COTORRITA DE LA SUERTE lyrics

LYRICS: José De Grandis
MUSIC: Alfredo De Franco


Como tose la obrerita por la noche,
tose y sufre por el cruel presentimiento
de su vida que se extingue, y el tormento
no abandona a su tierno corazón.
La obrerita juguetona, pizpireta,
la que diera a su casita la alegria,
la que vive largas horas de agonia
porque sabe que a su mal no hay salvación.

Pasa un hombre quien pregona:
Cotorrita de la suerte
augura la vida o muerte!
Quieren la suerte probar?
La obrerita se resiste
por la duda temerosa
y un papel de color rosa
la cotorra va a sacar.

Al leerlo su mirada se animaba,
y temblando ante la dicha prometida
tan alegre leyo: un novio, larga vida...
y un sollozo en su garganta reprimio.
Desde entonces deslizaronse sus dias
esperando al bien amado ansiosamente,
y la tarde en que moria tristemente
pregunto a su mamita: No llego?

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
