"Waters of March (Aguas De Marco)" as written by and Antonio Carlos Jobim....
É pau, é pedra,
é o fim do caminho
É um resto de toco,
é um pouco sozinho

A stick, a stone,
It’s the end of the road,
It’s feeling alone
It’s the weight of your load

It’s a sliver of glass
It’s light, it’s the sun
It’s night, it’s death
It’s a knife, it’s a gun

A flower that blooms
A fox in the brush
A knot in the wood
The song of a thrush

The mystery of life
The steps down the hall
The sound of the wind
And the waterfall

It’s the moon floating free
The curve of the slope
It’s an ant, it’s a bee
It’s a reason for hope

And the riverbank sings
Of the waters of March
It’s the promise of Spring
It’s the joy in your heart

É o pé, é o chão,
é a marcha estradeira
Passarinho na mão,
pedra de atiradeira

É uma ave no céu,
é uma ave no chão
É um regato, é uma fonte,
é um pedaço de pão

É o fundo do poço,
é o fim do caminho
No rosto o desgosto,
é um pouco sozinho

A spear, a spike,
A stake, a nail
It’s a drip, it’s a drop
It’s the end of the tale

The dew on a leaf
In the morning light
The shot of a gun
In the dead of night

A mile, a must
A thrust, a bump
It’s the will to survive
It’s a jolt, it’s a jump

The prim of a house
A body in bed
A car stuck in the mud
It’s the mud, it’s the mud

A fish, a flash
A wish, a wing
It’s a hawk, it’s a dove
It’s the promise of Spring

And the riverbank sings
Of the waters of March
It’s the end of despair
It’s the joy in your heart

É uma cobra, é um pau,
é João, é José
É um espinho na mão,
é um corte no pé

São as águas de março
fechando o verão
É a promessa de vida
no teu coração

A stick, a stone
It’s the end of the road
The stump of a tree
It’s a frog, it’s a toad

A sigh, a breath
A walkaround
A life or death
A ray in the sun

And the riverbank sings
Of the waters of March
It’s the promise of life
It’s the joy in your heart

    Song MeaningThis song is bout life itself , but its left up to the listener to make out that life.. right ?
    Tom Jobim was a very smart man and the most important song writer along with Vinicius de Moraes in Brazil. All brazilian music comes from their spark to me.

    General CommentThis is a fun pop song, but the words don't really do much for me. I think they're just a little too random, and the weightier images and thoughts thrown in seem like weak attempts to make the song seem more meaningful than it ends up being. And maybe the "É/It is" repetition is a little too cute and makes each line seem like it's declaring its importance a little too much for my taste. Anyway, I've noticed that most songs in general don't try to be very coherent, and when they are, they're usually so straightforward that they're bland and boring. And at least this song isn't boring.
