Album: Taught By Experts (1976)

  • Lyrics
  • This was Peter Allen's #1 Australian hit - it never became big in the States. Allen used it as his theme song and later performed it while riding a camel onstage at Radio City Music Hall.
  • Pablo Cruise also recorded "I Go to Rio" and also did an unrecorded version with Allen's original vocals. >>
