LYRICS: Ángel Gregorio Villoldo
MUSIC: Ángel Gregorio Villoldo

Soy porteño como el tango milonguero.
del tiempo que reinaron los troveros
de acción.
Que digan los que son del malevaje
que ayer temblaron por mi coraje...
Y en los bailes de hacha y tiza
se peleaban por mi...
Las pibas más bonitas disputaban
mi amor,
y siempre palpitaban corazones
por el porteño más buen mozo y picaflor.

Soy porteño del noventa
tiempos bravos del tambito;
bailarin de mucha menta,
por más señas El Porteñito.

Soy del tiempo de Villoldo,
de los Grecos y de Arolas,
que al tanguear con doña Lola
pestañeaban al más pintao.

Tango Shoes

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
