DE MI BARRIO lyrics

LYRICS: Roberto Goyeneche
MUSIC: Roberto Goyeneche


Yo de mi barrio era la piba más bonita,
en un colegio de monjas me eduque
y aunque mis viejos no tenian mucha guita,
con familias bacanas me trate.

Y por culpa de ese trato abacanado,
ser niña bien fue mi unica ilusion
y olvidando por completo mi pasado,
a un magnate le entregue mi corazón.

Por su porte y su trato distinguido,
por las cosas que me mintio al oido,
no crei que pudieroa ser malvado
un muchacho tan correcto y educado.

Sin embargo me indujo el mal hombre,
con promesas de darme su nombre,
a dejar mi hogar abandonado
para ir a vicir a su lado.

Y por eso que mi vida se desliza
entre el tango y el champan del cabaret;
mi dolor se confunde en mi risa
porque a reir mi dolor me acostumbre.

Y si encuentro algun otario que pretenda
por el oro mis amores conseguir,
yo lo dejo sin un cobre pa' que aprenda
y me pague lo que aquel me hizo sufrir.

Hoy bailo el tango, soy milonguera
me llaman loca y no se que;
soy flor de fango, una cualquiera,
culpa del hombre que me engaño.

Y entre las luces de mil colores
y la alegria del cabaret,
vendo caricias y vendo amores
para olvidar a aquel que se fue.

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
