Agua De Beber

Água de Beber by Antônio Carlos Jobim This song was featured on the album  The Composer of Desafinado, Plays released in 1963. The title means “Water to Drink”. Music written by Antônio Carlos Jobim and lyrics by Vinicius de Moraes.

The song was inspired by a walk that Jobim and Moraes were having in the governor’s house in Brasilia looking for somewhere to get a drink and eventually found the water well of the palace helped by a guard. The duo wrote a song about it and played it to the governor who asked them to write a symphony for the opening of the new capital.
