Samba-lele is a lively arrangement of a well-known Brazilian folk song.  It is normally sung in a Roda Infantil (children’s circle, a simple children’s game in which the participants hold hands forming a circle and move around singing.  The text tells the brief story of Samba-lele who, despite being sick with a broken head, still finds time to flirt with a beautiful brunette.
