LYRICS: Pascual Contursi
MUSIC: Juan Bautista Deambrogio

Bandoneon arrabalero,
viejo fuelle desinflado,
te encontre como a un pebete
que la madre abandono
en la puerta de un convento
sin reboque en las paredes,
a la luz de un farolito
que de noche te alumbro.

porque ves que estoy triste
y cantar ya no puedo,
vos sabes
que yo llevo en el alma
marcao un dolor.

Te lleve a mi pieza,
te acune en mi pecho frio,
yo también abandonado
me encontraba en el bulin;
has querido consolarme
con tu voz enronquecida
y tus notas doloridas
aumento mi berretin.

Tango Shoes

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
