Life is simple, never sinful
Never under, understand
It’s all so painful, non-eventful
We can’t work it, work it out

But we're early birds
And it’s our turn, turn, turn again

CHORUS:
The king and queen of the Carioca
Dancing cheek to cheek
The king and queen of the Carioca
The dark end of a street
Do we need to grow so tall
And long for
The king and queen of the Carioca?

I was hungry, I was thirsty
Many times I, I have died
But you helped me, revoked the charity
You fight against the older life

‘Cause the early birds
And the times they are a-changing

I saw myself die
As the band went on playing
And Jesus returned
And he carried on praying
And though we say "no"
We carry on swaying
