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 stare
Drive Mercedes everywhere in Rio
She said, "Do you wanna 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

It's waiting there for me in Rio
It's waiting there for you in Rio
Oh everybody come on get on now

When things get stale
I jump on the boat and sail to Rio
Beaches and the sea
That's where I want 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

It's waiting there for me in Rio
It's waiting there for you in Rio
Everybody better get on now in Rio

SIMMONS, PAT/BAXTER, JEFFREY ALLEN
