Lundú da Marqueza de Santos

Minha flôr idolatrada
Tudo em mim é negro e triste
Vive minh’alma arrasada Ó Titilia
Desde o dia em que partiste
Este castigo tremendo
já minh’alma não resiste, Ah!
Eu vou morrendo, morrendo
Desde o dia em que partiste
Tudo em mim é negro e triste
Vive minh’alma arrasada, Ó Titilia!
Desde o dia em que partiste
Tudo em mim é negro e triste
Este castigo tremendo, tremendo.
Ó titilia
Minha flôr idolatrada
Tudo em mim é negro e triste
Vive minh’alma arrasada Ó Titilia
Desde o dia em que partiste
Este castigo tremendo
já minh’alma não resiste, Ah!
Eu vou morrendo, morrendo
Desde o dia em que partiste.

Lundú for the Marquis of Santos

My idolised flower
Everything inside me is dark and sad
My soul lives destroyed, O Titilia
Since the day you parted
This punishment is so great
That my soul can no longer cope, Ah!
I am dying, dying
Since the day you parted
Everything inside me is dark and sad
My soul lives destroyed, O Titilia
Since the day you parted
Everything inside me is dark and sad
This punishment is so great, so great
O Titilia
My idolised flower
Everything inside me is dark and sad
My soul lives destroyed, O Titilia
Since the day you parted
This punishment is so great
That my soul can no longer cope, Ah!
I am dying, dying
Since the day you parted.
