“Ai, se eu te pego!” (Brazilian Portuguese: [ˈaj ˈsj‿ew tʃi ˈpɛɡu], Oh, If I Get You!) is a 2008 Brazilian song by Sharon Acioly and Antônio Dyggs, with co-authorship by Aline da Fonseca, Amanda Teixeira, and Karine Assis Vinagre and first interpreted by Os Meninos de Seu Zeh, directed by Dyggs himself.
It was recorded by Brazilian band Cangaia de Jegue and then covered by many other regional Brazilian bands like Garota Safada, Arreio de Ouro, Estakazero, Forró Sacode, and Saia Rodada. In 2011, it was popularized by Brazilian singer Michel Teló, becoming an international hit. Teló also released an English-language version, “Oh, If I Catch You!
The lyrics begin with two cries of “Nossa! Nossa!” short for “nossa senhora” – Our Lady, the Virgin Mary, an equivalent of “Wow!” in Brazilian Portuguese. Then Assim você me mata, “You kill me,” a common exclamation. Then “ai, se eu te pego, ai, ai, se eu te pego.” – “Ooh, if I catch you.”The verse then repeats with “Delícia, delícia” instead of “Nossa, nossa.” The third verse of the song is the only verse with a narrative text: describing a Saturday night, a crowd beginning to dance, and summoning courage to speak to the most beautiful girl. Verses 4 and 5 repeat the simple exclamations of verses 1 and 2.
Antônio Dyggs, who co-wrote the song, realized it could become a national hit in Brazil and offered it for a release by Brazilian singer Michel Teló. The result was a hit in Brazil, Latin America and Europe.

In the United States, the single topped both the Billboard Hot Latin Songs and Latin Pop Songs and peaked at No. 81 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Michel Teló the second Brazilian solo act to have a song on the Billboard Hot 100, after Sérgio Mendes did so five decades ago.
