(M. Callaghan /are. James)

From up in the mountains you can see the beaches lying in the sun
Copacobana to Leblon
And daily you go there knowing you will see a vision when she comes
Walking straight out of a Jobim song
You can't help but stop and stare - olive skin and raven hair
With a voice like angels wings she casts her spell oh yeah

She's a Carioca girl, walks like an angel, talks like an angel
Carioca girl, she'll take your breath away
She's a Carioca girl, walks like an angel

Slowly the night falls,
As Corcovado looks down on the scene below
And music spills from the street cafés
Gilberto Gil playing -
The songs they seem to resonate with life and love
In the Brazillian way
And you see her dancing there,
How she seems to float on air
With a rhythm divine she can leave life behind,
In the way that she moves transcends time. You can tell

She's a Carioca girl, walks like an angel, talks like an angel
Carioca girl, she takes your breath away
Carioca girl, Carioca girl yeah yeah
And you see her dancing there,
How she seems to float on air

She's a Carioca girl, walks like an angel, talks like an angel
Carioca girl, oh yeah, she takes your breath away...
Carioca girl Carioca Girl Carioca girl Carioca Girl
You see the way she moves you see those smiling eyes
You see the sound of Rio, you see it in her eyes
You hear the sound of Rio, in her eyes
