"K.K. Bossa" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It is a slow, light jazzy tune that is based on the Brazilian music genre bossa nova, or simply "bossa." It bears some resemblance to the popular bossa nova song "The Girl from Ipanema."

Not just the wind

As long as

A gift found on the beach
It might be calling out to you
