DESAFINADO (Frank Sinatra) Antonio Carlos Jobim (m) Jon Hendricks (l) as rec by Frank Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim w Orch cond by Morris Stoloff Feb 12th 1969 When I try to sing you say I'm off-key, Why can't you see how much this hurts me? With your perfect beauty and you perfect pitch, You're a perfect dabber! When I come around, Must you always put me down? If you say my singing is off-key, my love, You will hurt my feelings, don't you see, my love? I wish I had an ear like yours, a voice that would behave; All I have is feeling and the voice God gave! You insist my music goes against the rules! Yes, but rules were never made for lovesick fools! I brought this little song to you, but you don't care! It's a crooked song, ah but all my heart is there! The things that you would see if you would do your part! Yes, even if I'm out of tune, I have a gentle heart! I took your picture with my trusty Rollaflex, And now all I have developed is a complex! Possibly in vain I hope you weakem, oh my love, And forget those rigid rules that undermine my dream of A life of love and music with someone who understands That even though I may be out of tune When I attempt to say how much I love you, All that matters is the message that I bring, Whis is, "My dear one, I love you!".
