Frank Sinatra - "One Note Samba" lyrics

Writer(s): antonio carlos jobim - newton mendonca

This is just a little samba

Built upon a single note

Other notes are sure to follow

But the root is still that note

Now this new note is the consequence of the one weve just been through

As Im bound to be the unavoidable consequence of you
Theres so many people who can talk and talk and talk

And just say nothing or nearly nothing

I have used up all the scale I know and at the end Ive come

To nothing I mean nothing

So I come back to my first note as I must come back to you

I will pour into that one note all the love I feel for you

Any one who wants the whole show show do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ci-do

He will find himself with no show better play the note you know
