    It was indeed Jobim, together with Vinícius de Moraes who wrote the song ‘Garota de Ipanema’ (with Norman Gimbel supplying the English words….)
    The song was made famous by Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto
    (thanks to allmusic.com !)

    I think your lyrics are a lot better by the way…

    That’s strange, the other day I found the Portugese lyrics on a website, they said it was Brazillian folk song.

    Oh well, isn’t important



    Inspired by Malcy’s creativeness, I have come up with my own (somewhat bitter) ode to the joys of Antonio Carlos Jobim (if it was indeed he who wrote the song). Anyone else fancy letting their creative juices flow??

    Just came up with this variation:

    Been single so long his folks they wanderin’
    The Guy called Evil Malcom goes huntin’
    and when he passes for each one he passes
    he says-nahhh!

    The pretty ones they too damn Preppy
    the smarter ones to young or ugly
    and when he meets a girl he likes
    she say-nahhh!

    aw fuck it

    "I know your out there
    ’cause thats the only place to be"
