* On the songwriting credits for the English-language lyric to “Bonita,” Wikipedia says:

Gene Lees, who had written several other English-language lyrics for Jobim, claims that “Jobim gave my lyric to Bonita, which I had written in New York, to Ray Gilbert, who altered a phrase or two and put his name on it. If you look at the credits on the back of the album titled The Wonderful World of Antonio Carlos Jobim … you’ll find that the writer credit on Bonita reads Jobim/Gilbert. Gilbert produced an album for Warner Brothers in which he again used the song, again taking credit for the lyric…. I was furious at both records and took the matter up with the American Guild of Authors and Composers. A hearing was organized, with Sheldon Harnick as its chairman, and I presented the evidence of my authorship. The committee ruled that it was indeed my lyric, solely or largely…. The contretemps over Bonita was one of the reasons I parted company with Jobim.”[3]
