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
