Lyrics

AS IF  

 

so i put my feet into the warm sand

watching beautiful people walk by hand in hand

they all seem happy having a lot of fun

and i pick up my book to read chapter one

and there it goes

 

hi how are you what’s your name

where are you from how long to you stay

hi how are you what’s your name

where are you from how long do you stay

do you like rio

do you like rio

você gosta do rio

 

so i go to the museum of modern art

to do some cultural stuff to play my tourist part

there approaches mister intellectual

he wants to chat me up i could tell

and there it goes

 

hi how are you...

 

and i am always walking

as if i knew my way

i am always walking 

as if i knew my way

i cross the streets by red light

don’t wait as the tourists do

i’ve taken off all my band aids

no more bruises from the summer shoes

and my skin is getting darker day by day

and i am always walking as if i knew my way

i am always walking 

to avoid the usual

 

hi how are you what’s your name

where are you from how long do you stay

 

oi qual e seu nome 

de onde e voce 

quanto tempo vai ficar

voce gosta do rio

eu gosto de você
