Carlos Drummond de Andrade


Square Dance -- English translation of Quadrilha


João loved Teresa who loved Raimundo
who loved Maria who loved Joaquim
who loved Lili
who loved nobody.
João left to the United States,
Teresa to a convent,
Raimundo died in a crash,
Maria became an old maid,
Joaquim killed himself and Lili married J. Fernandes Pinto
who hadn't been in the story.

--------
Quadrilha

João amava Teresa que amava Raimundo
que amava Maria que amava
Joaquim que amava Lili
que não amava ninguém.
João foi para os Estados Unidos,
Teresa para o convento,
Raimundo morreu de desastre,
Maria ficou pra tia,
Joaquim suicidou-se e Lili casou com J. Pinto Fernandes
que não tinha entrado na história

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
