DEL PASADO lyrics

LYRICS: F. Maríno
MUSIC: F. Maríno


Un carro de carnicero,
todo color de esperanza
todo color de esperanza

El cimbronear de la lanza
al paso de los tronqueros
De tiro va el cadenero
sujetado a la culata,
sujetado a la culata.

Y entre tintes de escarlata
el sol se aleja abatido
Porque la noche ha encendido
su farolito de plata

Tranco a tranco entre penumbras
su silueta recortando,
sigue la chata avanzando
camino del corralon

Va colgando del pescate
balanceandose lustrada,
con tachelas dibujadas,
la estampa de un corazón.

Las riendas en la derecha
entre triston y altanero,
entre triston y altanero,
canturriaba Toba el carrero
con un clavel en la oreja.

Sombrero sobre una ceja,
un panuelito anudado,
un panuelito anudado,
pantalon abombachado,
blusa corta remangada,
y sobre el pecho estampada,
la inicial que le han bordado.

Casi envuelta por las sombras,
siempre a tranco acompasado,
chata criolla del pasado,
te vas para no volver.
Y llevas en el pescante,
marchando rumbo al olvido,
al carrerito florido
del Buenos Aires de ayer.

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
