karen souza & wax – encino lyrics

Loading...

[intro: karen souza]
i met a boy in encino
i was workin’ at a c+cktail bar
i poured him a caipirinha
and said i liked the way he played guitar
i said, “do you know ipanema?”
’cause i’m a long way from sao paulo
oh, baby
why don’t you
take me home?
[verse 1: wax]
i used to make some extra money strummin’ my guitar
in encino, california at a cozy little wine bar
ventura boulevard’s hidden treasure
high end clientele mixing business with pleasure
they served light fare all night there
small plates to share, people on dates, tryna create some flair
and i was part of that ambience
up in the corner with my nylon strings playin’ all night long
on one particular night the bartender was new
on a scale of one to ten she was one hundred and two
but i had a job to do, i tried to pay her no mind
but as i strummed my strings interestingly i’d find
there were certain melodies that resonated more with her
when i played certain chords it really struck a chord with her
didn’t say a word to me but her eyes spoke volumes
quarter past one, i knew it’d be last call soon

[chorus: karen souza]
i met a boy in encino
i was workin’ at a c+cktail bar
i poured him a caipirinha
and said i liked the way he played guitar
i said, “do you know ipanema?”
’cause i’m a long way from sao paulo (sao paulo)
oh, baby (oh, baby)
why don’t you (why don’t you)
take me home?
[verse 2: wax]
she had given all the customers the checks
one by one they all exited
next, said goodbye to the chef
now me and her the last ones left but i was stayin’
i was hypnotized by her side to side swayin’
at this point i’m only playin’ what her hips request
it was solely bossa nova, i was doin’ my best
she wandered up to me and whispered, “have you been to brazil?”
i said i been to fogo de chao in beverly hills
is that enough? she found that humorous
she grabbed us two cups then she filled ’em up
we didn’t really get drunk, we just got a little buzz
then we danced all night, what an evening it was
this girl was fine as it gets, and very direct, far from standoffish
things got hot and heavy in the back office
there is magic in the music from brazil to cali
and love in the air of the san fernando valley, ayy

[bridge: karen souza]
roses in my mind
when i see his smile
this is how it feels to be in rio
i don’t wanna think
just put your arms around
we could disappear
let’s get out of here
[chorus: karen souza]
i met a boy in encino
i was workin’ at a c+cktail bar
i poured him a caipirinha
and said i liked the way he played guitar
i said, “do you know ipanema?”
’cause i’m a long way from sao paulo (sao paulo)
oh, baby (oh, baby)
why don’t you (why don’t you)
take me home?

[outro: karen souza]
sao paulo
oh, baby
sao paulo
oh, baby
sao paulo
oh, baby
sao paulo
oh, baby
sao paulo
oh, baby
