LYRICS: Reinaldo Yiso
MUSIC: Juan Puey

Golpearon la puerta de la humilde casa,
la voz del cartero muy clara se oyó,
y el pibe corriendo con todas sus ansias
al perrito blanco sin querer pisó.

"Mamita, mamita" se acerco gritando
la madre extrañada dejo el piletón
y el pibe le dijo riendo y llorando
el club me ha mandado hoy la citación.

Mamita querida
ganaré dinero
seré un Baldonedo,
un Martino o un Boye;
dicen los muchachos
del oeste Argentino
que tengo más tiro
que el gran Bernabé.

Vas a ver que lindo
cuando allá en la cancha
mis goles aplaudan
seré un triunfador
jugare en la quinta
después en primera
yo sé que me espera
la consagración


Dormía el muchacho
y tuvo esa noche
el sueño más lindo
que pudo tener.
El estadio lleno,
glorioso domingo
por fin en primera
lo iban a ver.

Faltando un minuto están cero a cero;
tomo la pelota, sereno en su acción,
gambeteando a todos se enfrentó al arquero
y con fuerte tiro quebró el marcador.

From Carole McCurdy: After that tanda, I found that every man I danced with that evening had something beautiful to offer, no matter their postural eccentricites or limitations of technique. In fact, their eccentricities and limitations were something to be respected and accorded a value, something that added rich flavor to the dance. If my partner is stiff as a board, well, it means that we begin the tanda by doing the 'stiff as a board' tango, which can offer some very creative moments of shared comedy, playing close to the edge of being off-balance. Whee-ha-ha. Maybe by the end of the tanda our dance will have expanded into something more soft and flexible and grounded, maybe not. The cortina has its own great value, after all.
I left the milonga that night feeling thrilled and humbled. How sorely I had underestimated these 'bad dancers,' how foolishly I had cheated myself out of the deeper pleasures of connecting in the dance. It wan't somebody else's fat ego getting in the way of dancing, it was my own.
Astrid responds: It works both ways. The great advantage (and burden) that women have in dancing the tango is that it enables them to experience a hundred different worlds, by dancing with different men and, if they are sensitive and intuitive enough, for a while becoming that man's creation to certain extent, for better or for worse...
It also works the other way round. One of the best dancers has told me that he dances in a different way with every woman, because she inspires him to do certain moves.
And the total is then always more than just the sum of its parts. Wish that in real life we also had some music to guide us to follow each other's steps...
