Nêga (Photograph Blues)

This song is by Gilberto Gil and Jorge Ben and appears on the live album Ogum, Xangô (1975).

Nêga
You spent so blissfully
The last few days with me
Nêga
I spent so nicely too
The last few days with you

When I met you, it was so fine
I didn't talk a lot to you
I only mentioned your smooth hair
You made a speech about shampoo
We took many, many, many photographs
Downtown
As we passed through

Nêga
You spent so blissfully
The last few days with me
Nêga
I spent so nicely too
The last few days with you

You've been going just where I've gone
All my people you have seen
I've been doing just what you've done
Now I can dig your cup of mu tea
We let our moments become, become
What they really had to be

Nêga
You spent so blissfully
The last few days with me
Nêga
I spent so nicely too
The last few days with you

Develop our photographs
As simple dreams that will come true
Perhaps they will make you laugh
Or make you sure about we two

Develop, baby, our photographs
Perhaps they will make you sure
Perhaps they will show you nothing
Nothing, but a shade of blue

Gilberto Gil
