By Rodrigo Palhano:

This is a song from a notorious Brazilian writer/singer Chico Buarque.  Some say its lyrics are addressed to the former Brazilian dictator’s daughter (1974).

The catchy phrase says:

“You don´t like me, but your daughter does.”

Hope you enjoy it!

[Editor’s Note: Here’s a serious first-time for the Laptop Sessions: an acoustic cover song music video performed in a language other than English!  It was only a matter of time before the LS blog went bilingual.  For years now, we have featured videos from artists in countries outside America, taking advantage of one of the wonderful uniting properties of the internet.  Rodrigo has contributed to the Guest Sessions before, but there is even more energy in this song than his previous work.  It’s our pleasure to bring it to you, and even if you don’t know all the words (I know I don’t), I’m certain that you’ll enjoy the performance and that catchy chorus line.  I know I did.]
