ANGELITOS NEGROS Lyrics

LYRICS: Eloy Blanco and Alvarez Maciste
MUSIC: Eloy Blanco, Alvarez Maciste and Orquesta de Francisco Canaro


Pintor nacido en mi tierra,
con el pincel extranjero, 
pintor que siques el rumbo,
de tantos pintores viejos.

Aunque la virgen sea blanca,
pintame angelitos negros,
que tambien se van al cielo,
todos los negritos buenos.

Pintor si pintas con amor,
¿porque desprecias su color,
si sabes que en el cielo,
tambien los quiere dios?.

Pintor de santos de alcoba,
si tienes alma en el cuerpo,
¿porque al pintar en tus cuadros,
te olvidaste de los negros?.

Siempre que pintas iglesias,
pintas angelitos bellos,
pero nunca te acordaste,
de pintar un angel negro.

In tango, the relationship between lead and follower, man and woman, is so intense and all consuming, that there is simply no time for small talk. The last man I danced with, I know more intricately in many ways than his lover: I know that he perspires in a tiny spot above his brow; that when the dance slows and our connection is tight, his breathing almost stops; that when my leg sweeps his, he arches his neck imperceptibly upwards; that when another couple got too close he subconsciously enclosed me in a protective embrace; and that his hand rested so delicately on the flesh of my back. Yet all I know about him are his name and his country of origin. Small talk is a luxury not afforded to us tango addicts. - Anastasia Demaggio
