Here is a real treat: 1973 television footage of Gal Costa performing Trem Das Onze (The 11 PM Train). There are many videos of Costa on Youtube, but this is definitely one of my favorites. Her performance here is utterly sublime.

English lyrics:

I can’t stay
Not even another minute with you
I am sorry, love
But it can not be

I live in Jaçanã
If I miss this train
That leaves now at 11 PM
Only tomorrow morning

And besides that, woman
There’s another thing
My mother doesn’t sleep
Until I get home
I’m an only child
I have my house to look after
