A song from Brazil that I used to sing too my children when they were small

Se essa rua fosse minha

Traditional Song

(Portuguese)

Se essa rua
Se essa rua fosse minha 
Eu mandava
Eu mandava ladrilhar
Com pedrinhas
Com pedrinhas de brilhante
Só pra ver
Só pra ver meu bem passar

Nessa rua
Nessa rua tem um bosque
Que se chama
Que se chama solidão
Dentro dele
Dentro dele mora um anjo
Que roubou
Que roubou meu coração

Se eu roubei
Se eu roubei teu coração
Tu roubaste
Tu roubaste o meu também
Se eu roubei
Se eu roubei teu coração
Foi porque
Só porque te quero bem.

If This Street Were Mine

Traditional Song

(English)

If this street,
If this street were mine
I would order,
I would order it tiled
With pebbles,
With diamond pebbles
Just to see,
Just to see my darling pass by.

On this street,
On this street there’s a forest
That’s called,
That’s called loneliness.
Inside it,
Inside it lives an angel
Who stole,
Who stole my heart.

If I’ve stolen,
If I’ve stolen your heart
You’ve stolen,
You’ve stolen mine too.
If I’ve stolen,
If I’ve stolen your heart
It was because
Just because I love you.
