The Girl From Ipanema

Salah satu lagu sepanjang masa, The Girl From Ipanema, ditulis pada tahun 1962 oleh Antônio Carlos Jobim untuk musik dan lirik Portugisnya oleh Vinicius de Moraes. Sementara lirik Inggrisnya ditulis oleh Norman Gimbel. Penyanyi yang pertama kali membawakannya adalah Astrud Gilberto bersama João Gilberto dan Stan Getz. dan mendapat Grammy untuk kategori Record of The Year tahun 1965. Pada perkembangannya lagu ini dibawakan oleh banyak penyanyi, mulai dari Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee, Amy Winehouse, Dianna Krall sementara untuk Indonesia lagu ini dibawakan penyanyi Andien di album pertamanya, Bisikan Hati. Lagu ini pun terpecah jadi dua versi yakni The Girl From Ipanema sendiri dan The Boy From Ipanema. Berikut saya muat lirik lagu versi Astrud Gilberto:

Olha que coisa mais linda,
Mais cheia de graça.
É ela a menina que vem e que passa,
num doce balanço a caminho do mar.
Moça do corpo dourado do sol de Ipanema,
O seu balançado émais que um poema,
Éa coisa mais linda que eu já vi passar.

Ah, por que estou tão sozinho?
Ah, por que tudo é tão triste?
Ah, a beleza que existe,
A beleza que não é só minha,
Que também passa sozinha.

Ah, se ela soubesse
Que, quando ela passa,
O mundo inteirinho se enche de graça
E fica mais lindo por causa do amor,

Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes – ah
When she walks, she’s like a samba that swings so cool and sways so
gently
That when she passes, each one she passes goes – aah
Ooh But he watches so sadly, How can he tell her he loves her,
Yes he would give his heart gladly,
but instead when she walks to the sea,
she looks straight ahead not at him,
Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, he smiles – but she doesn’t see

***

(Ooh) But he sees her so sadly, how can he tell her he loves her
Yes he would give his heart gladly,
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at him
Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, he smiles – but she doesn’t see
(She just doesn’t see)x6
