“Rio” Lyrics

Hearing the light from the window
I’m seeing the sound of the sea
My feet have come loose from their moorings
I’m feeling quite wonderfully free

So I think I will travel to Rio
I’ll use the music for flight
For there’s nothing I know of in Rio
But it’s something to do with the night

It’s only a whimsical notion
To fly down to Rio tonight
I probably won’t fly down to Rio
Then again, I just might

Because there’s wings to the thought behind fancy
Yes, there’s wings to the thought behind play
And dancing to rhythms of laughter
Makes laughter the rhythm of rain

So I think I will travel to Rio
Using the music for flight
There’s nothing I know of in Rio, ah
But it’s something I can do with the night

Yeah, it’s only a whimsical notion, I know
To fly down to Rio tonight
And I probably won’t fly down to Rio
But, then again, I might

[break]

I feel such a sense of well-being, yeah, I’ll say
These problems have come to be solved
And what I thought was proper for battle
I see now is proper for love

So I think I will travel to Rio
Using the music for flight
There’s nothing I know of in Rio
But it’s something I can do with the night

It’s only a whimsical notion, ah
To fly down to Rio tonight
I probably won’t fly down to Rio
Ha, but then again, I just might
Yeah, I just might fly down to Rio tonight
I just jump on an airplane and fly down there
I could get on a boat and go down there
I could swim
Just take the music
