A (different) girl from Ipanema

.... and the Canadian boatswain Jason. 

   First trip in Belem, 

       a port in Brazil. 

       The Mate told them 

       that the Bosun is ill. 

       He did not want to frighten them 

       by telling the truth, 

       last night in Belem, 

       Bosun was killed, by his mistress Ruth. 

       An old friend of mine, 

       a great person. 

       I've always on my mind 

       the Canadian Bosun Jason.
