The Girl From Ipanema

I love this song, below are the lyrics, in English, and the chords – yes now that I have a guitar, again, I might give it a shot 😉

Jobim Antonio Carlos : “Girl from ipanema” Guitar chords

Writer:Vinícius de Moraes and Norman Gimbel (English lyrics)
Composer:Antônio Carlos Jobim


Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes – ah
When she walks, she’s like a samba that swings so cool and sways so gently
That when she passes, each one she passes goes – aah

Ooh But I watch her so sadly,
How can I tell her who loves her,
Yes it would give his heart gladly
,
Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking

And when she passes, he smiles – but she doesn’t see
(Ooh) But I watch her so sadly, how can tell her I love her
Yes I would give my heart gladly,
But each day, when 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, she doesn’t see)
