The Court of Rio de Janeiro evaluated as racist the lyrics Look at her hair, authored by Rep. Tiririca. The decision condemns the Sony label, which owns the copyright of music, to pay compensation of 1.2 million dollars. The lawsuit was filed by ten non-governmental organizations fighting against racism.

The authorities claimed that portions of the song are offensive to blacks. In one passage, the song says, “See see see see see her hair / looks good-Bril, Aria pan / Sounds good-Bril, Aria pot / I have sent it to wash / But she insisted, and would not listen to me / This denies stinks, stinks chipping ”

The Lyrics

Veja veja veja veja veja os cabelos dela (4x)
(Look look look look look at her hair (4x)

Parece bom-bril*, de ariá panela

(It looks like a scouring pad for pots and pans)

Parece bom-bril, de ariá panela
(It looks like a scouring pad for pots and pans)

Quando ela passa, me chama atenção
(When she goes by, she catches my attention)

Mas os seus cabelos, não tem jeito não
(But her hair just isn’t right)

A sua catinga quase me desmaiou
(Her stench almost made me faint)

Olha eu não aguento, é grande o seu fedor
(Look, I can’t take it, her smell is so bad)

Veja veja veja veja veja os cabelos dela
(Look look look look look at her hair)

Parece bom-bril, de ariá panela (2x)
(It looks like a scouring pad for pots and pans) (2x)

Eu já mandei, ela se lavar
(I told her to take a bath)

Mas ela teimo, e não quis me escutar
(But she’s stubborn and doesn’t listen to me)

Essa nega fede, fede de lascar
(This black woman stinks, she stinks horribly)

Bicha fedorenta, fede mais que gambá
(Stinking beast, smells worse than a skunk)
