The Andrews Sisters

The Andrews Sisters were a highly successful close harmony singing group of the swing and boogie-woogie eras. The group consisted of three sisters: contralto LaVerne Sophia Andrews (July 6, 1911 – May 8, 1967), soprano Maxene Angelyn Andrews (January 3, 1916 – October 21, 1995), and mezzo-soprano Patricia Marie "Patty" Andrews (born February 16, 1918). Throughout their long career, the sisters sold well over 75 million records (the last official count released by MCA Records in the mid-1970s). Their 1941 hit "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" can be considered an early example of rhythm and blues or jump blues. more »

Supposing you need a vacation
Brazil is the place you should be
But you don't understand 
What they're saying

Or you can't read a sign that you see
But, you don't have to know the language
With the moon in the sky 
And the girl in your arms

And a look in her eyes
You stop at the Copacabana
With the Sugar Loaf mountain in view
So the words on the menu mean nothing

You can't ask a soul what to do
But, you don't have to know the language
With the moon in the sky
And the girl in your arms

And a look in her eyes
When she smiles your way
What more would you want anyone to say
So you sigh, just sigh

You don't have to mention 
That Yankee phrase: "Ay, ay"
Perhaps when you end your vacation
You bring back a bit of Brazil

So you can't understand 
What she's saying
You need an interpreter still
But you don't have to know the language

If you don't want to say good-bye
With the moon in the sky
And a girl in your arms
And a look in her eyes

No you don't have to know
You don't have to know
The language isn't necessary
'Cause the meaning doesn't very

The language isn't necessary
When she smiles your way
What more would you want anyone to say
So you sigh just sigh

You don't have to mention 
That Yankee phrase: "Ay, Ay"
So perhaps when you end your vacation
You bring back a bit of Brazil

But you can't understand 
What she's saying
You need an interpreter still
But you don't have to know the language

If you don't want to say good-bye
