Aquarela do Brasil is a song written by Ary Barroso in 1939. In Disney, it was featured in the final segment of the same name from the 1942 Disney film, Saludos Amigos. It is one of Brazil's most famous songs. The song is entirely sung in Portuguese.

The song is also used in an early trailer for WALL-E; as well as performed in the Spike Milligan episode of The Muppet Show by a Scotsman on bagpipes. It was also hummed by Wilbur in The Rescuers Down Under.


In the segment, the song is sung in two parts: one where an artist draws the landscape of Brazil which ends when the artist draws Donald Duck and José Carioca and one where the artist draws musicians playing samba where Donald dances with the beat of samba after drinking cachaça.


Brasil, meu Brasil brasileiro, (Brazil, my Brazilian Brazil)
Meu mulato inzoneiro, (My cool mulatto)
Vou cantar-te nos meus versos: (I will sing you in my verses)
O Brasil, samba que dá, (Brazil, samba that gives)
Bamboleio, que faz gingar; (Bamboleio [a type of dance], which makes you sway)
O Brasil do meu amor, (The Brazil of my love)
Terra de Nosso Senhor (Land of our Lord)
Brasil!... (Brasil!) (Brazil)
Prá mim!... (Prá mim!...) (For me)

Esse coqueiro que dá coco, (This coconut tree that gives coconut,)
Onde eu amarro a minha rede, (Where I tie my net)
Nas noites claras de luar (On clear moonlit nights)
Brasil!... (Chorus: Brasil!...)
Ô! Estas fontes murmurantes, (Oh, these murmuring fountains)
Onde eu mato a minha sede, (Where I quench my thirst)
E onde a lua vem brincar (And where the moon comes to play)
Ô! Esse Brasil lindo e trigueiro, (Oh, this beautiful and dark Brazil)
É o meu Brasil brasileiro, (It's my Brazilian Brazil)
Terra de samba e pandeiro (Land of samba and pandeiro [a Brazilian instrument similar to the tambourine])
Brasil!... (Brasil!...) Prá mim!... (Prá mim!...)

(instrumental verse then ends when Donald Duck appears in the segment where he meets José Carioca)

(samba verse)

Ô! Esse Brasil lindo e trigueiro,
É o meu Brasil Brasileiro,
Terra de samba e pandeiro
Brasil!... (Brasil!...) Prá mim!... (Prá mim!...)

(cue to end of film)
