Song Meaning
Verse 1
Supposing you need a vacation
Brazil is the place you should be
But you don't understand
What they're saying
Verse 2
Or you can't read a sign that you see
But, you don't have to know the language
With the moon in the sky
And the girl in your arms
Verse 3
And a look in her eyes
You stop at the Copacabana
With the Sugar Loaf mountain in view
So the words on the menu mean nothing
Verse 4
You can't ask a soul what to do
But, you don't have to know the language
With the moon in the sky
And the girl in your arms
Verse 5
And a look in her eyes
When she smiles your way
What more would you want anyone to say
So you sigh, just sigh
Verse 6
You don't have to mention
That Yankee phrase: "Ay, ay"
Perhaps when you end your vacation
You bring back a bit of Brazil
Verse 7
So you can't understand
What she's saying
You need an interpreter still
But you don't have to know the language
Verse 8
If you don't want to say good-bye
With the moon in the sky
And a girl in your arms
And a look in her eyes
Verse 9
No you don't have to know
You don't have to know
The language isn't necessary
'Cause the meaning doesn't very
Verse 10
The language isn't necessary
When she smiles your way
What more would you want anyone to say
So you sigh just sigh
Verse 11
You don't have to mention
That Yankee phrase: "Ay, Ay"
So perhaps when you end your vacation
You bring back a bit of Brazil
Verse 12
But you can't understand
What she's saying
You need an interpreter still
But you don't have to know the language
Verse 13
If you don't want to say good-bye
