About Dindi

"Dindi" (Portuguese pronunciation: [dʒĩˈdʒi] - which sounds like Jin-jee in English) is a song composed by Antônio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Aloysio de Oliveira. It is a world-famous bossa nova standard. Jobim wrote this piece especially for the Brazilian singer Sylvia Telles. "Dindi" is a reference to a farm named "Dirindi", in Brazil, a place that Jobim and his friend/collaborator Vinicius de Moraes used to visit (according to Helena Jobim, his sister, in her book "Antonio Carlos Jobim - Um Homem Iluminado"). In December 1966, just a short while after Telles had recorded this piece with the guitarist Rosinha de Valença, she was killed in a road accident in Rio de Janeiro. Céu, tão grande é o céu E bandos de nuvens que passam ligeiras Prá onde elas vão, ah, eu não sei, não sei.

Sky, so vast is the sky, with far away clouds just wandering by
Where do they go? Oh I don't know, don't know
Wind that speaks to the leaves, telling stories that no one believes
Stories of love belong to you and to me

Oh, Dindi, if I only had words I would say all the beautiful
Things that I see when you're with me, oh my Dindi
Oh Dindi, like the song of the wind in the trees, that's how my heart is
Singing Dindi, happy Dindi, when you're with me

I love you more each day, yes I do, yes I do
I'd let you go away, if you take me with you

Don't you know, Dindi, I'd be running and searching for you like a river that
Can't find the sea, that would be me without you, my Dindi
Can't find the sea that would be me without you Dindi

Like a river that can't find the sea, that would be me without you, my Dindi
