Basia – Astrud lyrics

Nobody knows where she came from
The tall-and-tanned-young-and-lovely girl
With a voice as light as air
Nobody knows but no one cares
'Cause everybody loves her
When she signs makes you dream a fairy tale

With a certain smile

She can make you feel so nice
Saying gently "Goodbye sadness"
Still will break your heart

Listen to her once
You'll feel lucky she was there
One note samba would never be the same

Where is she now the lovely girl
With the softest voices you ever heard
Asking---fly me to the moon
I know I'll find her in the sun of Copacabana
Meditating
Her lonely heart is nothing new

With a certain smile

She can make you feel so nice
Saying gently "Goodbye sadness"
Still will break your heart

Listen to her once
You'll feel lucky she was there
One note samba would never be the same
Never be the same

Listen to her once
You'll feel lucky she was there
One note samba would never be

Nobody knows where she came from
The tall-and-tanned-young-and-lovely girl
With a voice as light as air
Nobody knows but no one cares
'Cause everybody loves her
When she signs makes you dream a fairy tale

    This song, "Astrud" by Basia is a tribute to one of her inspirations. Astrud Gilberto is a Brazilian samba singer from the '60s. Basia makes a reference to one of the songs she sings in the lyrics i.e. singing "Fly Me to the Moon". Astrud has influenced Basia's music and the song is done with samba elements to represent this. Beautiful vibe and melody.
