COPA DE AJENJO lyrics

LYRICS: Carlos Pesce
MUSIC: Juan Canaro


I

Suena tango compañero,
suena que quiero cantar,
porque esta noche la espero
y se que no ha de llegar,
y en esta copa de ajenjo
en vano pretendo mis penas ahogar;
suena tango compañero,
suena que quiero llorar.

II

Pensar que la quise tanto
y embrujao por sus encantos
hoy perdi la dignidad;
soy un borracho perdido
que en la copa del olvido
busca su felicidad;
son caprichos del destino
que lo quiso una mujer,
si esta marcado mi sino
quien sabe si ha de volver...
pero yo la esperare!...
Suena tango compañero
como una recordación,
si lloro porque la quiero,
son cosas del corazón!
Sirva otra copa de ajenjo
que a nadie le importa si quiero tomar,
porque esta noche la espero
y se que no ha de llegar...

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
