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 "How Insensitive"
Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicus de Moraes
Trans. Mal Adam

My foolish ways, once more in love
No care at all from this heart of mine
Now so gentle and true you filled my heart
Only now makes me cry with pain
Why so cruel and weak am I to blame again for such a heartache
Now, my foolish heart, I've never loved
Does my heart deserve another?

Go, my foolish heart, you know it's true
Only love will speak sincerely
Who will ride the wind will ride a storm
Such a fool will blame the weather
Go, my dearest heart
Let love forgive and lovers be together
Go, be sorry now, and ask your love
For a love forgives forever
