EL CHINO PANTALEON lyrics

LYRICS: Francisco Canaro
MUSIC: Francisco Canaro


Caballeros milongueros,
la milonga esta formada
y el que cope la parada
que se juegue todo entero
si es que tiene compañero,
la guitarra bien templada
pa' aguantar cualquier trenzada
con razón o sin razón,
cara a cara, frente a frente,
corazón a corazón.

Era el Chino Pantaleón
milonguero y cachafaz,
que al sonar de un bandoneón
viboreaba en su compás.
Era un taura pa'copar
y de ley como el mejor;
si lo entraban a apurar
era capaz de cantar
La violeta o Trovador.

Caballeros milongueros,
vayan saliendo a la cancha
porque el que hace la "patancha"
es señal que le da el cuero;
siempre el que pega primero
lleva la mayor ventaja;
no le ponen la mortaja
al que tira sin errar;
no es de vivo, compañero,
el dejarse madrugar.

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
