One Note Samba

“Samba de Uma Nota Só” (“One Note Samba”) – composed by Antônio Carlos Jobim with Portuguese lyrics by Newton Mendonça

The song title refers to the main melody line, which at first consists of a long series of notes of a single tone (typically D, as played in the key of G) played over a descending chord progression in a bossa nova rhythm. The first eight measures consist of D, followed by four measures of G, and then four measures of D.

Russian text by Alexey Ivashchenko, exelent reflect the meaning of the song and perfectly falls on the rhythm of the song.

My version is in both languages, Russian and Portuguese.
