The Girl From Ipanema
by Stan Getz & João Gilberto

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes
Goes "A-a-a-h"
When she walks she's like a samba
When she walks, she's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes
Goes "A-a-a-h"
Oh, but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day as 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
Doesn't see. She just doesn't see
No, she just doesn't

For those who haven't had the pleasure, this is one of the most successful bossa nova albums of all time. Getz and Gilberto do something really special here. One of the best guitarists with one of the best, smoothest sax players in my memory. Picked this up in a thrift shop on vinyl for $2 on a whim in high school. Had no idea the depth of bossa nova or MPB at the time.

same here Joe . I was listeng to Duke Ellington & Benny Goodman type stuff back in high school in the 60's and I guess after hearin this on the radio I found this one in a pawn shop where I bought my first guitars , then after finding a Herb Ellis Charlie Byrd album , I was really hooked on Bossa Nova
