Lyrics:

Pabllo Vittar
No meu amor sempre tem dor
Tudo pelo meu prazer

Sevdaliza
Can you remember when the last time was
You felt safe
In the dark
This world was never meant
For a woman's heart
Still you rise
Through it all

When I'm out of breath she's my vitals
When I need to rev she's my ride or die
When I'm out of faith she's my idol
I just killed a man she's my alibi

Rosa, que linda eres (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres tu (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres

Yseult
Tout est nasty,
Que des mélo mélo dans ma tête
Que des mélo mélo dans ma tête
Que des mélo mélo dans ma tête

My baby doo doo
Bisou dans le cou
Sur mon corps tu donneras tout tout
Do u want it, do u want it too,

Ton corps sera mon été
Mmmm
J'ai mis ton coeur de côté

Fini le temps des poètes,
Je les hais comme je les aime,
Quand je tue un homme, elle est mon alibi

Rosa, que linda eres (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres tu (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres

Pabllo Vittar
Muito prazer em conhecer
O causador de todo o teu sofrer
E eu vim de longe só pra te dizer
Tu é o meu mal querer

No meu amor sempre tem dor
Ela é meu álibi

Rosa, que linda eres (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres tu (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres tu
(I just killed a man she's my alibi)

Rosa, que linda eres (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres tu (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres (Alibi)
Rosa, que linda eres tu
