BARRIO DE TANGO lyrics

LYRICS: Homero Manzi
MUSIC: Aníbal Carmelo Troilo (Pichuco)


Un pedazo de barrio, alla en Pompeya,
durmiendose al costado del terraplen.
Un farol balanceando en la barrera
y el misterio de adiós que siembra el tren.
Un ladrido de perros a la luna,
el amor escondido en un porton,
y los sapos redoblando en la laguna
y a lo lejos la voz del bandoneón.

Barrio de tango, luna y misterio,
calles lejanas, como estaran!
Viejos amigos que hoy ni recuerdo
que se habran hecho, que es lo que haran!
Barrio de tango, que fue de aquella
Juana, la rubia que tanto ame,
Sabra que sufro, pensando en ella,
desde la tarde en que la deje...
Barrio de tango, luna y misterio,
desde el recuerdo te vuelvo a ver!

Un coro de silbidos, alla en la esquina.
El codillo llenando el almacen.
Y el dramon de la palida vecina
que ya nunca salio a mirar el tren.
Asi evoco tus noches, barrio 'e tango,
con las chatas entrando al corralon
y la luna chapalendo sobre el fango
y a lo lejos la voz del bandoneón.

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
