The Girl From Ipanema
Stan Getz Lyrics


Olha que coisa mais linda mais cheia de graça
É ela menina que vem que passa
Num doce balanço caminho do mar

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

Ah, porque estou tão sozinho
Ah, porque tudo é tão triste
Ah, a beleza que existe
A beleza que não é só minha
Que também passa sozinha

Ah, se ela soubesse
Que quando ela passa
O mundo sorrindo se enche de graça
E fica mais lindo por causa do amor

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, she's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gently
That when she passes Each one she passes goes, ah

Oh, but he watches so sadly
How can he tell her he loves her
Yes, he would give his heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at him

Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes He smiles, but she doesn't see

Oh, but he sees her so sadly
How can he tell her he loves her
Yes, he would give his heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at him

Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes he smiles, but she doesn't see
She just doesn't see, no she just doesn't see
But she doesn't see, she doesn't see, no she just doesn't see

@feodoric oh boi, in Bossa Nova there's even a song dedicated to this 'off key phenomenon'. "Desafinado" or "Off Key" by the Bossa Nova inventor himself, Joao Gilberto, also the husband of this singer.

The lyric translation
https://muzikum.eu/en/127-11945-214328/stan-getz/desafinado-english-translation.html


Bossa nova has always been intended as cool, mellow, introvert, intimate as opposed to hot, swing, extrovert, and energetic. The way of singing it as Gilberto projected, would be natural almost like talking with almost no hint of obvious vibrato - in which the singer sing in an off-beat manner, 1-2 steps before or after the beat. This really complements the constant rhythm of the guitar or piano itself. (The way of playing the guitar rhythm was also invented by Gilberto, he tried to incorporate the samba rhythm into the acoustic guitar). So yeah, This is my TED talk, thank you for listening. XDD

Tall and tan
and young and lovely
the girl from ipanema
goes walking
and when she passes
each one she passes
goes ahhh
When she walks
she's like a samba
that swings so cool
and sways so gently
that when she passes
each one she passes
goes ahhh

Oh, but he watches so sadly
how can he tell her he loves her
yes, he would give his heart gladly
but each day when she walks to the sea
she looks straight ahead not at he
Tall and tan
and young and lovely
the girl from ipanema
goes walking
and when she passes
he smiles but she doesn't see
she just doesn't see
Oh, but he watches so sadly
how can he tell her he loves her
yes, he would give his heart gladly
but each day when she walks to the sea
she looks straight ahead not at he
Tall and tan
and young and lovely
the girl from ipanema
goes walking
and when she passes
he smiles but she doesn't see
she just doesn't see

This performance represents a good alternate version to the one on the Getz/Gilberto LP.

@Rick White Cool!! Capoeira is amazing, a great brazilian heritage just as Bossa-Nova.

Rick White

@Fillipe Azevedo I practice Capoeira and Jiujitsu so I have a lot of Portuguese speaking Brazilian friends, Portuguese is a beautiful language and to hear Brazilian women speak English...❤️❤️❤️
