It’s a quarter to seven

On a Saturday morning

I open my eyes

After the Friday night

I don’t worry about

The rain upon my window

‘Cause where I’m going

I know the sun will always shine


So now I’m heading away

Down to Rio de Janeiro

I’ll be leaving all my

Lonely times behind

And if I’m looking for love in

Rio de Janeiro

There’ll be someone there

I know who’ll find the time


In this golden place

There’s a smiling face

I’ve got to find

And I won’t have to wait too long

Before she’s mine


My friends are telling me

I’m chasing rainbows

Or searching for the

Gold beneath the sea

But rainbows only shine

When it’s been raining

And gold will never

Keep you company


So now I’m wonderin’

What to say in conversation

To the lady of my dreams

That I should meet

If I speak to her

The language of all nations

Then I’m sure that she’d be

Knocked right off her feet


And I know she will

Then I’ll love her

Till the end of time

And I won’t have to wait too long

Before she’s mine


Well I’ve been happy enough in

Rio de Janeiro

I’ve got a woman here

That I can call my own

It doesn’t matter if

I’m living here or there

‘Cause she used to live

Next door to me back home


So if you’re thinking that

I’ve settled down forever

I’ll be telling you

You’ve made a big mistake

‘Cause I’ll be heading away

Down to Denver, Colorado

There’s a woman there

I’ve got to try and make


She can fill the hole

In my heart and soul

For a long, long time

And I won’t have to wait

Too long before she’s mine


I won’t have to wait too long

I won’t have to wait too long

I won’t have to wait too long

I won’t have to wait too long
