about

Orlando and his brother Rui (Dr. Rui Haddad), wrote this song when they were students in Rio de Janeiro in the early 1970s. They realized later the song was about their mother, D. Rosinha

lyrics

Pelos confins da aurora
Mora uma bela senhora
Que se chama, Dona Flor
Dona Flor é tão bacana
E de rosas ela emana
Um suave, e leve odor

Sua casa é um palácio
Sempre aberto aos que chegam
À procura do amor
E os bosques são de um verde
Que quem não vê, não acredita
As árvores todas copadas
São com seus frutos benditas

Pelos confins da aurora
Mora a bela senhora
Que se chama, Dona Flor
Dona Flor é tão querida
E de lírios é vestida
Sorrindo para esta vida

Dona Flor adora a paz
E nas guerras se disfaz
Em fumaça amarela
Vai levar a toda gente
Uma mensagem singela
Pedindo para acabar
Com esta guerra tão má

E quando a paz volta
Dona Flor volta com ela
E de lírios broncos se veste
E vive a vida dela
