Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars (lyric version #2, with "Corcovado" included in the lyric)

~ Song

Annotation

there are at least two distinctly different English versions of Jobim's "Corcovado", the first written by Buddy Kaye, and a later one credited to Gene Lees (the version sung by Frank Sinatra), while many sources just credit them jointly for the song:
1. http://www.metrolyrics.com/quiet-nights-of-quiet-stars-corcovado-lyrics-tony-bennett.html (lyrics credited to Lees or Lees/Kaye, though this is probably the Buddy Kayes version; notably recorded by Tony Bennett)
2. http://www.metrolyrics.com/quiet-nights-of-quiet-stars-corcovado-lyrics-perry-como.html (note that the last line of the first verse, which now includes "Corcovado" in the lyrics, and the entire second verse are different)
3. http://www.metrolyrics.com/quiet-nights-of-quiet-stars-lyrics-frank-sinatra.html (lyrics credited to Lees or Lees/Kaye; this version notably recorded by Frank Sinatra) similar to #2 but for the slightly different last line of the first verse:
"And a window looking on the mountains and the sea, how lovely" instead of "And a window that looks out on Corcovado, oh how lovely".
