The Boy from Ipanema (Digitally Remastered 96) Lyrics

By Peggy Lee
Take from Ultra-Lounge / Tiki Sampler Album


Tall and tan and young and handsome
The boy from Ipanema goes walking
And when he passes
Each girl he passes goes - ah

When he walks
He's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when he passes each girl
He passes goes - ah

Ooh, but I watch him so sadly
How can I tell him I love him
Yes I would give my heart gladly
But each day when he walks to the sea
He looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall, and tan, and young and handsome
The boy from Ipanema goes walking
And when he passes me, I smile

Oh, I watch him so sadly
Can not tell him I love him
I would give my heart gladly
But each day when he walks to the sea
He looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall, and tan, and young and handsome
The boy from Ipanema goes walking
And when he passes me, I smile

He so cool and calm and so collected
Makes a girl feel a bit neglected
That boy from Ipanema doesn't see me.
