Na Baixa do Sapateiro is a famous Brazilian song named after a street in Salvador, Bahia, where many cobblers once worked. The song, retitled as ‘Bahia’, gained international fame when it was featured in the Disney film ‘The Three Caballeros’. It is Donald Duck’s birthday (namely Friday the 13th), and he receives three presents from friends in Latin America.

The first present is a film projector, which shows him a documentary about birds. The second present is a book given to Donald by José, which tells of Bahia. After opening the third present, Donald meets Panchito, a native of Mexico and the trio take the name ‘The Three Caballeros’.

Oh Baía, when twilight is deep in the sky, Baiá
Someone that I long to see, keeps haunting my memory
And so the Loneliness deep in my heart calls to you, calls to you!

Oh Baía, I live in the memory of many dreams ago
When the stars were bright and you were mine alone
My love for you cannot die, though the oceans run dry
Or heaven’s call from the sky, now you’re gone!

Baía, can’t you hear my lonely call?
Morena, make my life complete again!
How I pray for the day when I’ll see your smile
And my heart will beat again!

Oh Baía, when twilight is deep in the sky, Baía
Someone that I long to see, keeps haunting my memory
And so the Loneliness deep in my heart calls to you, calls to you!
Oh Baía…

Ô Bahia, iaiá
Bahia que não me sai do pensamento
Faço o meu lamento, oi
Na desesperança, oi
De encontrar nesse mundo
O amor que eu perdi na Bahia
Vou contar
Na Baixa do Sapateiro
Eu encontrei um dia
A Morena mais frajola da Bahia
Pedi um beijo, não deu
Um abraço, sorriu
Pedi a mão, não quis dar
Fugiu
Bahia, terra de felicidade
Morena, ah Morena
Eu ando louco de saudade
Meu Senhor do Bonfim
Arranje outra Morena
Igualzinha prá mim
Ai Bahia, iaiá
Bahia que não me sai do pensamento
Faço o meu lamento, oi
Na desesperança, oi
De encontrar nesse mundo
O amor que eu perdi
