ALECRIM DOURADO Learn Portuguese With Music

Alecrim Dourado – Learn Portuguese With Music

Hello! Today I decided to bring you another traditional Portuguese song, which is called “Alecrim Dourado”. It’s great to be able to learn Portuguese through music. It can be especially good for those who have children and are teaching them Portuguese as well. But it’s great for both kids and adults.

In addition, you can get to know a little more about the Portuguese culture, which is always good!

The song I chose for today is called “Alecrim Dourado”, or “Rosemary” in English, and I learned it from my parents and siblings. This type of song is passed by word of mouth and that’s how it’s taught! I’ll be showing you this beautiful song soon, but before that, I would like to ask you to support my work. To do that, you just have to subscribe to my YouTube channel and leave me a like on this video. Thank you 🙂

So I’m going to play this song on my Ukulele and I’m going to try to sing it at the same time. Once again I want to say that I’m not a professional singer, so I’m sorry in advance for anything. So here it goes:

Alecrim Dourado – Lyrics in Portuguese and English:


Portuguese Lyrics

Alecrim, alecrim aos molhos
por causa de ti 
choram os meus olhos 

Ai meu amor 
quem te disse a ti 
que a flor do monte 
era o alecrim 

Alecrim, alecrim doirado 
que nasce no monte  
sem ser semeado 

Ai meu amor 
quem te disse a ti 
que a flor do monte 
era o alecrim 

English Lyrics

Rosemary, tons of Rosemary
because of you
my eyes cry

Oh my love
who told you
that the flower of the hill
was the rosemary

Rosemary, golden rosemary
that is born on the hill
without being sown

Oh my love
who told you
that the flower of the hill
was the rosemary

Alecrim Dourado – What is this song about?


It actually simply talks about rosemary, which is a plant also used for cooking, for example, and many other things.

Now, I hope you will continue to listen to traditional Portuguese music, as it will help you to hear the language in a more natural way. Furthermore, by learning the songs, you are learning more vocabulary and structures of the Portuguese language!
