  • 2. September, 2013 Felipe Natal Abdo 2 My land has palm trees Where the thrush sings. The birds that sing in here Do not sing as they do there. Our skies have more stars, Our valleys have more flowers. Our forests have more life, Our lives have more love. In dreaming, alone, at night, I find more pleasure in there. My land has palm trees Where the thrush sings. My land has beauties Who cannot be found in here; In dreaming — alone, at night — I find more pleasure in there. My land has palm trees, Where the thrush sings. May God never allow That I die before I return; That I do not see the beauties That I cannot find in here; That I do not see the palm trees Where the thrush sings. Gonçalves Dias, 1843, Coimbra, Portugal Brazil

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-ah!" 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 when 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 doesn't see” Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes Music
