Lyrics (By Google Search)

A noite acabou
O jogo acabou
Para mim aqui
Quando acordar
Já te esqueci
O filme acabou
O drama acabou
Acabou-se a dor
Tu sempre foste
Um mau actor
Fizeste de herói
No papel principal
Mas representaste e mentiste tão mal
Quem perdeu
Foste tu só tu e nunca eu
Afinal, hoje o papel principal é meu e só meu
Quem perdeu
Foste tu só tu e nunca eu
Afinal, hoje o papel principal é meu
O filme acabou
O drama acabou
Acabou-se a dor
Tu sempre foste
Um mau actor
Fizeste de herói
No papel principal
Mas representaste e mentiste tão mal
Quem perdeu
Foste tu só tu e nunca eu
Afinal, hoje o papel principal é meu e só meu
Quem perdeu
Foste tu só tu e nunca eu
Afinal, hoje o papel principal é meu
Quem perdeu
Foste tu só tu e nunca eu
Afinal, hoje o papel principal é meu e só meu
E quem perdeu
Foste tu só tu e nunca eu
Afinal, hoje o papel principal é meu

The night is over
The game is over
For me here
When I wake up
I’ve forgotten you.
The movie is over
The drama is over
No more pain
You’ve always been
A bad actor
You played the hero.
In the leading role
But you acted and you lied so badly
Who lost
It was just you and never me.
After all, today the leading role is mine and mine alone.
Who lost
It was just you and never me.
After all, today the lead role is mine.
The movie is over
The drama is over
No more pain
You’ve always been
A bad actor
You played the hero.
In the leading role
But you acted and you lied so badly
Who lost
It was just you and never me.
After all, today the leading role is mine and mine alone.
Who lost
It was just you and never me.
After all, today the lead role is mine.
Who lost
It was just you and never me.
After all, today the leading role is mine and mine alone.
And who lost
It was just you and never me.
After all, today the lead role is mine.

My Thoughts

I found out about this song when I was preparing my post called Santana – El Farol, and when I was glancing over a Wikipedia article about the music album Supernatural I saw this:

The track “El Farol” was criticised by unauthorized use of melody.

The song takes it structure of “Papel Principal”, a song made by the Portuguese artist Adelaide Ferreira.

Although never confirmed, the rumor of a possible judicial action by the Portuguese singer was never surpassed.[12]

So I looked on YouTube for this song and I found it, and it definitely sounds like the song El Farol was probably based on / inspired by the song Papel Principal.

The end,
