O Pato (the Duck)

Composer / Lyricist: Jayme Da Sylva
Neuza Teixeira 1960

O pato
the duck was dancing by the water,
quack, quack, quack
the rhythm made him think he oughta
quack, quack
he was dancing to the samba,

Then a lovely swan swam by
in all her majesty
and then she loosened up,
ah hoochy coochy coo did the swan,
she joined the duck
and goose and did the samba too.
you should have seen
the kind of samba she could do,
