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 "Favela"
Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius de Moraes
Trans. Mal Adam

The hill's no chance
The hill's got nothing left
But you should look more closely

The hill, so poor, wants more
And whenever people say "It's now!" all the city's gonna sing

The hill now says "Give me my go!"
The hill now says "I am on show!"
Make way for the samba drummers - one and two
The hill's no chance, be ready for the dance
All the city's gonna sing

The hill, so poor, wants more
And whenever people say "It's now!" all the city's gonna sing
