Back in Brazil
There lives a girl
Dreams of the future
And a far, far better world

Back in Brazil
She meets a man
He's tall and handsome
And he fits her with a plan

Bright lights ahead
Music and fun
Nights out for dancing
And the days for the sun
All kinds of weather, did surely come and go
But they're together
And together they will steal the show

Ichiban, Ichiban, Ichiban
Ichiban, Ichiban, Ichiban
Ichiba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ban

Back in Brazil
She makes a date
He has to cancel
'Cause they got him working late

Back in Brazil
She feels afraid
Hope starts to crumble
And her dream begins to fade

Her lights are out
She's gone to bed
Light's out for sleeping
If a girl's to get ahead
Even the weather
Has started changing too
But they'll be together
And together they will make it through

Ichiban, Ichiban, Ichiban
Ichiban, Ichiban, Ichiban
Ichiban

So we raise a family as the clouds roll by
Making pictures of us in the sky
The kids are happy and they don't ask why
Pa-pa-pa-pa-pa you and I
