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.


AKA "No More Blues"
Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius de Moraes
trans. Mal Adam

Go now please, sad memories
Without her love it cannot be no more
Please tell her, I pray for her, that I can't hurt more
Because I need you back with me
Real life is so lonely without her love
I've had enough of missing all the peace, beauty and love that's left me feeling like the sadness never goes
Will never go
So if you would ever come on home
Be so lovely, would be so crazy
There's not as many fishes swimming in the sea
As all the little kisses kissing if you're back with me
In my arms
There has to be
A million hugs, so tight like this, that cling like this
They're just like this, to hug and kiss
In peace and quiet
So we just might
Forever in love together endlessly
So you can stop all of this life you have got
You're too far away from me
