Água de Beber

I believe I learned my songs from the birds of the Brazilian forest.
~Tom Jobim

A song by Brazilian composer Tom Jobim for Music Monday. The Portuguese lyrics (first video) are by Vinicius de Moraes and the English lyrics (second video) are by Norman Gimbel:

Flora Purim
Connie Evingson

Thanks for the Jobim fix! I'm a big fan from way back. Never heard the English lyrics before.
