Rio

Rio

Free and rebellious,
You are one of those
Who dances and beats
To the rhythm of the samba
Ipanema isn't just the girl that we think she is

In this city
The heart in the water
A forest
Is the refuge of boats
Every night
Red is the colour of her skin, her skin

It's not worth the pain
I am no longer the same

Rio
Your sugarloaf is a bird
Jesus himself has given up his cross
He keeps vigil within you with open arms

And your children
Of all different blood
Walk on the rooftops
There isn't just Guanahara
The ball at his foot
No dreams could crumble

Winter is dead
Summer is January

Rio
Your sugarloaf is a bird
Jesus himself has given up his cross
He keeps vigil within you with open arms

Rio
Carioca, this is your flag
Each colour

Defining your faith
Green Tijuca
Blue, bossa night
Yellow, Copacabana
White and Certi
The water is the earth
Where you come to life

Rio
Rio
Rio
Your sugarloaf is a bird
Jesus himself has given up his cross
He keep vigil within you with open arms

Rio fala do amor
Repeat
