"Wave" (also known as "Vou Te Contar" in Portuguese) is a bossa nova song written by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Recorded as an instrumental on Jobim's 1967 album of the same name, English lyrics were composed by Jobim in 1967 and used for a November 11, 1969 recording by Frank Sinatra, released on his 1970 album Sinatra & Company.[1] On this recording, Sinatra sang his lowest note, a low E.[2]

The song was voted by the Brazilian edition of Rolling Stone to be the 73rd greatest Brazilian song.[3]
