LYRICS: Homero Expósito
MUSIC: Armando Pontier

Para cantarle al amor
no se precisa experiencia:
se forma un nido entre dos
y lo demás... va sin letra.
Que así empecé esta milonga
bien criolla y bien porteña,
para cantarle al amor
que sólo siento por ella.

Ella es triste como un tango,
ella tiene gusto a menta
y es sencilla como el lazo
que me anuda a su tristeza.
Ella es como el mate amargo,
bien criolla y bien porteña,
y es acorde en la guitarra.
Qué milonga milonguera
la canción de la esperanza
que el amor hace canción!

Para cantarle al amor
no hay que mirar las estrellas,
hay que ser hombre de honor
y lo demás... no interesa,
que al terminar la milonga
bien criolla y bien porteña,
para cantarle al amor
yo canto de esta manera.

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
