EL TIGRE MILLAN lyrics

LYRICS: Francisco Canaro
MUSIC: Francisco Canaro


Picao de viruela, bastante morocho,
encrespao el pelo lo mismo que mota
un hondo barbijo a su cara rota
le daba un aspecto de taita matón,
De carácter hosco, bien fornido y fuerte
afrontó el peligro cual bravo titán,
jamás tuvo miedo ni aun ante la muerte
porque era muy hombre "El Tigre Millan"

Pobre Tigre que una noche en Puente Alsina
dos cobardes lo mataron a traición.
Era guapo, de esos guapos más temidos que facón.
Mala suerte, pobre Tigre siempre tuvo
en cuestiones de escolazos y de amor

Pues no era bien parecido
y fatalmente metido
con la mujer que adoró,
nunca fué correspondido
y ella al fin lo traicionó.

Cuentan que una noche, bramó como fiera
en un entrevero, que hasta hoy se comenta.
Repartiendo hachazos, era una tormenta!
mostró su coraje venciendo a un malón.

Parece mentira que hombres de su laya
mueran siempre en manos de un ruin cobardón.
Hoy la muchachada, Tigre, te recuerda
Y aquella culpable llora su traición.

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
