A perfect way to chase away the Monday morning blues. Once obscure, the Brazilian musical group A Banda Mais Bonita da Cidade (or “The Most Beautiful Band in the City”) has been riding a wave of popularity for the past two weeks, ever since their video, guaranteed to put a little smile on your face, went viral on YouTube. Oração (or “Prayer”) is their song; and it has registered some 4.7 million views since May 17.

Thanks to a commenter over at Metafilter, you can now find a quick and dirty translation of the lyrics. (The translation also appears after the jump). Plus we have Portuguese primers in our collection of Free Language Lessons.

And if you’re looking for a parody of the viral video — it was only a matter of time, right? — you can find it here. It’s now clocking in at 1.2 million views…


My love, this is the final prayer
To save your heart
(the) heart is not as simple as you think
in it fits that which does not fit in the pantry/cupboard

Chorus:
It fits my love!
It fits three lifetimes
It fits a dressing table (I totally had to look that word up)
It fits us two

It fits even my love, this is the final prayer
To save your heart
(the) heart is not as simple as you think
in it fits that which does not fit in the pantry/cupboard

Chorus:
It fits my love!
It fits three lifetimes (technically “they fit, 3 lives, inside)
It fits a dressing table (I totally had to look that word up)
It fits us two

Repeat the last verse.

Repeat the chorus.

Dance throughout.
