Sergio Mendes – Senhoras Do Amazonas lyrics

Rio, vim saber de ti e vi
Vi teu tropical sem fim
Quadrou de ser um mar
Longe Anhangá

Tantas cunhãs e eu curumim
O uirapuru
(Oh, lua azul)
Cantou pra mim

Rio, vim saber de ti, meu mar
Negro maracá jari
Pará, Paris jardim, muiraquitãs
Tantas manhãs, nós no capim

(Oh, Deus daqui)
Jjurou assim

Porque fugir se enfim me queres?
Só me feriu como me feres
A mais civilizada das mulheres
Senhoras do Amazonas que sois

Donas dos homens e das setas
Por que já não amais vossos poetas?
