There's no bluer blue than the sky in Rio,
There's no softer white than the sand in Rio,
No star shines as bright as Rio in my dreams.
 
I can feel the rush of the waves in Rio,
The cool fresh salty mist on my face in Rio,
No place I'd rather be than Rio in my dreams.
 
bridge
Dancing to the samba on the beach,
Carnivale memories,
Romance in the air.
Statue on the mountain looking down,
Reaching out to call me home,
How I love to be there.

 verse
The ocean wants to play all day in Rio,
Sunset-painted nights never fade in Rio,
I close my eyes and see Rio in my dreams.
 
Instrumental section
 
repeat bridge, last verse & chorus.
Nowhere I'd rather be than Rio in my dreams.
Rio in my dreams. (3X)
