Slightly Out of Tune

Versions : #1#2#3
If you tell me I sing out of tune my love
You should know it hurts me to the core, my love
It’s just the very lucky few that have an ear like yours
I have only what God gave me, nothing more
If you insist my singing is unusual
Call me what you like, say I'm not musical
How can I defend myself and make you understand
That this is bossa-nova, this is how it's meant to sound
There's something you might see, if you’d just do your part
That even if I sing off key, I have a gentle heart
I took your picture with my trusty Rolleiflex
And it exposed just how ungrateful your heart is
Please don’t say those words again about my love
For it is the greatest you will find in all the world, love
You’re so into your music that you cannot see the truth
That even if I’m desafinados
Hidden deep inside… and beating in silence
Even if I’m desafinados
My heart is beating just for you

Direct translation, with some parts borrowed from Paul Hirsh version (thanks, Paul!), and my personal modifications for rhyme and flow.
