rio
(Music: Alice May, Words: Alice May)

Verse
Saying good-bye to friends,
saying good-bye to loneliness.
I'm on my way to Rio,
the place where I wanna be.
You know that I soon will leave.
So don't try to make me stay.
I'm on my way to Rio,
I'm coming back some day.

Don't you ask me why,
got to live a little longer.
Don't you start to cry,
got to be a little stronger.
Don't you ask me why,
got to live a little longer.
Don't you start to cry,
got to be a little stronger.

Chorus
Oh-oh-oh Rio (de Janeiro),
Rio...o...o...o...o...
Land of sun, samba and wine.
Rio (de Janeiro),
Rio...o...o... I feel fine.

Verse
Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in happiness?
Come with me to Rio,
the place where I wanna be.
Dancing the night away,
no time for tears and sorrow.
I'm going there tomorrow.
I'm coming back some day.
