History and sentiment behind song

A playfully confrontational song accusing a player of being a moleque ("street urchin") deserving of punishment. Moleque (moh-LEH-keh) translates as "street urchin"; homeless street orphan. Hundreds of these children still roam the streets of today's favelas (slums) throughout Brazil. This song warns that calling the singer a moleque is a bad idea. The last person to use the insult was Mestre Besouro a legendary capoeira master. The story states that Besouro had achieved an enchanted state known as "corpo fechado" or "closed body" and no person or weapon could effectively cause him any harm. He was killed only after a jealous boss ordered the fabrication of an equally enchanted knife called "faca de tucum."
