(Vinícius de Moraes)

Duet with John Pizzarelli

Love is like a never-ending melody
Poets have compared it to a symphony
A symphony conducted by the lighting of the moon
But this song of love is slightly out of tune

Once those kisses raised you to a fever pitch
Now the orchestration doesn't seem so rich
Seems to me you changed the tune you used to sing
Like the bossa nova love should swing

Love ought to harmonize two souls in perfect time
Now the song is different and the words don't even rhyme
'Cause you'd forget the melody your heart would always croon
And so what good's a heart that's slightly out of tune?

Get your heart in tune the way it used to be
Join with us in harmony and sing a song of loving
You're bound to get in tune again before too long
There'll be no desafinado
When your heart belongs to her completely
Then you won't be slightly out of tune
Just sing along with me
