Astrud Gilberto

Astrud Gilberto's, "Girl From Ipanema"
Better Lyrics:
Short and pale and old and ugly
the girl from Chattanooga goes walking and when she passes
each man she passes says "YUK".
Original Lyrics:
Tall and tan and young and lovely
the girl from Ipanema goes walking and when she passes
each man she passes says "AH".
