CORTADA DE CARABELAS lyrics

LYRICS: Carlos De La Púa
MUSIC: Carlos De La Púa


Cortada de carabelas ...
reñidero mistongo de curdas y cafañas,
de vivillos de grupo y de vivos de veras
la cortada es el último refugio
de los canas y la cueva obligada
de las barras nocheras ...
Barajada en el naipe de las calles centrales
Carabelas es la carta mas brava del asfalto,
su abolengo ranero lo tiene por cabales
y a pesar del ambiente lo conserva bien alto,
el mejor elemento de vida cadenera
pasó por sus boliches tranquila y respetada,
desde la mina aquella de la crencha engrasada
a la grela orillera aquella del reloj de pulsera.
En sus rantes bulines han truqueado broncosas
las barras mas temibles de los tiempos pasados,
y sus viejas paredes presenciaron famosas peleas
que dejaban cuatro o cinco tajeados...
la clásica encordada de los grandes cantores
deschavaron sus penas en sus peringundines,
hoy... la vieja cortada de Carabelas
tiene nueva pinta, pero flota en su ambiente,
esa vida pasada, como flota en la viola
la cinta que pusiera prolija la mano enamorada
de una grela, una grela de la crencha engrasada.

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
