Pai é pai mãe é mãe

Simple song but I adore it!
Pai é pai – Dad is dad
mãe é mãe – mum is mum
sou xodó de papai – I’m my dad’s sweetheart
sou xodó de mamãe – I’m my mum’s sweetheart

Tricky to translate ‘xodó’ literally: apple of someone’s eye, pet – think affectionate terms (not pejorative).

Someone you have a soft spot for…
ter xodó por alguém/algo -> to have a soft spot for sb/sth

Mestre Bigodinho and Boca Rica’s version.
