“Luta é Alegria” lyrics — Homens da Luta (Eurovision 2011, Portugal)

Read the lyrics to “Luta é Alegria” — Homens da Luta’s Eurovision 2011 entry from Portugal. The struggle is the joy, people. The struggle is the joy…

Sometimes you find yourself feeling blue
Sometimes you find yourself feeling wary
Sometimes you find yourself feeling alarmed
Sometimes you find yourself feeling dispair

Night or day
The struggle is joy
And people only go forward
Shouting in the streets

There’s no point in tightening the belt
There’s no point in complaining
There’s no point in frowning
And rage is pointless, it won’t help you

Night or day
The struggle is joy
And people only go forward
Shouting in the streets

(Bridge X2)
Bring on the bread, bring on the cheese, bring on the wine
The old will come, the young will come, the boy will come

(Chorus X2)
Come celebrate this situation
And let us sing against reaction

(Bridge – X2)
Bring on the bread, bring on the cheese, bring on the wine
The old will come, the young will come, the boy will come

Many people advise you to watch out
Many people wish to silence you
Many people want you to feel resentful
Many people want to sell you the air itself

Night or day
The struggle is joy
And people only go forward
Shouting in the streets

(Bridge X2)
Bring on the bread, bring on the cheese, bring on the wine
The old will come, the young will come, the boy will come

(Chorus X4)
Come celebrate this situation
And let us sing against reaction

(Bridge X2)
Bring on the bread, bring on the cheese, bring on the wine
The old will come, the young will come, the boy will come
