  1. Carioca Kiss

From The Recordings Html

Barbara Lynn Perea
Carioca Kiss (2013) I wrote this tune sitting on a beach in Ipanema, Brazil.  At the time, Rio de Janeiro was beginning preparations for the 2016 Olympic Games. The enthusiasm was over flowing, people learning new skills, Rio under reconstruction to accommodate this upcoming event.  I could hear the samba rhythm between the traffic and the waves.  I went to Brazil because I had been singing the compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Brazilian composer and author, since the 1960's.  I wanted to see and feel the place of their inception. The people were so kind, I sang in Rio and visited the Botanical Garden of Rio de Janeiro that he frequented for inspiration.

Lyrics

Oooh Ipanema with your Carioca smile I have come into your wonderment for such a little while, oo oh Ipanema the masters in your midst I can see it from the imprint of your Carioca kiss.
The sea erases footprints in the sand, it steals your heart and gently takes your hand,
the sun shine sparkles on the waves the sea foam takes it all away.
La la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la
la la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la la
oo oh Ipanema with your Carioca smile, I have come into your wonderment for such a little
while, oo oh Ipanema the masters in your midst, I can see it by the imprint of your Carioca kiss
La la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la
la la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la la
