LYRICS: Pedro Noda and Alfredo Loruso
MUSIC: Agustín Magaldi Coviello

Señor, padre cura de la serranía
le digo un secreto con toda humildad
que ayer por la tarde le di una paliza
a la Domiciana de entrar a bajar.
Es que la chuscana me dio su palabra,
cambiamos de anillos y me iba a casar,
más luego risulta, que anduvo de farra
con un forastero de la capital.
Me dijo llorando que eso era mentira,
que fue en automóvil, sin mala intención;
yo le iba creyendo cuando mi (sic) ponía
su boca pintada como un corazón.
Hablaba chillando como mascarita,
meniaba la cola como un yarabón ;
le vide patente... la enagua clarita
y el pelo cortao al estilo varón.
Entonces, lagarto, le asenté en el lomo
suavecito, suave sin hacerle mal
yo no sé a que porras se quejó 
ni como es que la dentraron en el hospital 
Es que yo la quiero, la quiero y la quiero
con todas las fuerzas de un guaso animal.
¡Bendígame padre, 
por si es que me encuentro 
con el forastero de la capital!
Agora pregunto a su Cencia (sic) Santa 
si debo, o no debo por la religión,
hacer como el Cristo con la Domiciana
o dir a decirle: "tomá mi perdón"
¡Y tengo una pena 
que llora por dentro, 
que llora por dentro de mi corazón,
como una campana lejana, lejana,
lejana, lejana que pide oración!

From Carole McCurdy: After that tanda, I found that every man I danced with that evening had something beautiful to offer, no matter their postural eccentricites or limitations of technique. In fact, their eccentricities and limitations were something to be respected and accorded a value, something that added rich flavor to the dance. If my partner is stiff as a board, well, it means that we begin the tanda by doing the 'stiff as a board' tango, which can offer some very creative moments of shared comedy, playing close to the edge of being off-balance. Whee-ha-ha. Maybe by the end of the tanda our dance will have expanded into something more soft and flexible and grounded, maybe not. The cortina has its own great value, after all.
I left the milonga that night feeling thrilled and humbled. How sorely I had underestimated these 'bad dancers,' how foolishly I had cheated myself out of the deeper pleasures of connecting in the dance. It wan't somebody else's fat ego getting in the way of dancing, it was my own.
Astrid responds: It works both ways. The great advantage (and burden) that women have in dancing the tango is that it enables them to experience a hundred different worlds, by dancing with different men and, if they are sensitive and intuitive enough, for a while becoming that man's creation to certain extent, for better or for worse...
It also works the other way round. One of the best dancers has told me that he dances in a different way with every woman, because she inspires him to do certain moves.
And the total is then always more than just the sum of its parts. Wish that in real life we also had some music to guide us to follow each other's steps...
