"Uma vez me pediste sorrindo eu voltei, outra vez me pediste chorando eu voltei..." Caymmi absolutamente fantástico!

Such a nice video. What do they say before he sings? The lady seems to be sad, tells him to wait, but why? she seems to be so much in love.
and why does he look at the sea instead of her? a pity the video ends before the song's finished..
but still... a moment of pure pleasure

I agree, this is a *great* video.

>> What do they say before he sings?

Before singing, Caymmi and the lady were talking about marriage and such other boring things. Caymmi asks her for marriage and she said it is too early for that.

>> why does he look at the sea instead of her?

Disturbing question, perhaps a lady that declines such offer does not deserve attention. It was wise of Caymmi to look at the sea, instead of her. I would make the same.

Thanks for this comment.

Dorival Caymmi is outstanding.
