DUELO CRIOLLO lyrics

LYRICS: Lito Bayardo
MUSIC: Juan Razzano


Mientras la luna serena
baña con su luz de plata
como un sollozo de pena
se oye cantar su canción.

La canción dulce y sentida
que todo el barrio escuchaba
cuando el silencio reinaba
en el viejo caseron.

Cuentan que fue la piba del arrabal
la flor del barrio aquel
que amaba un payador
solo para ella canto el amor
al pie de su ventanal
pero otro amor por aquella mujer
nacio en el corazón del taura más mentao
que un farol en duelo criollo vio.

Ah, bajo su debil luz morir los dos
por eso gimen las noches
de tan silenciosa calma
esa canción que es el broche
de aquel amor que paso
de pena la linda piba
abrio bien anchas sus alas
y con su virtud y sus galas
hasta el cielo se volo.

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
