COMO SE PIANTA LA VIDA! lyrics

LYRICS: Carlos Viván
MUSIC: Carlos Viván


Berretines locos de muchacho rana
me arrastraron ciego en mi juventud,
en milongas, timbas y en otras macanas
donde fui palmando toda mi salud.
Mi copa bohemia de rubia champaña
brindando amorios borracho la alce.
Mi vida fue un barco cargado de hazañas
que junto a las playas del mal lo encalle.

Como se pianta la vida!
Como rezongan los años
cuando fieros desengaños
nos van abriendo una herida!
Es triste la primavera
si se vive desteñida...
Como se pianta la vida
del muchacho calavera!

Los veinte abriles cantaron un dia
la milonga triste de mi berretin
y en la contradanza de esa algarabia
al trompo de mi alma le falto piolin.
Hoy estoy pagando aquellas ranadas,
final de los vivos que siempre se da;
Me encuentro sin chance en esta jugada...
La muerte sin grupo ha entrada a tallar...

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
