AGUA DE BEBER by Antonio Carlos Jobim, new words by Joel Sattler

 

Sing what you want

I wouldn’t try to stop you

Sing what you want

I couldn’t try to stop you

Sing what you want

What you want

What you want 

 

Sing what you want

I wouldn’t try to stop you

Sing what you want

I couldn’t try to stop you

Sing what you want

What you want

What you want  

 

You can say everybody loves you

You can say all and anything

We’re gonna stand in line to hear you

Sit tight all through the night

Just to hear you sing

 

Just to hear you sing

Just to hear you singing your song

Just to hear you sing

Just to hear you singing your song

 

Sing what you want

I wouldn’t try to stop you

Sing what you want

I couldn’t try to stop you

Sing what you want

What you want

What you want  

 

When I first heard you I knew of you

They said you sang a simple tune

But I could not have guessed the true you

The you that comes out at night

And howls at the moon

 

Just to hear you sing

Just to hear you singing your song

Just to hear you sing

Just to hear you singing your song

 

Sing what you want

I wouldn’t try to stop you

Sing what you want

I couldn’t try to stop you

Sing what you want

What you want

What you want

Lyrics in Portuguese by Vinicius de Moraes.

 

Eu quis amar, mas tive medo

E quis salvar meu coraçao

Mas o amor sabe um segredo

O medo pode matar seu coraçao

Agua de Beber, agua de beber, camará

Agua de beber, agua de beber, camará

 

Eu nunca fiz coisa táo certa

Entrei pra escola do perdão

A minha casa vive aberta

Abre todas as portas do coraçao

Agua de beber, agua de beber, camará

Agua de beber, agua de beber, camará
