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.


Antonio Carlos Jobim & Newton Mendonca & Joao Gilberto
Trans. Mal Adam

Who believes it's true
Is there love in a smile and a flower?
She's just a dreaming fool
She has lost her way
So in love with a smile and a flower
Everything's gone in a day
Who becomes so sad
Sees a world through the tears of her loss
For love there's such a cost
Now so all alone
Finds a way love will only deceive
A happiness she won't believe
Yes she's gonna cry
She breaks her heart so fast her tears run dry
Now she's back again
To the love of the smile and the flowers
She finds everything ends
Love - your pain has gone
So revealing the tears always fall
Love's true after all
