Lyrics

Rio De Janeiro Blue

The clouds come-a creepin' and you got me weepin' this moment
I can't believe you're really gonna leave this town
Everyone knows, I can't make a move with you
You're turnin' my whole world, upside-down

And I get a feeling I've seen the last of you
Rio De Janeiro Blue

The salty air, your wind-blown hair
Reflections on a dream
Thoughts of you with who knows who
Flow through me like a stream
Brazilian serenaders, linger on
Help me lose my soul, in your song

And I get a feeling I've seen that last of you
Rio De Janeiro Blue


(Instrumental Bridge)

Months go by, I wonder why, I'm left here on my own
Could it be my destiny to live this life alone
These dark and rainy days have turned me cold
Lonely sleepless nights are gettin' on

And I get a feeling I've seen the last of you
Rio De Janeiro Blue
