about

Lovely harmonies I think. Vibes by Anthony Allen. The Samba is wittily personified. Do not be alarmed. "It will not bite you more than once or twice."

lyrics

This Little Samba

This little samba has nowhere to go
This little samba has no one it knows
This little samba has no one to call
This little samba knows no one at all

Down to the beach is where it wants to go
Back to the places that it used to know
Down to the beach is where it wants to stay
And you had better not get in its way

This little samba lolls around all day
It never seems to have that much to say
If you approach it take care to be nice
It will not bite you more than once or twice

Down to the beach is where it wants to be
Close to the water’s edge near you and me
Girls seem to like it when it hangs out there
Out in the sunlight, free without a care

And if you’re thinking that this little song
Is a real samba, then you would be wrong
This little samba must confess it’s true
A bossa nova has been played for you

Down to the beach is where it lives alone
No other places ever seemed like home
So, if you see it kindly lend a hand
And you will make a friend out on the sand.
