Ipanema


I'm on vacation so I thought I'd dust off the following while I'm enjoying some sun shine...

Homage to The Girl From Ipanema sung by Joao Gilberto & various






When I stroll the beaches

for the girl from Ipanema

She is there, really there

I find her in the eyes of girls

in their sway and their swirls

They dance with sand

while the sea plays samba

They touch the waves - mermaids - all



But their eyes seem so familiar

something beats my heart harder



Anywhere a woman sways

her beauty she displays

No matter where I am from

there is always someone

She stands with me, don’t you see



Tall or small or young or older

the girl stands beside me, and I see



When I stroll the beaches

of Ipanema she is there, really there

I find her in the heart of girls

in the way they smile thru their curls



They dance with sand

while the sea plays samba

They touch the waves - mermaids - all



But I notice their eyes

I’ve seen them before

Anywhere a woman walks

The beauty you seek is there

with you now. It’s really there.



Ooh, I walk on gladly

Pulling my arms

she holds on firmly

And I do see - I really see.
