A Barata diz que tem sete saias de filó
É mentira da barata, ela tem é uma só
Ah ra ra, iá ro ró, ela tem é uma só !

A Barata diz que tem um sapato de veludo
É mentira da barata, o pé dela é peludo
Ah ra ra, Iu ru ru, o pé dela é peludo !

A Barata diz que tem um sapato de fivela
É mentira da barata, o sapato é da mãe dela

A Barata diz que tem uma cama de marfim
É mentira da barata, ela tem é de capim
Ah ra ra, rim rim rim, ela tem é de capim !

A Barata diz que tem um anel de formatura
É mentira da barata, ela tem é casca dura
Ah ra ra, iu ru ru, ela tem é casca dura !

A Barata diz que tem o cabelo cacheado
É mentira da barata, ela tem coco raspado
Ah ra ra, ia ro ró, ela tem coco raspado !

The cockroach says she has seven skirts of silk.
It's a lie of the cockroach, she only has one!
Ah ra ra, iá ro ro, she only has one!

The cockroach says she has a velvet shoe.
It's a lie of the cockroach, she has a hairy foot!
Ah ra ra, lu ru ru, she has a hairy foot!

The cockroach says she has a buckled shoe.
It is a lie of the cockroach, the shoe is her mother's!
Ah ra ra, oh ro ro, the shoe is her mother's!

The cockroach says she has a marble bed.
It's a lie of the cockroach, she has one made of grass!
Ah ra ra, rim rim rim, she has one made of grass!

The cockroach says she has a graduation ring.
It is a lie of the cockroach, she has a hard pelt!
Ah ra ra, iu ru ru, she has a hard pelt!

The cockroach says she has curly hair.
It is a lie of the cockroach, she has a bald head!
Ah ra ra, ia ro ro, she has a bald head!
