"Have You Been to Baía?" (also known as "Have You Been to Bahia?") is a song written by Dorival Caymmi released in 1941. In Disney media, it is featured in the 1944 animated Disney film, The Three Caballeros. The song's tune is based on Caymmi's successful song, "Você Já Foi à Bahia?" - though some of the verses from the original Portuguese language remain untranslated. The use of this song in The Three Caballeros gained international fame, as well as the song being successful since 1941.


After the song "Baía" ends, José Carioca tells Donald Duck to know if he has been to Baía to which he tells him that he has not as the "Have You Been to Baía?" score is heard. Throughout the song, José performs rhythmically in front of him as Donald constantly tells him if he has ever been to Baía to which the song ends abruptly. Afterwards, Donald and José then take the train to Baía, where the "Pandeiro & Flute" score begins.


José: Forgive me, but...
Have you been to Baía, Donald?
Donald: No!
José: No? Well, let's go
If you go to Baía, my friend, you'll never return.

Muita sorte teve,
Muita sorte tem,
Muita sorte terá
Have you been to Baía, Donald?
Donald: Uh-uh!
José: Well, let's go!

They have vatapá,
Donald: What's that?
José: They have caruru,
Donald: Is that so?
José: They have munguzá,
Donald: Munguzá?
José: Do you like to do samba?
Donald: Oh, sure!

José: Nas sacadas dos sobrados
Da velha São Salvador
Há lembranças de donzelas,
Do tempo do Imperador
Tudo, tudo na Baía
Faz a gente querer bem
A Baía tem um jeito,
Que nenhuma terra tem!

José: Have you been to Baía, Donald?
Donald: No!
José: No? Well, let's go
When you go to Baía, my friend, you'll never return!

Muita sorte teve,
Muita sorte tem,
Muita sorte terá

Donald: Have you been to Baía?

(ends abruptly)

(first verse)
Much luck it had
Much luck it has
Much luck it will have

(second verse)
On the balconies of the two-story houses
Of old São Salvador
The memory of the maidens
In the time of the emperor
Everything, everything in Baía
Makes people really want it
Bahía has a way
That no land has

(repeat first verse above)


  • Interestingly, "Você Já Foi à Bahia?" (”Have You Been to Bahia?") serves as the film's Brazilian title of "The Three Caballeros".
