You Don't Have To Know The Language

This song is by Bing Crosby.

Supposing you need a vacation
Brazil is the place you should be
So you can't understand what they're saying
Or you can't read a sign that you see

But, you don't have to know the language
With the moon in the sky
And the girl in your arms
And a look in her eyes

You stop at the Copacabana
With Sugar Loaf Mountain in view
So the words on the menu mean nothing
You can't ask a soul what to do

But, you don't have to know the language
With the moon in the sky
And the girl in your arms
And a look in her eyes

When she smiles your way
What more would you want anyone to say?
So you sigh, just sigh
You don't have to mention that Yankee phrase "Ay, ay"

Perhaps when you end your vacation
You bring back a bit of Brazil
So you can't understand what she's saying
You need an interpreter still

But, you don't have to know the language
With the moon in the sky
And a girl in your arms
And a look in her eye, eye, eye

You don't have to know the language
If you don't want to say goodbye

With the moon in the sky
And the girl in your arms
It's a look in her eyes
You don't have to know
You don't have to know

The language isn't necessary
'Cause the meaning doesn't vary
If you got the charm it takes
The language isn't necessary

When she smiles your way
What more would you want anyone to say?
So you sigh, just sigh
You don't have to mention that Yankee phrase "Ay, Ay"

Perhaps when you end your vacation
You bring back a bit of Brazil
So you can't understand what she's saying
You need an interpreter still

But, you don't even have to know the language
With the moon in the sky
And the girl in your arms
And a look in her eyes, ay, ay, ay, ay

No, you don't have to know the language
If you don't want to say goodbye
