But each day when she talks to the sea,
She looks straight ahead when she pees
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me
Tall ten young and beautiful
Tall tanned, young and beautiful
She looks straight at her, not at he...
She looks straight ahead, not at he...
The Girl from Ipanema is a real (and charming) lady that runs a shop in Rio. In truth, she was 12 or 13 when this song was written about her.
Getz/Gilberto's, "The Girl from Ipanema"
Talk and then young, in love
A gal for eep anema gaswocky
Tall and thin and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
