Lyrics: [Vincius DeMoraes]
Music: Antonio Carlos Jobim, Gilbert Ray

An instrumental played by Jerry Garcia with Merl Saunders in Legion Of Mary

The tune also goes by the title "O Morro No Tem Vez", with lyrics in Portuguese (below). It sometimes appears (wrongly) on Legion Of Mary tapes as "Convertible Breeze"

O morro no tem vez
E o que ele fez
J foi demais
Mas olhem bem vocs
Quando derem vez ao morro
Toda a cidade vai cantar

Morro pede passagem
Morro quer se mostrar
Abram alas pro morro
Tamborim vai falar

um, dois, trs
cem, mil a batucar

O morro no tem vez
Mas se derem vez ao morro
Toda a cidade vai cantar
