Slide10 l.jpg

Ja dancei o twist atze demais!

Mas no sei,

Me cansei,

Do calipso

Ao cha-cha-cha.

So danco samba,

So danco samba,

Vai, vai, vai, vai, vai.

So danco samba,

So danco samba,

Vai!

The Jet from Rio, non stop U.S.A.!

This new sound came one day,

And it’s clear that

It’s here to stay.

It’s jazz ‘n’ samba,

It’s so refreshing,

Like a new perfume.

It’s jazz ‘n’ samba,

It’s jazz ‘n’ samba,

Umm!
