Portuguese
Era um mundo novo, um sonho de poetas
Ir até ao fim, cantar novas vitórias

E erguer orgulhosas bandeiras
Viver aventuras guerreiras
Foram mil epopeias, vidas tão cheias
Foram oceanos de amor

Já fui ao Brasil, Praia e Bissau
Angola, Moçambique, Goa e Macau
Ai, fui até Timor
Já fui um conquistador

Era todo um povo guiado pelos céus
Espalhou-se pelo mundo, seguindo os seus heróis

E levaram a luz da cultura
Semearam laços de ternura
Foram mil epopeias, vidas tão cheias
Foram oceanos de amor

Já fui ao Brasil, Praia e Bissau
Angola, Moçambique, Goa e Macau
Ai, fui até Timor
Já fui um conquistador

Já fui ao Brasil, Praia e Bissau
Angola, Moçambique, Goa e Macau
Ai, fui até Timor
Já fui um conquistador

Foram dias e dias e meses e anos no mar
Percorrendo uma estrada de estrelas a conquistar

Já fui ao Brasil, Praia e Bissau
Angola, Moçambique, Goa e Macau
Ai, fui até Timor
Já fui um conquistador

Já fui ao Brasil, Praia e Bissau
Angola, Moçambique, Goa e Macau
Ai, fui até Timor
Já fui um conquistador

Fui conquistador, fui conquistador, fui conquistador

Translation
It was a new world, a poet’s dream
To go far away, singing new victories

And to raise flags proudly
To live warrior adventures
A thousand epic poems, life is so full
There were oceans of love

I’ve been to Brazil, Praia and Bissau
Angola, Mozambique, Goa and Macau
Oh, I’ve been to Timor
I’ve been a conqueror

A whole nation guided by the skies
Spread around the world, following their heroes

And they brought the light of culture
They made tender seeds grow
A thousand epic poems, life is so full
There were oceans of love

I’ve been to Brazil, Praia and Bissau
Angola, Mozambique, Goa and Macau
Oh, I’ve been to Timor
I’ve been a conqueror

I’ve been to Brazil, Praia and Bissau
Angola, Mozambique, Goa and Macau
Oh, I’ve been to Timor
I’ve been a conqueror

Days after days, months and years on the sea
Following a trail of stars to conquer

I’ve been to Brazil, Praia and Bissau
Angola, Mozambique, Goa and Macau
Oh, I’ve been to Timor
I’ve been a conqueror

I’ve been to Brazil, Praia and Bissau
Angola, Mozambique, Goa and Macau
Oh, I’ve been to Timor
I’ve been a conqueror

I’ve been a conqueror, I’ve been a conqueror, I’ve been a conqueror
