40 year old women - Mulher de 40

Roberto Carlos is a famous Brazilian poet with an oddly specific taste in women: they gotta be exactly 20 years younger than him. Once he turned 60, to celebrate that his new dating cohort was fully socially acceptable, he wrote a song about it, while praising the advantages of dating such women, which are considered by much to be too old to be part of the dating pool. This resonated with the brazilian public, and it has become a regular fixture on the yearly Christmas special played at the state-owning TV Station Globo.
Beautiful smile
Look of someone that knows something about the life
Knows love
And who knows a pain
kept hidden

By experience
Knows the difference
between love and passion
What is truth
A quick affair
or pure illusion

Is young enough
But not like earlier
But it is so beautiful
She is a woman
That knows what she wants
and on love believes

I don't want to know
About your life, your story
Not even your past
40 years old woman
I just wanna be
your boyfriend

Age doesn't matter
The happiness
Arrives one day
If she lives happy
Or wait again to meet a new one

If she gets distracted
A tear drop
When looking into the past
Her distant look
Go in an instant
To a golden time

Retouch the make-up
Full of courage
This beautiful woman
That is not a girl anymore
But fascinates everyone
And conquers me

I don't want to know
About your life, your story
Not even your past
40 years old woman
I just wanna be
your boyfriend
