The Girl from Ipanema (Garota de Ipanema)
Olha que coisa mais linda
Mais cheia de graça
É ela, a menina
Que vem e que passa
Num doce balanço
Caminho do mar

Moça do corpo dourado
Do céu de Ipanema
O seu balançado
É mais que um poema
É a coisa mais linda
Que eu já vi passar

Ah, but I watch him so sadly
How can I tell him I love him
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day when he walks to the sea
He looks straight ahead, not at me

Ah, se ela soubesse
Que quando ela passa
O mundo inteirinho
Se enche de graça
E fica mais linda
But she doesn't see
But she doesn't see

Ah, but I watch him so sadly
How can I tell him I love him
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day when he walks to the sea
He looks straight ahead, not at me

Ah, se ela soubesse
Que quando ela passa
O mundo inteirinho
Se enche de graça
E fica mais linda
But she doesn't see
But she doesn't see

But e doesn't see
He doesn't see
He doesn't see
But he doesn't see
He doesn't see
No, he doesn't see
