Ugly Duckling

Ugly Duckling - Rio De Janeiro

rate me

[VERSE 1]

Now you can come visit any time of year

And the sun is shinin and the skies are clear

If you're lookin for love you can find it here

So give Diz a couple minutes up inside your ear

I'm lookin for the light like a Jedi Knight

So I'm headed for Brazil on a red-eyed flight

Cause I gotta hit the festival (Tell em why) it's set to go

Four whole days at a very high decibel

We cut loose and dance in the streets

All the way down to Copacabana Beach

And when it's all over recovery mode

I'm out in Ipanema to relax and reload

Cause I think we got a UD show tomorrow

And I have to go to São Paulo - I know

Andy's at a soccer game, Rod's in a speedo

I'm not Michael Caine but I _Blame it on Rio_

[CHORUS]

You gotta go to Rio, go to Rio with me

If you wanna carnival, carnival with me

Cause you need to get away, get away with me

And we're gonna do it now, do it now with me

If you gotta go to Rio, go to Rio with me

If you wanna carnival, carnival with me

Cause you need to get away, get away with me

To

(Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro)

[VERSE 2]

Get off the sofa, let's bossanova

Come and do la cosa nostra

And we're gonna make it like presto

Alakazaam, out with my man windjam on the catamaran

It's Rio de Janeiro, nail the map with a thumb tack

And before you unpack you wish you could come back

(Why?) Because the weather's warm and toasty like an oven mitt

And I'd be lyin if I said I wasn't lovin it

Watch the palm trees sway in the breeze

Beautiful girls talkin to me in Portuguese

I do [?] nada, which means the minimum

Sippin Brazilian coffee with a bit of cinnamon

Do you find the daily grind is inescapable?

Have a rest from the stress [?]

There's no other place to go (bro) it's the apex

Talk to your boss and save up your paychecks

We gotta

Let's go, let's go

Let's go, let's go

Let's go, let's go

We gotta go

Let's go, let's go

(Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro)

[CHORUS]

You gotta go to Rio, go to Rio with me

If you wanna carnival, carnival with me

Cause you need to get away, get away with me

And we're gonna do it now, do it now with me

You gotta go to Rio, go to Rio with me

If you wanna carnival, carnival with me

Cause you need to get away, get away with me

To

(Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro)
