Featuring Astrud Gilberto on vocals – (every young man’s fancy in 1963 and quite a few old ones!)

Stanley Getz was born in Philadelphia (Feb 2 1927 and died June 2 1991) A jazz saxophonist and bandleader, Stan Getz appeared in the film Get Yourself a College Girl (1965). But the best girl to have in 63 would have been Astrud.

Song Lyrics: The Girl From Ipanema ( J Gilberto)

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes
goes “A-a-a-h”
When she walks she’s like a samba

When she walks, she’s like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes
goes “A-a-a-h”
Oh, but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day as 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
No, she just doesn’t see…
