Stevie Wonder's, "Bird of Beauty"
The Lyrics:
Tudo bem voce deve descannar a sua mente,
Nao faz mal o qu vai acontecer daqui pra fente.
Vai cantar alegria,
Voce coracao assim tao feliz ja vai cantar carnival.
The third verse was translated into Portuguese by Sergio Mendes so that Stevie Wonder would dedicate the song to the people in Mozambique and Brazil.

Stevie Wonder's, "Ngicuelela - Es Una Historia - I Am Singing "
The Lyrics:
Ngiculela ikusasg
Ngliyacula nao thando
Ngicula ngelinyi langa
Uthando luyobusa
Jikelele kulomblada wethu

Es una historia de manana
Es una historia de amor
Es una historia que amor reinera
Por nuestro mundo
Es una historia de mi corazon
The fisrt verse is in Zulu, the second in Spanish and the third in English. The verses are not translated literally. For example, the first line of the verse in Spanish means "It's a story of tomorrow" whereas the line in the English verse is "I am singing of tomorrow."
