Franks, Michael - Samba Blue Lyrics

We said goodbye one last time at the Louvre
Our long happy Summer was through
Just lovers in Paris as common as doves
But I still think of you, Samba Blue

Just how long has it been?
I still remember when
We strolled the Champs Elysees
Sharing a warm baguette
Coffee with anisette
We kissed in the Metro
In love very retro

I've visited Paris so many times since
And it always reminds me of you
And happily now all these many years hence
You are still by my side, Samba Blue

To Astrud Gilberto tunes
We made love in the afternoon
Then strolled down the Champs Elysees
Sharing a warm baguette
Coffee with anisette
We kissed in the Metro
In love very retro

We're together again, by the Seine, Samba Blue
On the grand avenues, me and you, Samba Blue

    this really made me do the samba :)

  6. Matias Wagner

    This is just brazilian sensualìdade and he knew about this a long time Brazil has the luck to make this music possible because of many people with diverse cultural backgrounds lives in Brazil and Africa has the biggest part in it ,no Africa no samba ,all credits to them....

    My favorite song from his " Time Together" CD. I was in Paris in May of 2017 and was humming this song while walking the streets of Paris. What a great experience !!

    O, just great music of Michael Franks that I discovered in Mindanao in the Philippines. The island hopping experience in and around Samal Island with great people the Pinoy... Mr. Franks is a genius in making a warm atmosphere. Mr. Smooth is dashing on my i-pad and in and around our nipa-hut in Paradise Island just a few minutes away from boosting Davao. Great with a sip of Tanduay and pineapple juice. Why this kind of music is not produced anymore these days? Thanks, Mr. Franks!

    ●Michael Franks - The original MR. MELLOW!
    ☆Whether John Mayer will accept it or not...He got his vocal style from this original. ..No Doubt(!) in my mind!
    Thanks for all 'mellow moments, Michael!'

    Days and days of summer sun and sea, along with mixes of jazz and fusion, Gino Vanelli, Chick Corea and Egberto Gismonti, I would listen to Michael Franks, my little white boy American, who knew how I felt about my music. Such a light groove to take me through my days in San Diego and La Jolla....

    My favorite artist the man
