About Ela é Carioca

"Ela é Carioca" ("She’s a Carioca") is a bossa nova song composed in 1963 by Antônio Carlos Jobim, with Portuguese lyrics by Vinícius de Moraes. English lyrics were written by Ray Gilbert. The song is sometimes titled "Ele é Carioca (He’s a Carioca)." "Carioca" is a Brazilian term for someone from or something related to Rio de Janeiro. John Bush at AllMusic calls the song "a cheerful sequel to 'The Girl From Ipanema,'" which was also written by Jobim and Moraes, and features lyrics about a young woman from Rio. The song was used as the name of a 2005 documentary film about "Jobim's love for Rio de Janeiro and the influence it had on his music" - Tom Jobim: She’s a Carioca. The first recording of the song was by Os Cariocas in 1963. Antônio Carlos Jobim recorded it for his 1965 album, The Wonderful World of Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Ela é carioca, ela é carioca
Basta o jeitinho dela andar
Nem ninguém tem carinho assim para dar

Eu vejo na cor dos seus olhos
As noites do Rio ao luar
Vejo a mesma luz, vejo o mesmo céu
Vejo o mesmo mar

Ela é meu amor, só me vê a mim
A mim que vivi para encontrar
Na luz do seu olhar
A paz que sonhei

Só sei que sou louco por ela
E pra mim ela é linda demais
E além do mais
Ela é carioca, ela é carioca

Só sei que sou louco por ela
E pra mim ela é linda demais
E além do mais
Ela é carioca, ela é carioca
