Aquarela do Brasil (Watercolors of Brazil / Brazil)
Music by Ary Barroso, 1939
English Lyrics by Sidney Keith “Bob” Russell, 1942

The Brazil that I knew
Where I wandered with you
Lives in my imagination.

Where the songs are passionate,
And a smile has flash in it,
And a kiss has art in it,
For you put your heart in it,
And so I dream of old Brazil

Where hearts were entertaining June,
We stood beneath an amber moon
And softly murmured “someday soon”
We kissed and clung together,
Then tomorrow was another day
The morning found me miles away
With still a million things to say

Now when twilight dims the sky above,
Recalling thrills of our love,
There’s one thing I’m certain of;
Return I will
To old Brazil.

Brazil Phrasing, as sung by Kate Bush

Bra-zil / when hearts were en-ter-tai-ned in June /
We stood be-neath an am-ber moon /
And soft-ly whis-pered / Some-day soon /
We kissed / and clung to-ge-ther /

Then / to-mor-row was a-no-ther day /
The morn-ing found me miles a-way /
With still a mil-lion / things to say /

And now / the twi-light moves / the skies a-bove /
Re-call-ing thrills / of our love /
There’s one thing I’m cer-tain of /
Re-turn / I will / to old / Bra-zil
