things that I see when you're with me, Oh my Dindi.

singing Dindi, Happy Dindi, When you're with me.
I love you more each day, yes I do, yes I do;

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
Antonio Carlos Jobim:

Date of Death:

Brazilian music before João Gilberto had an excess of percussionists, so I think his great virtue was in taking off the excess ornaments and jewelry."
