Original video
Everybody knows that our cities were built to be destroyed
Everybody knows that our cities were built to be destroyed
You get annoyed
You buy a flat
You hide behind the mat
But I know she was born to do everything wrong with all of that
But I know she was born to do everything wrong with all of that

Maria Bethânia, please send me a letter
I wish to know things are getting better
Better, better, Beta-, Beta-, Bethânia
Please send me a letter
I wish to know things are getting better

She has given her soul to the devil but the devil gave his soul to God
She has given her soul to the devil but the devil gave his soul to God
Before the flood
After the blood
Before you can see
She has given her soul to the devil and bought a flat by the sea
She has given her soul to the devil and bought a flat by the sea

Maria Bethânia, please send me a letter
I wish to know things are getting better
Better, better, Beta-, Beta-, Bethânia
Please send me a letter
I wish to know things are getting better

Everybody knows that it's so hard to dig and get to the root
Everybody knows that it's so hard to dig and get to the root
You eat the fruit
You go ahead
You wake up on your bed
But I love her face 'cause it has nothing to do with all I said
But I love her face 'cause it has nothing to do with all I said

Maria Bethânia, please send me a letter
I wish to know things are getting better
Better, better, Beta-, Beta-, Bethânia
Please send me a letter
I wish to know things are getting better
