MUSIC: Astrud Gilberto ~ The Girl From Ipanema (sung all in English)

One of my all-time favorites! Well not quite "jazz", it's categorized more as 'bossa nova'. This Youtube is all in English. The original version starts off in Portuguese and then changes to English. The original is much better. Still looking for it.

Enjoy!

Song is from the 1964 album "Getz/Gilberto" by Stan Getz & João Gilberto. Music video is from the 1964 film "Get Yourself a College Girl"




Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes - ah

When she walks, shes like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes goes - ooh

(ooh) but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes I would give my heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall, (and) tan, (and) young, (and) lovely
The girl from ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, I smile - but she doesnt see (doesnt see)
(she just doesnt see, she never sees me,...)

One of my favorites, it's at the top of my "lounge" playlist.

Hello Jason,

you were already cool in my book, but now, after your comment, you are upped in the cool scale a few notches to 'cooler than cool'!!

thank you.
