ARRABAL AMARGO Lyrics

LYRICS: Alfredo Le Pera
MUSIC: Carlos Gardel


Arrabal amargo
Metido en mi vida
Como una condena
De una maldición,
Tus sombras torturan
mis horas de sueño,
Tu noche se encierra
En mi corazón
Con ella a mi lado
No vi tus tristezas,
Tu barro y miseria,
Ella era mi luz
Y ahora vencido
Arrastro mi alma,
Clavado a tus calles
Igual que a una cruz.

REFRAN
Rinconcito arrabalero
Con el toldo de estrellas
De tu patio que quiero
Todo, todo se ilumina
Cuando ella vuelve a verte,
Y mis viejas madreselvas
Estan en flor para quererte
Como una nube que pasa,
Mis ensueños se van,
Se van, no vuelven mas.

I (Bis)
No digas a nadie
que ya no me quieres,
Si a mi me preguntan
Dire que vendras
Y así cuando vuelvas
Mi alma te juro
Los ojos extraños
No se asombraran
Veras como todos
esperaban ansiosos.
Mi blanca casita
Y el viejo rosal,
Y como de nuevo
Alivia sus penas
Vestido de fiesta
Mi lindo arrabal.

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
