Let Me Take You To Rio - Ester Dean feat

Let Me Take You To Rio - Ester Dean feat. Carlinhos Brown

"Let Me Take You To Rio" is the second song featured in the Rio Soundtrack. It was performed by Ester Dean and Carlinhos Brown.

The song was played in the movie when Blu and Linda first arrived at the city of Rio. They were being driven by Tulio and passed through the world-famous Copacabana Beach to arrive at his aviary. It was paused when the three characters were stopped by a traffic light with a small carnival parade crossing the road in front of Tulio's working jeep. It was also when Blu first met Nico and Pedro. The song was played again after the traffic resumed.

Two different versions of this song were produced, "Take You To Rio" which was played in Rio's credits and "Rio Rio" which was played in Rio 2's credits.

Lyrics

Rio Rio, Rio, Na
Rio, Rio, Rio
Let me take you to Rio, Rio
Fly over the ocean like an eagle, eagle
Then we can chill in my gazeebo, gazeebo
Oh, oh, oh, oh - nah, nah, nah
Let me take you to Rio, Rio
Fly over the ocean like an eagle, eagle
Then we can chill in my gazeebo,
Oh, oh, oh, oh - nah, nah, nah
Veja como é rico o nosso riso
O sol é feliz de saber rir também
Água verde rindo, mares vindo
Tudo é samba, e o samba vem sambar meu bem
Para ter um amor e um pouquinho de Rio
Onde a paixão é o riso de alguém
Vou te dar calor e um carinho de ritmo
Todo meu amor por natureza vem, vem
Let me take you to Rio, Rio
Fly over the ocean like an eagle, eagle
Then we can chill in my gazeebo, gazeebo
Oh, oh, oh, oh - nah, nah, nah
Let me take you to Rio, Rio
Fly over the ocean like an eagle, eagle
Then we can chill in my gazeebo, gazeebo
Oh, oh, oh, oh - nah, nah, nah
É tanta beleza a se perder de vista
Cidade floresta, meu cantinho quintal
Faz 40 graus para esquentar a vida
Faz uma batida pra ficar legal
Laje, a minha nave no alto do morro
Todo dia é dia de beijar o sol
Samba na batida projetos e rimas
Não tem fantasia tudo é carnaval
Let me take you to Rio, Rio
Fly over the ocean like an eagle, eagle
Then we can chill in my gazeebo, gazeebo
Oh, oh, oh, oh - nah, nah, nah
Let me take you to Rio, Rio
Fly over the ocean like an eagle, eagle
Then we can chill in my gazeebo, gazeebo
Oh, oh, oh, oh - nah, nah, nah
