Lyrics
When things get stale
You get on a boat and sail to Rio
The beaches and the sea
That's where I long to be
In Rio
But I'm workin' for the man every day up in the city
Got to get away on a boat around the corner
And it's waiting there for you and me
In Rio

Dark eyed lady
Drive Mercedes everywhere
In Rio
She said, "Do you want to take a ride?"
So I jumped right in beside her
In Rio

But I'm workin' for the man every day up in the city
Got to get away on a boat around the corner
And it's waiting there for you and me
In Rio

When things get stale
You get on a boat and sail to Rio
The beaches and the sea
That's where I long to be
In Rio

But I'm workin' for the man every day up in the city
Got to get away on a boat around the corner
And it's waiting there for you and me
In Rio
