LYRICS: Carlos Gardel
MUSIC: Carlos Gardel

¡Qué lindo es ver por el llano!
¡Qué lindo es ver por el llano!
Onde se va un pollero *
que partica*, y altanero va su vigüela portando
para los perros ladranado
y un resueldo y un maceta;
Los bueyes en la carreta
y el carretero picando.
La aurora aparece entonces...
la aurora aparece entonces...
Y por la loma un lucero;
y en un bullicio sincero
sale al campo el muy sobón
y el zurrinche retozón
que golpea de rama en rama
por aquel gaucho altacama
y apera su redomón.
Linda es esta mañanita...
linda es esta mañanita...
Cuando le pianto en la loma
que el poncho del pobre asoma 
dándole luz y esplendor
pero un rodeo al rodar
y relichar al sotreta
que goza haciendo gambeta
al lazo de un redomón

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...
