Atenti Pebeta Lyrics

LYRICS: Celedonio Esteban Flores
MUSIC: Ciriaco Ortíz
YEAR: 1929


Cuando estés en la vereda 
y te fiche un bacanazo, 
vos hacete la chitrula 
y no te le deschavés;

que no manye que estás lista 
al primer tiro de lazo
y que un par de leones
bién planchados te perdés.-

Cuando vengas para el centro, 
caminá mirando el suelo,
arrastrando los fanguyos
y arrimada a la pared.

Como si ya no tuvieras
ilusiones ni consuelo,
pues, si no, dicen los giles,
que te has echao a perder.-

Si ves unos guantes patito, ¡rajáles!.
A un par de polainas, ¡rajáles también!.
A esos sobretodos con catorce ojales
no le dés bolilla, porque te perdés;

A esos bigotitos de catorce líneas
que en vez de bigotes son un espinel...
¡Atenti pebeta!. Seguí mi consejo;
yo soy zorro viejo y te quiero bién.-

Abajate la pollera 
por donde nace el tobillo,
dejate crecer el pelo 
y un buen rodete lucí.-

Comprate un corsé de fierro
con remaches y tornillos
y dale el olivo al polvo
a la crema y al carmín.-

Tomá leche con vainillas
o chocolate con churros
aunque estés en el momento 
propiamente del vermut.-

Después comprate un bufoso
y cachando al primer turro, 
por amores contrariados
le hacés perder la salud.

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
