The Girl from Ipanema

Tall and tan and young and lovely
the girl from Ipanema goes walking
and when she passes each one she passes goes ahh.

When she walks shes like a samba
that swings so cool and sways so gentle
that when she passes each one she passes goes ahh.

Chorus:
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 doesnt see.
