtain,
Dm         Dm7
My friend, I’ll say it clear,
G7          C
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain


C           C7
I’ve lived a life that’s full,
F     Fm
I traveled each and every highway,
C        G                        F   C
And more, much more than this, I did it my way


C             Em
Regrets, I’ve had a few,
Gm               A7
but then again, too few to mention,
Dm     Dm7
I did what I had to do,
G7               C
and saw it thru without exemption,


C           C7
I planned each chartered course,
F             Fm
each carefull step along the by way
C         G                   F   C
And more,  much more than this, I did it  my way


C              C7
Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew,
F           
when I bit off  more than I could chew,
Dm7   G
But thru it all, when there was dout,
Em              Am
I ate it up, and spit it out
Dm7              G        F   C
I faced it  all, and I stood tall, and did it my way


C         Em
I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried,
Gm                A7
I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
Dm               Dm7
And now,  as tears subside,
G7      C
I find it all so amusing


C               C7     
To think I did all that,
F    Fm
and may I say, “Not in a shy way”
C  G    F   C
Oh no,  oh no,  not me,  I did it my way


C         C7
For what is a man, what has he got,
F                      
if not himself, then he has not
Dm7     G    
To say the things he truly feels,
Em                Am
And not the words of one who kneels
Dm7             G                 F   C
The record shows I took the blows, and did it my way
Dm7             G                F   C
The record shows I took the blows, and did it my way

Money Honey

Elvis Presley
E
You know, the landlord rang my front door bell.
E
I let it ring for a long, long spell.
E
I went to the window,
E
I peeped through the blind,
E (Tacet)
And asked him to tell me what's on his mind.

A
He said, Money, honey, a hah hah.
E
Money, honey.
B7            A                      E
Money, honey, if you want to get along with me.

Well, I screamed and I hollered,
I was so hard-pressed.
I called the woman that I loved the best.
I finally got my baby about half past three,
She said I'd like to know what you want with me.

I said, Money, honey, a hah hah.
Money, honey.
Money, honey, If you want to get along with me.

Well, I said tell me baby, what's wrong with you?
From this day on our romance is thru
I said tell me baby face to face
How could another man, take my place

She said, Money, honey, a hah hah.
Money, honey.
Money, honey, If you want to get along with me.

Well, I've learned my lesson and now I know
The sun may shine and the winds may blow.
The women may come and the women may go,
But before I say I love you so,

I want Money, honey, a hah hah.
Money, honey.
Money, honey, If you want to get along with me.

Maybellene

Intro:  A

A
Maybellene, why can't you be true
D7                     A
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true
E7                     D7                 A
You've started back doin' the things you used to do

A
As I was motivatin' over the hill
A
I saw Maybellene in a Coupe de Ville
A
Cadillac rollin' on the open road
A
Nothin' outruns my V-8 Ford
A
Cadillac doin' 'bout 95
A
Bumper-to-bumper, rollin' side by side

**Chorus

A
Cadillac rolled up ahead of the Ford
A
The Ford got hot, wouldn't do no more
A
It soon got cloudy and it started to rain
A
I tooted my horn for the passing lane
A
Rain was pourin' under my hood
A
I knew that was doin' my motor good

**Chorus
Instrumental:  A  D7  A  E7  D7  A
**Chorus

A
Motor cooled down, the heat went down
A
That's when I heard that highway sound
A
The Cadillac sittin' like a ton of lead
A
110 half a mile ahead
A
The Cadillac looked like it was sittin' still
A
I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill
