The Girl From Ipanema
[Home Page] [Words&Music] [Up] [Index] [Animated Version]
 
Antonio Carlos Jobim - Norman Gimbel
Portuguese lyrics by Vinícius de Moraes
D6/9                                   E7/9                                Em9
Tall and tan and young and lovely, The girl from Ipanema goes walking, And when she passes
     A7/6                 Dmaj9   Bbm6  Dmaj7
each one she passes goes "a-a-ah!"
                     Dmaj9              E7/9                                     Em9
When she walks she's like a samba that, Swings so cool and sways so gentle, That when she passes
     A7/6                 Dmaj9    D6/9
each one she passes goes "a-a-ah!"
Ebmaj7                 G#7    Ebm7                  B7  B7/6 Em9                        Gm6
Oh, but I watch her so sadly, How can I tell her I love her? Yes, I would give my heart gladly
         F#m7                      F#dim    Em7                         A7/-9
But each day when she walks to the sea, She looks straight ahead not at me
Dmaj7            Dmaj9                 E7/9                                Em9
Tall and tan and young and lovely, The girl from Ipanema goes walking, And when she passes
  A7/6                   Dmaj9
I smile, but she doesn't see, She just doesn't see, No she doesn't see
