A Certain Smile

by Astrud Gilberto

Astrud Gilberto (born March 30, 1940) is a Brazilian samba and bossa nova singer. She is well known for her performance of the Grammy Award-winning song "The Girl from Ipanema".




A certain smile, a certain face 
Can lead an unsuspecting heart 
On a merry chase 
Afleeting glance can say 
So many lovely things 
Suddenly you know why my heart sings 

You love awhile and when love goes 
You try to hide the tears inside 
With a cheerful pose 

*But in the hush of night 
Exactly like a bitter sweet refrain 
Comes that certain smile 
To haunt your heart again
