about

Antonio Carlos Jobim was a great songwriter. These new translations give a more accurate English version of the songs we know and love. With full respect to the original lyricists we hope to give Jobim fans a new enjoyment and appreciation of these timeless classics.

lyrics

AKA "Girl From Ipanema"
Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius de Moraes
Trans. Mal Adam

Watching so much graceful beauty
The girl who swings so sweetly's walking
As she passes she's only wanting the sea
Dark & gold from Ipanema
Poetry cannot describe her
The way she's swaying - the best of swaying I've seen

Why do I have to be so lonely?
How do we all become so sad?
Yes, she's a thing of such beauty
But her beauty's not there to be owned
As she's walking she's so alone
Does she know that as she's walking
The world is smiling oh so graceful
She fills with beauty
Becoming lovely for love
