EL TORITO lyrics

LYRICS: Gregorio Villoldo
MUSIC: Gregorio Villoldo


Aqui tienen a El Torito.
El criollo más compadrito
que ha pisao la población.
Donde quiera me hago ver
cuando llega la ocasión.
Pa'la danza soy ladino,
y en cualquier baile argentino
donde yo me he presentao,
al mozo más bailarin
he dejao acobardao.

Cuando hago una sentadita
de aquellas que yo se hacer,
es el disloque, señores,
pues me tengo mucha fe.
Mi cuerpo es como un resorte
cuando me pongo a bailar,
y en todas partes el premio
a la fija se ganar.

Yo tengo una morochita
que es muy pierna y comadrita
en el arte de bailar,
y todavia no hallo
quien la pueda aventajar.
Todo el mundo nos alaba
y somos la yunta brava
conocida por aqui,
y nadie se presento
que nos pueda competir.

En los bailes nacionales
nadie nos puede igualar,
pues yo y mi prenda formamos
la pareja sin rival.
Lo mismo bailamos tango
que gato con relación.
La zamacueca, el cielito,
la huella y el pericon.

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
