The Girl From Ipanema was recorded in 1963 by Antonio Carlos Jobim. It is one of my all-time favorite songs of the 60s. If you're not familiar with this one, here it is on YouTube.

FM7 Tall and tan and young and lovely G7 The girl from Ipanema goes walking, Gm7 Gb7 FM7 Gb9 And when she passes, each one she passes goes, "Ahhh." FM7 When she walks, she's like a samba G7 That swings so cool and sways so gentle, Gm7 Gb7 FM7 That when she passes, each one she passes goes, "Ahhh." Bridge: Gbmaj7 Cb9 Oh, but I watch her so sadly; F#m7 D9 How can I tell her I love her? Gm7 Eb9 Yes, I would give my heart gladly, Am7 D7-9 But each day when she walks to the sea, Gm7 C7-9 She looks straight ahead, not at me. FM7 Tall and tan and young and lovely G7 The girl from Ipanema goes walking, Gm7 Gb7 And when she passes, I smile, FM7 Gb7 FM7 Gb7 But she doesn't see, no she doesn't see, FM7 Gb7 Fmaj7 No she doesn't see.
