Tico tico no fubá

First line:
O tico tico tá, tá outra vez aqui
author of text

This renowned Brazilian choro piece was popularized by the performance of Carmen Miranda in the film Copacabana in 1947. The lyrics describe the cooing of the tico-tico bird and the wooing of women. We loved singing this for the audience at our concert in Rio de Janeiro in 2013 during our debut visit to the wonderful country of Brazil.
