Song No. 123 — Madame Fulano de Tal aka Aliança | Cyro Monteiro & Dias da Cruz (1957)

Madame Fulano de Tal aka Aliança was introduced by Nilton Paz in 1957 as B-side to Mad’moiselle Arabel.

Despite being probably Cyro Monteiro’s best known work as a composer, he recorded Madame Fulano de Tal only in 1968 and only as part of a medley on his live collaboration album Mudando de Conversa with Clementina de Jesus, Elton Medeiros, Mauro Duarte, Nora Ney and the Conjunto Rosa de Ouro.

Although written and mostly recorded as Madame Fulano de Tal, the song was recorded as Aliança by Jorge Veiga, Trio Nagô, Elizeth Cardoso and Catulo de Paula.

MADAME FULANO DE TAL

Arranjou uma aliança e agora é • Madame Fulano de Tal • Eu conheço o seu passado de aventura • Já fui vitima da sua traição • E a malvada criatura ainda achou • Um anjo que lhe deu a mão

Conheceu tantos amores por aí • Coração tão leviano eu nuca ví • Desceu tanto pra subir, mas afinal • Agora é, madame fulano de tal
