“Oh, if you could see me!
I am a palace, I am the home of a beautiful lady!
I have a peacocks’ path that watches people crossing by!
I have beautiful ceilings in my rooms so the lady can dance!
I was born a monastery, for once upon the time priests,
And with Brazilian gold a rich man bought me.
Maintaining my facade, made me what I am today!”
