The following poem is about this song.

"Mas Que Nada (Poem)"
Oari rai
Ob Ob Ob...
I will sail over this
I am that albatross
Who cares how clumsy I am on land
When I'm coasting above the storm
...Mas que nada
Sai da minha frente
Eu quero passar...
I will sing
I will feel the joy of the song
Even if it means maxing the volume
Feeling the vibrations with my hands
And filling in the gaps with my mind
...Pois o samba est animado
O que eu quero sambar
Este samba...
Escaping my internal world
Flooding it with joy
I will conquer this
I will watch isolation shrivel up
And die
...Que misto de maracatu
samba de preto velho
Samba de preto tu
Mas que nada...
I've found my connection to the world
My independence
...Um samba como esse to legal
Voc no vai querer
Que eu chegue no final...
This song is my independence
My freedom
My joy.
Oari rai
Ob Ob Ob...
